About

The White Nights Conference is a leading B2B event for the game industry in Europe. It gathers key companies from European countries, Russia & CIS, Asia, and the US - over 4,500 attendees per year. The main reason to attend the White Nights events - according to the visitors' feedback - is an opportunity to meet decision-makers face-to-face. You can have direct communication with any conference attendee with the help of the White Nights Business Assistant, our own matchmaking system.

Also, we hold an exclusive event - White Nights CEO Summit Barcelona - in one of the most attractive European locations. The event is for top managers from game industry only.

White Nights CEO Summit Barcelona – May 13-14, 2019
White Nights St. Petersburg – June 19-20, 2019
White Nights Moscow – October 16-17, 2019
White Nights Berlin – February 2020

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.
