Engage yourself in the most complete Game Wave Festival, where business, learning, and enjoyment merge!
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The Game Wave Festival is an international event taking place for the second year in a row from September 27th to October 2nd in Tallinn, Estonia at Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel. The first three days of six-day-event are dedicated to the game jam.
The Game Wave Festival is a business, education and entertainment event for the gaming industry professionals. It first took place with great success in September 2021 in Jūrmala, Latvia attracting participants from 25 countries.
“Game Wave Festival is an expressive way to celebrate glorious game development heritage, culture and traditions, meet new and old faces, and have fun. It is professional, oriented to have serious business talks, and cozy, to make friends with almost all attendees. I am happy to welcome all of you to the 2nd Game Wave Festival!” — Ints Viksna, Chairman of Board at Latvian Technological center.
The festival is mainly B2B, however, it is designed to avoid the “stiffness” these types of events sometimes have. Game Wave Festival attempts to capture the fun and relaxed ambiance we’ve experienced in other global and regional game events. GWF is large enough to get an overview of the main tendencies in the Nordic and Baltic region, and small enough to make friends with all participants – The friendships you will make in GWF, will follow you all your life.
Main event and B2Match
  • 30.09. – 02.10. The Main Event: Conference, workshops, expo, pitching competitions, business meetings and game jam final presentation.
  • The conference and interactive events are divided into 5 tracks: General, Art (visual, audial, haptics), Unreal Engine, XR and Board Games.
  • The online matchmaking platform is available for all participants all 6 days, and the meetings can also be booked on-site. Registered members of the matchmaking will be able to participate both on-site and online.
  • GWF uses the B2Match meeting and event management platform that works both on web browsers and mobile devices. This platform also handles video calls and conference streaming, so all functionality needed by the participants is neatly in one place.
  • There will be a private Business area for business ticket holders in Tallink’s Fidel Bar with a nice view of the old town.
The first three days of the six-day-event are dedicated to the game jam
Awesome game jam runs from September 27th to 29th. The game jam’s theme and diversifiers of the jam will be decided by the jam sponsors. However, the game jam does not end on the 3rd day, instead, the final ceremony is on the 6th day of GWF. This is by design so that the teams can improve their games by attending workshops and even pitch them in and get feedback in our “Early stage games mentor pitch”.
Three unique game pitching opportunities:
  • 1 to 1 board games author and publisher pitch in a private, closed space, where publishers can take their time to test the game and converse with the authors.
  • Early stage mentor pitch for anyone not ready for any other pitches, but still willing to train, test their prototype and get feedback. Jammers are welcome.
  • Nordic Game Discovery Contest Baltic semi-finals where developers from Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can showcase their games to publishers and industry experts and compete for a place in the finals.
Three special event parties, including Business Afterparty and Pool party
  • The Business Party (29.09.2022) will be available for organizers, speakers, partners and business ticket holders only.
  • The Pool party (30.09.2022) will be available for organizers, speakers, partners, business ticket holders only and pool party ticket holders. There will be access to the pool area, sauna, hot tubs and a quieter area by the bar.
  • The Afterparty (01.10.2022) will be available for almost everyone (except for student ticket holders). It will feature Marioke, a feast table and a quieter area for business conversations.
The 3 day expo for game companies,  art, technology & education
The expo will be of interest to anyone who has a professional or a hobby curiosity about topics related to game companies, art, technology and education. Learning from last year’s success and good feedback, GWF will place staff members to guard the hall, so that the expo participants are not tied down at their booths for 3 days.

PRAGMATIC PLAY PARTNERS WITH ULTRAMARATHON RUNNER FOR SICILY CHARITY EVENT
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the iGaming industry, has teamed up with Maltese athlete Steve Sammut Nurminen (MovewithSteve) as he looks to complete an incredible challenge, running 365km across Sicily in aid of the charity Dr Klown. 

Steve aims to raise €10,000 for the non-governmental organisation (NGO), which provides a unique service to hospitalised children in Malta and Gozo. Dr Klown supplies clown doctors, that are artistically and psychologically trained to entertain children in hospitals, where the volunteers amuse kids and produce smiles and laughter to those in need. 

The incredible running challenge is sponsored by Pragmatic Play, who will be supporting Steve and his experienced team, as he prepares for the run from Syracuse to Trapani at the height of summer in a time frame of just two and a half days.  

Pragmatic Play has partnered with Steve in his journey as the shared ethos and dedication is clear between the two, with both taking major leaps in their respective fields through drive, dedication and hard work, which are hallmarks of both the supplier’s business approach and Steve’s ultramarathon events. 

Julian Jarvis, CEO at Pragmatic Play, said: “Steve is well known in the Maltese community for his herculean feats of endurance running and we’re very proud to be able to support him in his latest astounding effort– running a 365km ultramarathon!  

“The work that Dr Klown does in Malta is extremely important, and we’re humbled we can support Steve in his quest to raise as much money for them as possible.” 

Steve Sammut Nurminen added: “It is a hugely exciting challenge and one that will push me to the limit as I embark on my most ambitious run to date, looking to raise significant funds for Dr Klown to assist the incredible work they do. 

“Pragmatic Play’s CSR programme contributes to charities and causes all over Malta and beyond, and I’m very pleased to be working with them to raise money for a fantastic charity.”
