Gogogic is proud to be a part of The Icelandic Gaming Industry, a group of 8 gaming companies in Iceland. The group formed early in May of 2009 but was formally established as a part of the Federation of Icelandic Industries (SI) on September 24th, 2009. To celebrate its first year in existence IGI will host a conference at one of Iceland’s most impressive spots, the Blue Lagoon, on September 24th, 2010.
The title of the conference is “The first IGI anniversary Conference: The future is… bright……. “. The title of the conference highlights the optimism that exists within the IGI. Currently more than 400 people work for the eight member companies in Iceland, and on a global scale the companies have close to 800 employees.
