When 2 + 1 = 4. Two Conferences, One Trip: Visit 4C Straight After XR Connects

When 2 + 1 = 4. Two Conferences, One Trip: Visit 4C Straight After XR Connects

XR Connects Helsinki will be unmissable for games industry networking and expert insider knowledge later this month. But when our event stops on Thursday September 20, you don't have to; take a trip a few miles east and you'll be very welcome at the 4C conference in St Petersburg, Russia.


Proud Partners

Steel Media - the company behind and - is proud to be media partners of the two-day event, which promises to foresee (see the relevance of the title now?) the future of gaming in the company of some of the world’s leading videogame specialists.

Described as ‘a melting pot’, it’s a place where veteran developers mingle with innovative newcomers, and east meets west, across a number of diverse seminars with topics ranging from art and game design to business, marketing, leadership skills and more.

The programme includes speakers from Paradox, Ubisoft, Unity, Guerrilla, Riot Games, Pinewood Studios, Microsoft, Google, EA, Epic, Fingersoft, Reforged and of course, Wargaming. There are five track rooms plus a workshop room running during the conference.

Co-organized by Wargaming and West Game Development Forum, this year's conference will be held on September 22–23, at the Park Inn Pribaltiyskaya Hotel, St. Petersburg, Russia.


The Party Carries On!

And we’ll be there! If you haven’t had enough of us at XR Connects, you’ll be able to carry on the conversation with three of Steel Media’s finest at 4C. St Petersburg is just three hours by train from Helsinki, so do come along and join us. (Citizens of some countries, including the UK, may need a visa.)


We're thrilled that the kind folks at 4C have agreed to give our readers a whopping 30% discount on tickets. Just use the code PG4C at the official website when you register:
