On July 11, the "Gaming Industry" conference will be held in St. Petersburg

In a month, with the support of App2Top, a business conference titled “Gaming Industry” (GIC) will debut in Russia’s northern capital. Among the participants are Cyberia Nova, HeroCraft, “K-D Lab Association”, Overmobile, and others.

The event will take place at the Cosmos Hotel (formerly "Pribaltiyskaya"). The name is symbolic. In the early 2000s, the legendary KRI, the first Russian conference dedicated to game development, was held annually at the Cosmos Hotel in Moscow.

The “Gaming Industry” conference will run for one day across two tracks. Around 30 lectures are planned, covering various aspects of game development, publishing, and promotion in the modern economic environment.

App2Top will detail the program in future publications dedicated to GIC. However, it is noteworthy that there will be presentations on working with Steam, releasing remastered classics, and community management.

In addition to the lecture section, the event will feature an expo section with booths from leaders of the Russian IT market. It has already been announced that “Yandex Games,” “VK Games,” and “Odnoklassniki” will participate.

Additionally, an indie project exhibition will be held as part of GIC. Developers will have the opportunity to personally showcase their projects to event guests, receive feedback from experts and speakers, and network with each other.

The event will culminate in a large-scale party, providing an informal setting to interact with other “Gaming Industry” participants.

Preliminary data suggests that about 500 participants are expected to attend GIC. Attendees will be able to schedule meetings with guests in advance through the meeting system, which will open closer to the event on July 2.
