Nordic Game 2017 has now concluded. Many thanks to our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, partners and participants, and see you again next year.

We are very proud to welcome you to this fourteenth edition of Nordic Game, the only conference in the world with a dedicated focus on the entire Nordic games industry. For the next three days, we’ll provide you with a wealth of opportunities for your knowledge, emotion and business in games to grow.

Once again, we’ve made our best effort to create a speaker program that’s a “window” for two very important groups of people; our esteemed peers who have travelled to Malmö from around the world, to gain insights into the Nordic games industry and learn some of the secrets behind the region’s tremendous success, and our colleagues here at home, looking outwards to the global community for inspiration and knowledge.

As such, Fast Track returns this year (on Thursday and Friday) with a wide range of short, useful and to-the-point talks about game development and production, featuring “in-depth” and “intense” post-mortems and problem-solving sessions from developers based here and abroad.

We are also very proud to announce a series of curated talks by long-time partners Copenhagen Game Collective (on Friday) and industry media leader GamesIndustry.biz (Wednesday-Friday), as well as keynote sessions featuring Danish Playdead, creators of the multiple award-winning game INSIDE, and legendary Japanese designer Fumito Ueda, director of the critically acclaimed titles ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and recently released The Last Guardian, in an extensive talk about game design with David Polfeldt, managing director of Malmö’s own studio powerhouse Massive Entertainment.

For Nordic Game veterans, NG17 has all of the classic elements you’ve come to expect, updated and fine-tuned: MeetToMatch for effective business planning, the Expo to widen your horizons, networking events and parties galore to reconnect with old friends and make lots of new ones, the Nordic Game Awards to celebrate our best and brightest, and our ever popular gala dinner and complimentary lunches to keep your batteries at full charge.

No Nordic Game would be complete though without exploring a few new directions. We’re looking forward to introducing you to our very first Discovery Day (on Friday), and to hosting the debut finals of our multi-venue, multi-national Discovery Contest – a new baby of ours which we hope will only grow bigger, better and stronger in the coming months and years.

So we hope you are ready to listen, talk, learn, share, build, connect, evolve, inspire, laugh, drink, eat, joke, be serious, have fun, be tired, but also be happy, and that you’ll enjoy NG17 as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.

Thank you for joining us, and may you and your business prosper!
