Nordic Game 2017 Coming This May
While most of our readership is right here in the Good Ol’ U.S. of A., we do still have many international readers, including some from Sweden. Well… I know Henrix reads the site, anyway. But even if the rest of the Swedish gaming community doesn’t read the site (though I wish they would), I’m sure Henrix can just pass along the info to everyone else (I’m sure he knows them, personally). What info? That Nordic Game 2017 is coming to Malmö this May.
From the website:
Nordic Game 2017

Welcome to Nordic Game 2017: We’ll meet for knowledge, emotion, and business
The organisers of the fourteenth edition of the Nordic Game conference, taking place on 17-19 May 2017 in Malmö, Sweden, are at full swing preparing for this year’s show.
The Last Guardian creator meets The Division boss
More than thirty speakers for the program have already been revealed. “We’re presenting a great line-up of speakers for NG17”, says NG Program Director Jacob Riis. “From the much-anticipated one-on-one discussion between Japanese developer icon Fumito Ueda and Massive’s CEO David Polfelt, to more than 100 talks about VR, diversity, design, work culture, and a string of expert level sessions, there will be something for everyone”.
A new addition to the speaker program is the partnership with industry media network GamesIndustry.biz who will be curating a part of the program. http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2017-01-10-gamesindustry-biz-partners-with-nordic-game-conference
Discovery Day premiers
Formerly known as the Nordic Game Indie Day, the event organisers and partners believe that the time has come to leave the somewhat dividing and confusing “indie” appellation behind and focus on what brings developers together. Thus the new Discovery Day will still be a playful and fun experience, with a primary focus on the innovative and artful aspects of game development.
Created and curated in close cooperation with longtime partners Copenhagen Game Collective, Nordic Game Discovery Day will be held as the last day of NG17, namely Friday, 19 May. Open to all NG17 conference pass holders, stand-alone Discovery Day & Showcase tickets are available for only 59 EUR.
NG17 is much more
Besides these elements, NG17 will contain all the features which makes the event truly Nordic Game such as the Gala Dinner, Nordic Game Awards, and the renowned Nordic party. And parallel to this, the MeetToMatch meeting and matchmaking system will guarantee a nice breeding ground for business during the conference. All this, and of course, much, much more 🙂
In the coming weeks, loads of exciting details regarding NG17 will be revealed at nordicgame.com.
Nordic Game 2017 will be held on 17-19 May in the “Slagthuset” venue in Malmö, Sweden, just 21 minutes by train from Copenhagen Airport.
