It’s the must-attend event of the year!

The Northern Game Summit will be arranged in Kajaani, Finland. The city of Kajaani is located 550 kilometers north from Helsinki. The conference venue is a local cinema BioRex. This beautiful building is a celebration of Finnish architecture and has everything you need for a memorable two-day conference.
