Choose Lithuania!

One of the fastest internet speeds in Europe and a mindset of pushing technology and start-ups forward are what fuels this beautiful country.

Lithuania is known to be obsessed with high-quality video games and boasts strong traditions in the region. Lithuanian Global Game Jams attendance is second largest in the world (counting attendees per capita, 2017), and it’s the only country in the Baltics, that has almost a dozen of dedicated video game media outlets published in the local language.

From IT to games

There are more than 28 000 IT specialists in Lithuania and 500+ of these are working in the games industry.

Industry growth

In 2017 Lithuania had 28 game development companies. According to 2018 statistics, this number has grown rapidly over the past year and reached 37.

Learning games

Lithuania has a lot of potential talent. We have 2 full game development study programs and 6 game development courses at Lithuanian universities and colleges.

Huge success story

The first big hit that received worldwide recognition is quite recent and has seen hours and hours of video and live stream content produced with its gameplay. The wobbly success story we are talking about is Human: Fall Flat, released in 2016.


GameOn expo is the biggest games and technology exhibition in the Baltic region and a perfect place to present your brand to our audience. Last year our event increased its attendance to 16 000 visitors over two days (compared to 12 000 we had in 2016).

We are the meeting spot for publishers, developers, press, retailers, and consumers, so whoever you want to reach, they will be at GameOn! We will help you realize your full potential for the showcase. Just contact us to talk about options and possibilities.

Entertainment for the whole family

We pride ourselves on providing a fun experience for the whole family that is why we have our separate family area which encourages parents to share their children’s passion for games (or the other way around) and informs them about ways to spend quality time with their kids.

In this area, we introduce quality products or services dedicated to the whole family and you can become a part of it!

Did you know?

In 2017 the family area showcased the “Stall Catchers” game. Players contributed to Alzheimer’s disease research. Over the two days of the event, more data was collected than during the previous 6 months of research.

Reach your customers

Our visitors come to “GameOn” expecting to take home some trophy or remembrance present. It can be a computer game, comic book, poster, action figure or something else entirely. If you are a vendor who sells gaming related products or wants to bring your own merchandise to the show, the shopping area is the place for you. And to make the deal even sweeter: GameOn 2018 is perfectly scheduled to stock up on Christmas presents!

How does Meet To Match work?

MeetToMatch is much more than just an online meeting manager: When your account is set, a personal matchmaker is assigned who puts time and effort into getting your meeting invitations accepted. The matchmaker will guide you through the process with the aim of getting you the most relevant meetings as possible.

A couple of months before the event, the online meeting manager is opened, which eventually contains all the participants of MeetToMatch, including a profile and explanation of what each participant is looking for.

The meeting manager is user-friendly and does not require much explanation. Just log-in, complete your profile and start using it intuitively. Use the meeting manager to find potential business partners and set-up appointments. You can instantly see who is available at what timeslot, so you only have to make an attractive introduction through the meeting manager. Within the online meeting manager, you are allowed to plan meetings up until and even during the event.

The meetings are held at a separate location at the venue, only accessible to participants of MeetToMatch. At that location either space with the meeting, tables are prepared for you to meet with potential business partners, or you can meet at predefined meeting points around the venue. Your personal agenda will always show the meeting location for each specific meeting.

Step 1 – Register online

Early registration increases your chance to find potential partners.

Step 2 – Create your online profile

Present your company projects and services to show the world why you are the best! A personal matchmaker will be assigned to you.

Step 3 – Organize your agenda

Use the online meeting system to plan your meetings. Invite possible partners or accept received invitations to meet on-site. Block time-slots for lunch or that conference session you wanted to see.

Step 4 – Personalized match-making

After you reached out to interesting companies, your matchmaker might help you getting that declined meeting request accepted, or suggest additional potential partners.

Step 5 – The meetings

Use the 30-minute meetings on-site to exchange ideas or pitch your product.

Step 6 – Fill in the gaps

Last minute meetings can be arranged by the matchmaker on-site or you can visit conference sessions.

Step 7 – Network

Be present in the MeetToMatch arena to meet unexpected new contacts. Socialize at the bar and the party.
