HISTORY
Games Week Denmark was initiated as a concept the summer of 2015, under the name Copenhagen Games Festival. The need and idea of a big annual event had been in many peoples thoughts for some years, but it was not until IGDA and The Danish Producers Association agreed to join forces with their existing events Nordic Game Jam and Spilprisen that the idea began to shape up, all initiated by developers themselves in the two organizations. Soon after Interactive Denmark joined in with a Business & Development conference, and the basic program was ready. This leads on to the first Copenhagen Games Festival on April 6-10 2016 and now, with a change of name and a lift, opens on April 19th as Games Week Denmark. We hope to see you there!
