The conference will take place on March 1-2, and is powered by Digital Vikings
DevGAMM Gdańsk 2023 is the first conference that DevGAMM organizes in Poland. It will be held on March 1-2, at AmberExpo. DevGAMM Gdańsk will be done in collaboration with Digital Vikings, which was born out of an idea of matching indie developers with publishers and investors.
The reason why Gdańsk was chosen as a location is a huge number of Ukrainians who fled there because of war, and Belarusians who relocated. They are one of the representatives of the DevGAMM community. Therefore, DevGAMM organizes the conference that will help them to integrate into a local Polish community. Moreover, there were no such events in Gdańsk before. It has a beautiful Baltic Sea, tourist locations, and, more importantly, a gaming community.
The conference will gather game industry professionals for top-notch sessions from:
- Jon Carnage, Head of Cross Media, tinyBuild
- Henrique Olifiers, CEO, Bossa Studios
- Rami Ismail, Consultant
- Fawzi Mesmar, Game Designer / Author
- Alex Nichiporchik, CEO, tinyBuild
