Hamburg Games Conference: Focusing on the topic “Invest in Games” on March 1-2, 2023
The Hamburg Games Conference will return as an on-site event in a new location in Hamburg. The conference theme "Invest in Games" will shed light on current and future developments in the international games industry.
Where are still untapped potentials in the games markets? What challenges do studios face in acquiring funding and partners for their projects? Will the wave of billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions in the international games industry continue? These and more questions will be adressed in the two-day program of the Hamburg Games Conference 2023.
The last edition of the conference, 2022’s Hamburg Games Conference Hybrid welcomed more than 600 participants online and in Hamburg. After two conference editions with digital and hybrid event concepts, the program of the 14th Hamburg Games Conference in 2023 will again be held completely on-site and for the first time at the Altonaer Museum in Hamburg.
