European Games BizDev Gathering is a non-profit two days long online event focused on supporting European game developers during challenging times of the ongoing global crisis.

To help European game developers to get their projects (on all platforms) in front of investors and publishers and find suitable matches. Let's get some deals done.

For all game developers / studios with headquarters in Europe (all of Europe, including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus & Turkey) with a project or company ready for pitching to investors and / or publishers. We do love companies offering services and unburden the production, but this time the initiative is focusing exclusively on game development studios. If you focus on co-dev that's fine too. Please note that the organizers can refuse access to this event and the MeetToMatch platform without prior notice, for customers that are not meeting the requirements for this ticket.

It will take place online from 13th to 14th of May 2020 (from 9:00AM - 9:00PM CET) while using MeetToMatch as a platform for pitching and meetings.

This is an online event for matchmaking only. There are no talks or panels during the EGBG.

European Games BizDev Gathering is organized by the joint EGDF, rcp and Reboot initiative while supported by some of their key European partners.

The European Games Developer Federation (EGDF) represents European game developers on a European level. It helps to build up policies that support the growth of the European game developer studios and foster the development of the entire digital ecosystem in Europe. Together with its member associations, EGDF represents more than 2 000 game developer studios with more than 25.000 employees. “EGDF is doing important work for our industry for more than a decade. Most of the time it happens in the maze of Brussels while seeming quite abstract. In this moment of immense challenges, we gladly step forward and do something tangible for the games industry in Europe. Let ́s get some deals done and make sure no one gets left behind” said Hendrik Lesser, President of EGDF. More you can find here
