Gamecity Treff meets Polaris
Gamecity Hamburg invited everyone from the Hamburg games industry to the Gamecity Treff on Friday, October 28. From 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm we met up at the Grüner Jäger music club in Hamburg St. Pauli. Over 250 people attended to celebrate together with us the first day of the new Polaris convention that started on the same day, but also to meet familiar faces and make new contacts over a snack and a drink at our traditional casual networking event for the whole games and gaming industry in Hamburg.
We're happy that the event was even sold out and that so many people enjoyed the evening in a relaxed atmosphere and had fun meeting fellow games industry people after a busy convention day.
This edition of the Gamecity Treff was sponsored by Bytro - a big thank you for supporting the event!
About the Gamecity Treff:
Gamecity Hamburg’s aim is to improve the general conditions for companies and founders of the games value chain in the city, to support them in their further development and to anchor Hamburg in the public perception as one of the leading games hubs in Europe. At the same time, we promote the exchange of knowledge within the sector and with other industries. The Gamecity Treff started in 2003 (!) as a networking event to bring together Hamburg’s games industry and is still going strong with up to 200 participants per event. These informal events aim to promote the networking and exchange of information within the industry.
The new community convention in northern Germany, Polaris, invites you together with Nintendo, Papaplatte, Canon and many more into a playable amusement park. Experience a program around gaming, eSports, Asia, art and food on five different stages, meet your favorite creators and play through the fair with the companion app.
With a unique mix of topics, Polaris brings diverse communities to the Hamburg exhibition halls from October 28 - 30. Over 250 great exhibitors, the biggest German influencers, as well as international e-sports teams will be cavorting on 20,000 m2. That means stage shows, tournaments, workshops, food, cosplay and much more over three days.
The team at Bytro is passionate about developing and publishing unique strategy games. Based in Hamburg’s city center, Bytro is an innovative and driven team of over 70 people drawn from around the world. Currently, they have over 20 different nationalities on their team – a truly international atmosphere.
Bytro's games are enjoyed by more than 15 million people – which is basically six times the city of Hamburg! – in 150 countries and 13 languages.
