Meet Finnish Games Week, a week-long series of games industry events taking place in Helsinki, and powered at its core by a mighty conference trilogy: Leadership Day by IGDA Finland, W Love Games, and – spoiler alert – Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki.

The action doesn’t stop there, and you can expect fringe event activity such as the World Game Developer Awards and our very own Top 50 Game Makers executive dinner to roll into the mix – more to follow on this.

By concentrating all events into the week we can focus on bringing students, indies, developers, publishers, investors and representatives from every sector of the industry together at the same time to learn, share insights and network.

The structure and ethos of the content maximises the opportunities for all involved. Whether it’s developers getting to meet investors or publishers discovering new talent to bring onboard – at its essence, Finnish Games Week is designed to educate, promote and unite, bringing potential partners together within a unique, dedicated week-long session of back-to-back conferencing.
