About

The White Nights Games Conference is an international cross-platform game development and marketing conference. The White Nights events attract influential game industry professionals and developers and take place three times a year in February (Helsinki), in June (St. Petersburg) and in October (Moscow). Every year more than 4,000 visitors all together attend the conference.

White Nights Helsinki will take place on February 11-12, 2016.
White Nights St. Petersburg will take place on June 28-29, 2016.

The agenda includes three atmospheric networking parties: the welcome pre-party on the day preceding the event and an all night party after the first day. The unique thing about this conference is that its business hours are from 2pm till 9 pm.

You must have a valid Russian visa to enter the country.

To apply for a Russian visa you will need to obtain a visa invitation letter. We can help you get one as we work with an authorized travel agency.
To receive a visa invitation letter, please follow the steps:

1 Pay the $30-fee
2 Fill out the application form
3 E-mail at wnconf@nevosoft.com

It will take up to three working days to get an invitation letter.

Please keep in mind that an invitation letter is NOT a visa - you'll have to apply to the Russian embassy. So please plan accordingly. You don't need a hard copy of an invitation letter to apply for a tourist visa.
