"For cost reasons, participation in games conferences is unfortunately not an option for many students, even though they could learn a lot at these conferences. With the 200 tickets we are sponsoring for the Hamburg Games Conference, we now want to make a contribution to changing that. We are looking forward to the breath of fresh air that the students will undoubtedly bring to the event," explains Michael Zillmer, co-founder and COO of InnoGames.
As of now, students of all disciplines can register their interest in one of the 100 tickets via the link https://innogam.es/wnLNtm. Prerequisites are a current study at a German university or university of applied sciences as well as sufficient knowledge of English to be able to follow the contents of the English-language conference.
The first 100 students who meet these criteria will receive a code via email within a few business days, which they can enter in the Hamburg Games Conference ticket system (https://www.gamesconference.com/) to receive a free student ticket.
Important note: Proof in the form of a student ID or certificate of enrolment must be brought to the conference. Without such proof, access will be denied.
Furthermore, it is recommended that all students who might have to travel from outside Hamburg make sure before registering their interest that they will be able to finance any costs for travel and, if necessary, accommodation.
