Industry Day 2020

SGGA has been organizing Industry Day annually since 2018, when it was still the Singapore Games Guild. The event aims to bridge the gap between the education and development sectors of the games development industry and to become a nurturing ground for Singapore-based talents to springboard their career in the industry.

The 2020 edition is the first under the SGGA, and will expand its scope to include sessions on esports. The event will be held fully online on 7 & 8 August 2020.

The recordings from the event can be found here on our YouTube Channel.

Consultation and curation of content

The SGGA has partnered with Koelnmesse to assist in the curation and recommendation of conference speakers, guests and to facilitate pitch and networking sessions.

Singapore Pavilion

SGGA will also be spearheading Singapore's presence at the event, and coordinating the Singapore Pavilion for both B2B and B2C, ensuring that Singapore companies are able to showcase their games, services and products to both local and international visitors. SGGA members will enjoy subsidised booth rates and invitations to networking events.

Singapore Games Week

Leading up to Gamescom Asia 2021, SGGA will be planning a full week of events, exhibitions and festivals that'll last an entire week. This will give our international visitors all the more reason to fly in earlier to enjoy the festivities. Local creators will be able to showcase their projects and products at these fringe events as well as enjoy several days of networking events with the industry.

Heritage Game Jam 2020

Our association supports events beneficial for the community organised by smaller fringe groups such as the Sagakaya team, the latter of which organised the Heritage Game Jam, an annual week-long game jam aimed at getting game developers and socially-conscious Singaporeans to create games which celebrate, debate and illuminate our Singaporean identity, encouraging the public to acknowledge games as an art form.

Rising SEA 2020

Another such initiative is the Rising SEA game jam, a game jam which spans across 4 months and is a collaboration between the South-East Asian game development communities, again creating bite-sized games which explore themes of our shared heritage of being part of SEA.

Travel & Learn Programme

Singapore Games Association (SGGA) organised and led a delegation of 25 on a 6D5N Travel & Learn Program to learn more about the Malaysian game development scene – the mission was in collaboration with Ngee Ann Polytechnic 's Continuing Education & Training (CET) Team.

The programme planning is currently halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
