Post-Event: MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit Tallinn (hybrid edition), the first of its kind

The third edition of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit took place on the 6th of August in Tallinn and has organized under special circumstances. Due to the travel restrictions, which change weekly in Europe among the states, we had to switch to a hybrid conference.

The hybrid format allowed the speakers and moderators who were restricted from traveling to attend the conference with the help of streaming technologies.

Thanks to this quick fix, the conference has once again been confirmed as the only quality conference in the region that gathers a high number of important delegates and provides quality content about the Baltic and Scandinavian region.

The agenda of the conference included several panel discussions, a fireside chat, several networking opportunities, and last but not least the second edition of the BSG Awards (Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards) which rewarded the top 36 companies from the Baltic Sea region for their hard work.

With this occasion, we would like to thank the supporting sponsors of the unique boutique-style conference and the praises go to:

The attending delegates had the unique opportunity to hear the recent updates and enjoy network sessions with some of the leading names of the industry. You can find the full list of speakers below at the end of the press release!

The audio recordings of the panel discussions and videos will are available for European Gaming PREMIUM Members.

We are navigating uncharted waters, but it is very important to motivate ourselves that we have already gone through a hard road to get here. We owe ourselves not to give up and to continue our path. It was very hard to decide if we will host the 2020 edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, but having the attention of so many companies that were interested to attend from the region, we had to do it. We of course were limited in terms of size by the local law, however, we are happy to say that at least some of the Baltic industry’s like-minded peers have had the occasion of shaking hands and hugging each other. Special thanks to our MARE BALTICUM Ambassador Andrius Gabnys and Jovita Gabnienė, our TECH Conference Ambassador in the Baltics, for helping us by being on the ground in Tallinn. MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit is an awesome platform that grows year by year and we are thankful to have this opportunity to meet so many great people each year. We are coming back next year as well and we will keep coming back yearly!” stated Zoltan Tuendik, Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events (part of Hipther Agency)
