Initial NG19 speaker line-up announced
Wednesday, 22 May will mark the beginning of sixteenth edition of the Nordic Game conference. Developer legend Warren Spector (https://nordicgame.com/warren-spector-announced-first-ng19-speaker) has already been announced as a keynote speaker at the annual three-day event, but the roster continues to build as new and exciting names are revealed daily.
“We’re still in the early days of announcing speakers for Nordic Game 2019,” says NG19 program director Jacob Riis. “But I can already say that we’ll have a superb line-up ready come May. As with previous editions, we have a clear vision and ambition for the Nordic Game speaker program; one that delivers content and knowledge to the audience in varied forms, and from as many perspectives as possible – not only the industry establishment. So it’s a real pleasure to reveal four of our latest speaker entries right here, to give people a taste of what’s in store for NG19 when they join us in Malmö this May.”
