Over 2000 people from over 40 countries participated in the Digital Dragons conference organised by the Kraków Technology Park (KPT) in Kraków on 16–17 May 2022. Their number included game fans from the United States, Canada, South American countries, nearly entire Europe, and even locations as distant as the Republic of South Africa, Thailand, Japan, and the Philippines.
I believe it has been the best Digital Dragons we have ever made. This year’s conference exceeded our most daring expectations. We made a return to the ICE Kraków Congress Centre after two years of organising the event online. We also stood up against the new reality we all live in from the outbreak of the war against Ukraine. Organisation of the conference at such a difficult time was a profound challenge for all of us. Yet the game dev people showed us very clearly how important Kraków has become for them and how very important the Digital Dragons are for the sector. And we are profoundly grateful to them for that.

It is a great joy for us to see the game development sector returning to Kraków despite the long break. This year we have again been supported by the Małopolska Region and the Municipality of Kraków. We hope it is a new opening also to new options for cooperation.

Of the 19 teams who presented themselves, I have selected five that I intend to start talking to. A perfect efficiency ratio indeed.
