An exceptional, four-day-long edition of the Digital Dragons ended last Friday. 900 participants, 1100 businesses, 77 speakers, and 66 independent games in the Indie Showcase competition are only some data worth boasting.
This round has been an experiment from the start. Just like any organiser, we were faced with difficult decisions, and had to take up a challenge that nobody expected. However, it is with great pleasure that I can say that the Digital Dragons team stood up to the task perfectly, and prepared an event that was different than the previous ones had been yet satisfying the current needs of the game dev sector.
Wojciech Przybylski, CEO of the KPT
We are very keen on maintaining the functionalities that our participants find important and that are hallmarks of our event. That is why we organised the Expo Zone with 11 virtual stands of the partners, and 66 stands with indie games selected from among over 200 projects. Moreover, we provided space for recruiters, and 55 jobs in the sector to be filled were advertised.
Anna Krampus, Manager of the Games Sector Support Team
It was certainly a different event from the ones we used to know, yet it certainly helped us gather precious experience. In this way we are now furnished with new skills for organising the following editions, irrespective of the reality in which they will be held. We all very much hope that we will meet in Kraków next year, for what our participants missed most is precisely the opportunity of direct contact and talking face-to-face.
