The Festival of Games is one of the largest professional game festivals in Europe, it sets the stage for the fast growing European game development market.
Europe is quickly becoming the new center for creativity in game development as more and more international publishers are looking for the innovations coming from European studios. Europe is also a big player in the field of applied games, as well as advergames. The Festival of Games harnesses Europe's creative power and gives an insight in the unique European approach. Industry, academic and business leaders share and combine their opinions and visions.
The Festival of Games consists of a main thought leader conference, workshops, a professional expo with a career fair and a serious connection. The event is a platform and a meeting point for the community that will come together at the Industry Award Gala, where the winner of the NLGD Game Development Rally will be rewarded with a prize with a total value of €20.000.
The Festival also targets the general public with events like a large urban game and a game music event in the city of Utrecht, Europe’s rising game development hub. Together with participants and spectators we will celebrate game culture like never before.
The NLGD Festival of Games takes place from 14 to 22 June 2008 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
