The Hamburg Games Conference is back for another edition with the theme Communities – new opportunities for development and marketing. This time, the focus is on the enormous potential of communities and what chances they offer for development, PR and marketing.

The conference will give talent and CEOs from gaming and media companies the information they need to prepare for the changes in the digital world by providing them with numerous best-practice examples – because an open and responsible approach to the community and the resulting feedback will offer numerous opportunities.
