What is Speed Game Dating?

  • 3-minute one-on-one meetings between developers and publishers
  • The main goals: help developers find a potential publisher or investor; introduce publishers to the best projects and teams for further cooperation
  • SGD will be held online on May 14 in the form of live video meetings (pre-registration is required)

Benefits for Publishers

  • Access to quality pre-selected game projects (mobile and desktop)
  • You can preview games and influence their selection on Games Hub portal
  • 3 minutes is enough to understand if the game fits in with the publishers’ portfolio or not. If mutually interested, you can exchange contact details and continue your conversation at the conference

Benefits for Developers

  • You personally meet with publishers and investors that are interested in cooperation
  • Short meetings are the best way to practice pitching your project

NB! *The number of spots is limited, so make sure to submit beforehand.
