The general aim of the International Meet ´N Match event was to provide a platform for game developers and other professionals within the gaming industry across the Baltic Sea region to meet and find potential future business partners and create an international network. In the match sessions, companies had the opportunity to connect with and get feedback from several mentors over a short period. Other goals included improving the internationalisation of SMEs within the gaming industry in the Baltic Sea region, experimenting with formats for informal digital networking and creating value through digital networking practices in precarious times. Therefore, an overall goal was to contribute to knowledge exchange within digitisation practices in the cultural and creative industries.
