International Gamedev Conference DevGAMM Heading to Gdansk, Poland

DevGAMM Gdansk

DevGAMM Gdansk 2023 is the first conference that DevGAMM is organizing in Poland for its 2023 edition, we now have the event dates. DevGAMM Gdansk 2023 will be held on March 1-2, 2023, at AmberExpo and it will be hosted in collaboration with Digital Vikings which was born out of an idea of matching indie developers with publishers and investors. This year, Gdansk was chosen for the venue of the event because a lot of Ukrainians have fled there because of the ongoing war along with Belarusians.

They are one of the representatives of the DevGAMM conference, which was one of the primary reasons behind changing the venue of the event. DevGAMM gives them a chance to help to integrate into the local Polish community because, before this, there were no such events in Gdansk. The city of Gdansk has a beautiful Baltic Sea, tourist locations, and a gaming community that is pretty active in the scene. The conference will gather game industry professionals for different sessions.
