Nordic Game Conference and Unite Nordic Join Forces

Malm?, Sweden– January 25, 2013– Unity Technologies and Nordic Game Resources have announced that they will be timing their Unite Nordic and Nordic Game Conference (NGC) events to take place at the same location during the week of May 20, 2013 to make attending both conferences easier for all attendees. Unite Nordic will take place May 21-22 and NGC will take place May 22-24 at Slagthuset in Malm?, Sweden, just 21 minutes by train from Copenhagen Airport.

The Nordic games development scene has grown over the last few years to become one of the strongest and most creative communities in the world. Both Unite Nordic and NGC offer learning and networking opportunities very valuable to the indie-heavy development scene in the area. Having both shows in the same location presents incredible opportunity for cross pollination of ideas, topics, and attendees at the two conferences. Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason will be on hand for the keynote to lend his perspective and knowledge on Unity technology and game development in general.
