About us/Contact

SwissGames : Exporting Fun & Innovation Worldwide

SwissGames is an initiative to promote the Swiss games cluster at home and abroad. Under the umbrella of SwissGames, we organize or support Swiss participation in more than 20 events per year and help Swiss developers gain visibility, build relationships with the international games industry and access the global market.

Our most important SwissGames delegations visit Gamescom, GDC, Nordic Game Conference and Game Connection America and Europe. We also organize smaller delegations to events such as the BIG Festival in Sao Paulo or the Nasscom Game Developers Conference in Hyderabad. On request, we provide financial support for individual or collective representation at other events. We also support Swiss events – such as festivals, conferences, game jams – which share our desire to promote the Swiss game scene.

SwissGames is initiated by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. Our main partners are the Swiss Game Developers Association, the Swiss Chapter of the International Game Developers Association, Swissnex San Francisco, Zurich University of the Arts, HEAD-Geneva, ECAL and ETH Zurich.
