SGA announces the international conference For the Win! – a new meeting point for actors of the European gaming industry

Under the slogan Building exceptional game industry ecosystems, the conference will bring together almost 200 actors from the local, regional and European video game development industry in Belgrade on April 8, and offer an exciting program and networking opportunities, in as many as three locations! The local game dev community will be introduced to speakers from leading global companies such as Google, Outfit7, Epic Games, Focus Entertainment, Fingersoft, Playrix and others.

For the Win!: Building exceptional game industry ecosystems is not a usual gaming conference. It is a highly international event that brings together various actors, companies and ecosystem organizations, with the idea of ​​exchanging experiences and good practices, inspiring colleagues and influencing decision makers, in order to enable the best possible development of the local gaming ecosystem, and realize its full potential.

The all-day program – which will be held at the Yugoslav Film Archives (Kinoteka) and Bitef Theater, as well as other informal spaces in downtown Belgrade – will have its distinct stakeholder and b2b components. The first part of the program will present numerous European associations (Italy, Sweden, France, Romania and others, as well as the EGDF), and transfer their own practices of building successful frameworks for gaming ecosystem development, and various models of cooperation with the government, civil society and the market economy.

The B2B part of the program will be evenly dedicdated to the “core” or PC side of things (at the “Makavejev” hall of Kinoteka), while the famous Gamecamp community, which gathers over 100 studios from Southeast Europe, will present its program for mobile studios in a separate space. Lectures, panels and moderated Q&A sessions await us, with many opportunities for networking and matchmaking.

In the evening part of the program, the audience will have a chance to see the premiere of the SGA Annual Industry Report for 2021, which will make the SGA one of the most agile associations when it comes to publishing annual research on the state of the domestic industry. Keynote lectures by the representatives of Epic Games, Outfit7 and Google will follow, rounding up the day with a party for conference delegates in one of Belgrade’s clubs.


A more detailed program of the conference will be published on March 25, while it is important to emphasize that attending the event is possible only by invitation, and is completely free for participants. The main partners of the conference are USAID, ICT Hub, Unreal Engine (Epic Games), Playrix.rs, Gamecamp, SwissEP, the French Institute, Goethe-Institut and the Embassies of Sweden and Finland, while the main media sponsor is Netokracija.
