Hamburg Games Conference 2022

The Hamburg Games Conference’s hybrid event concept on March 2 and 3 features an on-site part in a new location and an extensive online program: All keynotes of the conference will be live-streamed via its online platform and will focus on the topic "Moving Markets". The digital conference platform, which was developed in Hamburg, allows participants to explore an interactive online world with exhibitors and booths as well as networking with other participants via video calls. The on-site part of the conference on March 3 will be moved to the newly opened gaming location "RCADIA" in Hamburg-Bergedorf. Here the focus will be on networking, matchmaking and roundtables. According to Hamburg’s Covid-Safety-Regulations, a maximum of 200 business guests can attend on site. Intel and Xsolla are new on board as main sponsors. Tickets are available at:

"The Covid-19 pandemic presents us with complex challenges for events and requires a new on-site concept: our conference will therefore exceptionally this year take place in the gaming location RCADIA. For our business guests, this allows for personal exchange and the opportunity to make contacts face-to-face. We welcome our online guests on our Hamburg Games Conference online platform, which was very well received at our last conference and led to us welcoming more than 600 participants worldwide for the first time in 2021.", explains Dr. Ralph Oliver Graef, Managing Partner at GRAEF Rechtsanwälte, co-organizers of Hamburg Games Conference.

"With our Hamburg Games Conference Hybrid, we can combine the advantages of on-site and online events. Our digital conference platform is the perfect tool to enable participants to get new impulses in digitally accessible keynotes, panel discussions and Q&A rounds, to experience conference feeling at the online expo and to network. In the on-site part of the conference at RCADIA, we will enable up to 200 participants with business tickets to meet in a safe environment under Hamburg’s ‘2G-Plus rules’ on the second day of the conference," continues Dennis Schoubye, Head of Gamecity Hamburg, co-organizers of Hamburg Games Conference.

On March 3, participants who have booked a business ticket can schedule meetings at the gaming location RCADIA.

To attend on-site, three vaccinations or two vaccinations and a Covid-19 antigenic test will be mandatory (“2G-Plus-rules” according to Hamburg’s Covid-Safety-Regulations). Participants traveling from out of town will benefit from a discounted hotel room contingent directly at the venue.
