Mark your calendars for May 29th + 30th, when representatives of the gaming industry from the wider region, as well as the entire Europe, will once again connect in Belgrade for knowledge transfer and insights into the future of our fast-growing sector.

The third edition of Serbia’s largest international conference dedicated to game development awaits you on May 29th and 30th!

FTW! is not your usual game dev conference. Without the usual 'expo' part or the pricey tickets, the focus is primarily on the exchange of knowledge and experience, connecting all relevant actors of the industry, as well as connecting our region with European leaders. In addition to representatives of the European Game Developers Federation and Video Games Europe, the conference will be attended by prominent keynote speakers, a large number of domestic and regional industry leaders, as well as representatives of the academic sector and decision makers. Among the companies that are involved in the organization of the event and that will have their representatives in the program are Google (Gamecamp), Epic Games and 3 Lateral, Outfit7, as well as numerous other companies and organizations from the domestic and regional ecosystem of video games.

If your application is approved, you will have the opportunity, like all other delegates, to follow the complete conference program for free. Applications are open for professionals from Serbia (who are not part of the SGA network), but for all those from the wider region and the entire of Europe who will recognize the value of participating in such an event.

Join the conversation about the future of local, regional and European gaming, gain new knowledge and insights and - connect with industry leaders!
