What is Speed Game Dating?

The main goal: introduce developers to publishers. For publishers, it is a great opportunity to see some of the conference’s projects.
Benefits for Publishers
- 20 productive meetings in one hour
- Quality pre-selected game projects (mobile or desktop)

3 minutes is enough to understand if a game is relevant for publisher’s portfolio or not. If they will be interested — you can continue a conversation within the conference.
Benefits for Developers
