All of us have a deep passion for storytelling and we all love games. When we first set out to organize the STAG conference, we all agreed that we wanted to create the best experience possible. So we handpicked everything, from the speakers to the location to the catering. Because we want you to meet the speakers, mingle with other attendees, learn, be inspired, and have fun while doing so.

Andy likes games. So much so that, at one point in her life, she decided that becoming a game designer was the only way to be fully happy. She believes that games can tell all kinds of stories and evoke all sorts of feelings. When she thinks of designing games, she also thinks of the stories she’d like to tell.
