Event organizers have announced they are initiating "key improvements" for the 2008 Nordic Game conference based on constructive feedback received following prior incarnations of the event, which takes place annually in Malmö, Sweeden.
Nordic Game 2008 is set to take place in May of 2008, with fewer presentations in favor of an emphasis on developer-oriented professional workshops and panel discussions. Delegates will be inspired by keynote guests, with content drawn both from within and outside of the games industry.
Additionally, event organizers announced they are also planning major changes to the annual Nordic recruitment event. Nordic Game Career Expo 2008 will have a separate date, the day after the Nordic Game conference, and offer a special program aimed at newly-graduated students and other academics looking for work in the industry. Admission will be free for qualified students and other academics.
The Nordic Game Program has also announced the appointment of Tom Felices as event director, who has worked with the event for the past three years. Felices will assume responsibility for the annual Nordic Game event and the organization's career expo, in addition to Nordic Game activities at GDC, GC Leipzig and other events worldwide.
