The hybrid event Connecting on-site with online

Hybrid GIC 2021 aims to meet the needs of those not fond of online events, with ones that cannot or do not want to travel. Like always, being on the frontier of industry events, we will be looking for new solutions for new times.

MeetToMatch for the best meetings

The GIC offers the best B2B opportunities to reach industry professionals from Poland and most of Central and Eastern Europe. The best available meeting system MeetToMatch allows for well-organized sessions with just the proper business partners you are looking for. While offering the most premium meeting system, we humbly keep this as pay what you like, with the choice of zero RECOMMENDED for every indie that needs our support.

Teaching event with advanced talks

At the GIC we believe in the learning value of talks and we think that the content of presentations and meetings is more important than big names. Due to our unique marking of the presentation difficulty level (1 - basic, 2 - intermediate, 3 - advanced), we are looking for talks that will provide useful insight even to developers with years of experience. Speaker candidates have to go through an advanced and rigorous submission and review system, while our Advisory Board is working hard to verify the potential value of every talk.

And it pays off: the GIC is seen as a major teaching event with talks of only the best quality.

CEEGA

Central & Eastern European Game Awards is a new initiative to recognize and promote the best video games from this region yearly. The CEE region is big and important and yet often underseen part of the global gaming industry. The region totals over 1000 game development studios, over 25000 people producing games and many interesting success stories.

Central & Eastern European Game Awards 2020 announcement is to be declared.

Polish Game Industry

as seen on the Poznań Game Arena and Game Industry Conference

The Game Industry Conference takes place alongside the Poznan Game Arena, one of the most important and largest game expos in Europe. Over 79 300 visitors enjoy the show by testing games and hardware from more than 220 expositors.

The two events are the best place to meet most of the people from the Polish Game Industry. There are already more than 440 studios and 9 710 people working in games development in Poland. And if you include all the additional services, such as outsourcing, Q&A, localization, publishing and distribution, this number will surely double in its size.
