Nordic Game 2018 has now concluded. Many thanks to our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, partners and participants, and see you again next year.

Nordic Game is very much about knowledge and business, but emotion – that unique Nordic Game vibe – is an important part of the experience, as you meet, greet and mingle with industry people from the region and around the world.
