Kraków Technology Park has just announced the dates for the Digital Dragons 2021. This year the event will be held in three separate parts: the Indie Celebration, the Business Meet Up, and the Digital Dragons Conference. The Indie Games Competition has already opened for submissions.
Don’t they say third time lucky? After the two editions in 2020, we join forces with the best European game industry events, and we all together invite you to the Indie Celebration 2021. This year, there is more than just a competition, as there is also a presentation of the best indie games our partners from Croatia and Ukraine have selected. The players will have over 100 titles to choose from!
Maria Błędowska, Indie Celebration coordinator
We cannot meet in Kraków, yet this does not mean that developers and investors are not looking for new contacts. Business Meet Up is an opportunity to develop business in this uncertain period. The free matchmaking platform will allow partners from all over the world to meet virtually.
Sonia Wojciechowska, Business Meet Up coordinator
We have tried to organise this year's edition in such a way that all representatives of the industry could be present at the Digital Dragons 2021. We are establishing close links with other conferences in Central and Eastern Europe, and cooperating to make the offer more attractive. The games industry knows no borders, and the online edition of the three events allows us actually to bypass the geographical ones. Although we all miss live meetings, I hope that our proposal will meet with a great interest of the industry. Please let me also remind you that all the events are available free of charge.
