Growing Games Celebration 2016

December 15 is the final showdown of Growing Games 2016 - the day we celebrate the Danish game industry!

 

The venue is at capacity. We're no longer accepting sign ups, but there is a waiting list in place. If you didnt get a spot in time, you can sign up for the waiting list below.

We end off the year by raising the stakes. Denmark isn’t big enough for all you great game studios. But it’s boom or bust on the global stage, where ambition, international perspective and commercial success go hand-in-hand, so join us for this inspirational day in Copenhagen.

We are excited to announce Finnish Mariina Hallikainen as a keynote speaker. She is CEO of Colossal Order, who developed the hugely successful PC game Cities: Skylines released March 2015. She will share her story and bring her perspective and inspiration to how Danish game studios can reach success globally. More speakers will be announced as we move closer to the date, so stay tuned.

You will also see five ambitious studios competing in a pitch competition to win the glorious Growing Games Global Award. An experienced jury will pick the winner and you will have a chance to discuss the key steps to commercial success in the games industry with the members of the jury.

All in all, the day will offer you inspiring keynotes, exciting pitches, interesting discussions and a chance to network over a glass of champagne as we wish each other a merry x-mas and a happy new year.

So come and celebrate with us and be celebrated!
