Organized by Shareplay, Interactive Denmark, and us, NordicGameBits, Games Business 2015 was Denmark’s largest games industry conference for all Nordic game developers. Today, we look back at the conference, and share some of the best insights.
On Monday December 7th at 12:30, industry professionals from Denmark and the rest of the Nordic were gathered in “The House of Music” in Aalborg, Denmark, as the Games Business 2015 conference was about to kick off. In total, more than 100 people attended the conference, which saw both Ex-King.com “Game Guru” Tommy Palm and Interceptor Entertainment CEO, Frederik Schreiber take the scene, among many other great speakers.
The day was split into a conference section with 8 fantastic speakers taking the scene, and a networking session with beer, hotdogs, and an opportunity to mingle with the other attendees.
Throughout the conference and the following networking session, the attendees and speakers discussed everything from future monetization strategies to new platforms such as VR, and the emerging markets outside Europe / US.
And for everyone who would like to recap what went down at conference, or for those who didn’t get to attend this year, several of the speakers have agreed to share their speaker slides. These speakers are: Mihai Gheza (and the tool he showed in the browser), Frederik Schreiber, Christine Thaarup, Rune Drewsen, and Steffen Kabbelgaard. So please give them a “thanks” for that next time you see them!
Several giveaways also took place during Games Business 2015, one of which included a chance to win a $1,500 Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016 VIP ticket. The lucky winner (which was randomly drawn) of the ticket ended up being Asger Rasmussen from Aarhus, Denmark. Once again, a huge congratulations to him!
The other giveaway was for 2 x €400 Unity Unite 2016 tickets. All attendees should have already received an e-mail about how to signup for the competition to win these tickets.
Games Business started in Aalborg four years ago but has ever since its first year been changing and customizing the format of the event based on feedback from the attendees – something that finally paid off in the 2015 edition, which saw approximately 25% more attendees than in 2014.
And this growth is something that the organizing team hopes to be able to continue in the 2016 edition of the conference.
