About Scottish Games Week
The Scottish Games Ecosystem
Scottish Games Week, the first-ever week-long, Scotland-wide series of events focused upon videogames, will take place from October 24th-28th 2022.
Created and organised by the Scottish Games Network, with support from the Scottish Government’s Tech Ecosystem Review (STER) fund, Scottish Games Week will position the sector as a key part of Scotland’s digital future.
From design, development and publishing, to education and the application of games, the event series will showcase Scotland’s pioneering and diverse games ecosystem and act as a catalyst for a more connected and collaborative sector across Scotland, the UK and internationally.
In 2021 the global games industry was worth a staggering $192.7 billion USD, eclipsing many of the other key digital sectors such as cyber, data, AI, fintech and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Scotland has played a pioneering role in the evolution of the games sector since the late 1980s and continues to produce some of the world’s most popular games, including Grand Theft Auto and Minecraft.
The programme for Scottish Games Week will take place across the whole of Scotland, with events being planned in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, as well as the Highlands and Islands and Scottish Borders.
