Exhibiting at the Gotland Game Conference is a privilege, not a right. The first thing you need to do is submit your project or thesis.

Every person at the conference must register online for a ticket and accept our code of conduct and anti-harrasment policy.

Help us bring in more audience by joining and sharing the Facebook event, follow CampusGotlandGAME on Instagram (#GGConf17) and YouTube, tweet at GotlandGAME and hashtag #GGConf17. And at all times; carry your Nintendo 3DS with Streetpass on.
