Game Wave Festival changes the dates to host the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Grand Finals


The Game Wave Festival (GWF) announced new dates for the event. It will be happening November 28-29 in Tallinn, Estonia at Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel. In addition to new dates, Game Wave Festival is proud to host Nordic Game Discovery Contest Baltic Semi-finals leading up to NGDC Grand Finals.

“We have changed the dates for the conference because we got a unique opportunity to host NGDC Season VI: Special Qualifier and the NGDC Grand Finals for the first time in the Baltic region” — says Ints Viksna, Chairman of the Board at Latvian Technological center.

The Game Wave Festival is a business, education and entertainment event for the gaming industry professionals. It first took place with great success in September 2021 in Jūrmala, Latvia, and was attended by more than 270 participants from 25 countries. 

The festival is mainly B2B, however, it is designed to avoid the “stiffness” these types of events sometimes have by capturing the fun and relaxed ambiance. GWF is large enough to get an overview of the main tendencies in the Nordic and Baltic region, and small enough to make friends with all participants – The friendships you will make in GWF, will follow you all your life. 

Join The Game Wave Festival to experience the following:

  • Plenty of useful workshops, game company, art, technology & education expo, pitching opportunities and business meetings.
  • The conference and interactive events are divided in 5 tracks: General, Art (visual, audial, haptics), Unreal Engine and XR.
