About

The White Nights Conference is an international business conference for game industry with the content across mobile, PC, console, web, AR and VR. The White Nights events attract influential game industry professionals and developers and take place four times a year in February (Prague), in April (Cyprus), in June (St. Petersburg) and in October (Moscow). Every year more than 4,000 visitors all together attend the conference.

White Nights Prague will take place on February 13-14, 2018.
White Nights CEO Summit will take place in Cyprus on April 26-27, 2018.
White Nights St. Petersburg will take place on June 28-29, 2018.
White Nights Moscow will take place on October 16-17, 2018.

Industry-leading companies like King, Obsidian, Supercell, Rovio, Bandai Namco, Big Fish, Wargaming, Playrix, Pixonic, Facebook, Google and many others have already attended.

The agenda includes two 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 it doesn't start early in the morning which helps developers to have a more productive business day.

The White Nights Conference is organized by Nevosoft, a St. Petersburg based casual game developer and publisher.
