CEEGC 2018This will be the third edition of the CEEG awards, which will be held at the bombastic central and eastern Europe gaming conference.

However, after much speculation the 20-man shortlist for this year’s categories is finally out. The shortlist was generated as a result of 30 days online voting, which caused all the nominated companies to push themselves to the limit so that they can promote their brands on their social media accounts and other industrial media outlets.

Almost 131,562 online votes have been cast during this period and the organizers are happy to announce that the CEEGC website has peaked at over eleven thousand visitors per day. The final vote will be decided at a gala, which will take place at The Ritz-Carlton in Budapest on 25th September. This is the shortlist of all the nominees:
