Hamburg Games Conference: Gaming meets Business 2024
On March 5 and 6, the Hamburg Games Conference (HGC) will become the meeting point for international games companies and start-ups, as well as all those who want to understand the underlying issues and are aiming for cooperation with games studios.
It is time to get on board! These companies are joining the HGC with speakers and representatives: Remedy Entertainment, Metacore, Thunderful Group, The Sandbox, Animoca Brands, Bigpoint, InnoGames, Sunday, Gamelight, London Venture Partners and Gamesindustry.biz and more.
