So what is Copenhagen Games Festival?
It’s a celebration of games and game development. It aims to set the spotlight on The Danish Game Industry and games. The Festival turns Copenhagen into a hot spot for game designers, programmers, graphic artists, business experts, gamers and game interested locals and tourists. 2000 people fills Copenhagen with games, creativity, technology and innovation.

190 Danish Game companies, 735 full-time designers, programmers and innovative talents and a turnover increase of 196 % in the last six years, is reason enough to put the Danish Game Industry on the national and international map, both geographically, politically and in business terms. Copenhagen Games Festival is set up to do just that.
