Digital Dragons in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre!
On the 21st and 22nd of May, Krakow will once again become the world capital of video games. This is all thanks to the 7th edition of the Digital Dragons conference – the most representative and largest business conference in Central Europe, addressed to the representatives of the video games industry. Gamers can count on a diverse programme. In addition to a series of lectures, workshops and discussion panels, a number of contests and networking meetings are also planned, mainly addressed to representatives of start-ups and students. The list of speakers will feature representatives of leading Polish game studios, as well as renowned international experts. There will be no shortage of new and upcoming products presented at specially prepared exhibition stands.
As every year, the Digital Dragons Awards for the best games will also be presented. The winners will be selected in six categories: Best Polish Game of 2017, Best Polish Game Design of 2017, Best Polish Game Art of 2017, Best Polish Soundtrack of 2017, Best Polish Mobile Game of 2017 and Best Foreign Game of 2017. This year, a great emphasis was also placed on cooperation with universities by organising the Students Talent Show – a nationwide competition addressed to students creating computer games. The mission of Digital Dragons is to widely promote the Polish gaming industry, one of the most intensively developing sectors of the digital entertainment industry. The conference has been organized since 2012 by the Krakow Technology Park.
The last edition in 2017 was attended by 1,500 people – producers, game publishers, industry and business media, as well as representatives of capital funds and academia from nearly 40 countries. Foreign guests accounted for about 25% of all participants. You can find out more about the event at www.digitaldragons.pl.
