Introducing Finnish Games Week 2024

5 Days of Games Industry Excellence

September 30 – October 4

Meet Finnish Game Week, a week-long series of game industry events taking place in Helsinki, and powered at its core by a mighty conference trilogy: Leadership Day by IGDA Finland, W Love Games, and – spoiler alert – Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki.

The action doesn’t stop there, and you can expect fringe event activity such as the World Game Developer Awards and our very own Top 50 Game Makers executive dinner to roll into the mix – more to follow on this.

By concentrating all events into the week we can focus on bringing together indies, developers, publishers, investors, representatives from every sector of the industry, students and like-minded creatives looking to dive into all aspects of the business of games, across all formats – from the making to the marketing, launch to live ops, whilst also exploring the topics of leadership, teamwork, business development, and more.

And, of course, it’s also all about the connections. The structure and ethos of the content maximises the opportunities for all involved, whether that’s developers getting to meet investors, or publishers discovering new talent to bring onboard – at its essence, Finnish Games Week is designed to educate, certainly, but also to promote and unite, bringing potential partners together within a unique, dedicated week-long session of back-to-back conferencing.
