Gamecity Treff Meets Hamburg Music
Gamecity Treff is back! We have teamed up with Hamburg Music Business, to not only invite the Hamburg games industry but for the very first time also the Hamburg music industry.
The games and music industry in Hamburg already have their touchpoints, but we believe there is more to it. This is why we wanted to tighten the connection between Hamburg’s games and music industries, foster the exchange of knowledge, and create new contacts and business opportunities.
This was the first on-site Gamecity Treff in two years, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the “Grüner Jäger” we have found the perfect location to bring games and music together and provide a comfortable and safe environment for all participants.
This Gamecity Treff offered networking opportunities across the two industries. Also, short presentations of the games and music market in Hamburg were held and a business speed dating. Additionally, "ONE PLAYER MODE - Music From The Wonderful World Of Videogames" played.
This event was sponsored by Photon and Bigpoint - a big thank you for supporting the Gamecity Treff!
