Know-how on international trade show appearances for game devs with Christopher Wulf
International trade show appearances – whether physical, digital or hybrid – are essential for game studios in establishing contacts with target groups and publishers beyond national borders.
With this Content Vienna Connecting workshop conceptualised by Jogi Neufeld (SUBOTRON), we specifically support Viennese game developers in preparing for their appearances at international trade shows and games festivals that will be held both digitally and hybrid in 2021, including:
- LudoNarraCon, 23-26 April, online only via Steam
- PAX East 3 – 6 June, Boston / PAX West 3 – 6 September, Seattle
- GDC 19 – 23 July, San Francisco
- A MAZE 21 – 24 July, Berlin
- gamescom 23 – 29 August Cologne
Workshop facilitator Christopher Wulf, Publishing Director at Those Awesome Guys and former Developer Relations & Curation Manager at Indie MEGABOOTH, will present the specific requirements for participation in the respective events. In a hands-on workshop using practical examples, Christopher Wulf will share dos and don'ts and address different types of presentation.
