This was a record-breaking edition of the Digital Dragons Conference. Kraków was visited by 2500 guests, representing 870 companies from 51 countries from all over the world.
We want the Polish industry to take an increasingly important spot on Europe’s and the world’s gamedev map. This is why we try to ensure that the conference brings together communities from all over the world, the makers of the biggest games and independent titles, people specializing in business and creative – all so this exchange of knowledge, information and experience is as comprehensive as possible. We are happy with the increasing popularity of the Digital Dragons brand because it proves that all the activities undertaken by the Krakow Technology Park for the gaming sector are hitting their mark and receiving acclaim from our audiences. But we do not forget to listen to the industry, scan for its needs and devleop the most important elements.

Business and knowledge
This year, indie creators receive an additional, unplanned award given by Techland. A day earlier during the Digital Dragons Awards gala, the makers of Dying Light 2: Stay Human received a material prize. The technical partner of the Digital Dragons Conference, AMD, funded a desktop worth over 60 000 PLN. This very desktop was ultimately given by Techland to a indie studio of their choosing – the lucky winners ended up being SandmanTeam, the makers of Through the Nightmares
Last year I joined KTP’s board during the Digital Dragons conference and it was the first event I took part in. I am very happy that a year later I can witness another grand success of this initiative. I would like to thank all partners, sponsors, the Małopolska Voivodeship for the many years of cooperation and for their understanding of the importance of this industry for the continued development of our region, and to the City of Kraków for their support in organizing this event. I would also like to extend my incredible gratitude to everyone preparing Digital Dragons – it’s their passion, energy and professionalism that ensure this event’s success.
