admitad always continues to explore horizons and was pleased to visit the 12th edition of White Nights Conference in the heart of Eastern Europe – beautiful Prague. The White Nights Conference is an international cross-platform business conference for game industry. The White Nights events attract influential game industry professionals and developers. Every year more than 4,000 visitors all together attend the conference.
White Nights Prague is an international business conference that gathers game industry professionals from all over the world, including a very special blend of developers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, Germany and more.The unique thing about The White Nights Conference is that it is organized by Nevosoft, a St. Petersburg based casual game developer and publisher.
The event features a broad conference program that includes three lecture tracks , one of which held technical presentations designed for programmers, game designers and artists. Such industry-leading companies as King, Warner Bros., Supercell, Rovio, Wooga, Chillingo, Facebook, Big Fish, DeNA, Google, Microsoft, G5, Mail.Ru and many others have already attended the Conference. In addition, our admitad team got a chance to see “live” over 70 games showcased at the Developer Exhibition, including a special VR-section.
