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.
Last May, Nordic Game once again offered three days of social and networking events, gatherings and unique happenings.
NG19 Meet & mingle
Representatives from games companies, industry associations, educational institutions and gaming communities throughout the Nordic region and around the globe will host a series of networking events at this year’s conference.
On Tuesday, 21 May from 18.00-21.00, Game Habitat will host a NG19 kick-off reception. Before we all get super busy during the Nordic Game conference, join the Game Habitat community for drinks, meet other devs coming to NG19 and mingle with the game studios, companies and indie devs that together with Nordic Game make Southern Sweden one of the best game hubs in Europe. Sign-up here.
Also on Wednesday from 18.00-late, IGDA will host the IGDA Party at Slagthuset’s restaurant.
Lunch served daily (Wednesday-Friday, 12:00–14:30) for all delegates in the Dining Hall.
NG19 Hang-out & chill
More spaces to relax and socialise than ever at NG19. Visit the Mish Mash drawing booth and get your artwork displayed on the big screen at Slagthuset. Both the Expo floor and Dinner Experience will feature a special photo booth to capture your memories on film, kindly sponsored by InnoGames. And expanded this year is the Unity Barista cafe, offering your favorite coffee drinks in a new outdoor lounge area.
NG19 Happy Hours
Lots of mingle and refreshments guaranteed at this year’s first official Happy Hour on Wednesday, 22 May from 17:00-18:00. Join Happy Hour 2.0 on Thursday, 23 May from 17:00-18:00. All the fun sponsored by our friends at Sharkmob.
2019 Nordic Game Awards
A highlight of the Nordic Game conference, the Nordic Game Awards return on Thursday, 23 May at 18:00 in the Unreal Theatre, supported by our good friends at Epic Games/Unreal Engine.
New! Nordic Game Dinner Experience
Our annual dinner for all conference participants (reservation required) gets a major makeover this year, and will feature great food, drinks and live entertainment at Moriska Paviljongen from 19:00. Also expect a very special surprise from the fantastic folks at Avalanche Studios in Malmö.
2019 Nordic Party
Party time! Following the debut Dinner Experience on Thursday night from 21:00, we’ll celebrate with bars, marioke, dancing, cheering and mingle 🙂 Bucket loads of Nordic fun!
NG19 After Hours
On Friday from 17:00-20:00, chill at the bar, enjoy snacks and bid us fond farewell (until next year) 🙂
Bonus event! NG19 and Creative Coast Wrap-Up
On Sunday, 26 May (the weekend following NG19) from 13.00-17.00, Game Habitat invites everyone to a post-NG19 and Creative Coast wrap-up session, presented by Elie Abraham and guest Niklas Mikkelsen (organiser for this year’s Creative Coast Festival), to share their best takeaways and highlights from NG19 and this year’s festival. Come and relax with us over a lovely Sunday brunch with wraps (of course, it’s a wrap-up), drinks and games! A great way to catch-up on the week’s highlights, latest news or just wind down and chill out, have some ice cream, beer and talk about your impressions of both events. Sign-up here.
