About

The White Nights Conference is an international business conference for game industry. The White Nights events attract influential game industry professionals and developers and take place three times a year in February (Prague), 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 St. Petersburg will take place on June 20-21, 2018.
White Nights Moscow will take place on October 9-10, 2018.

Industry-leading companies like King, Warner Bros., Supercell, Rovio, Wooga, Chillingo, Facebook, Big Fish, DeNA, Google, Microsoft, G5, Mail.Ru 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.
