Opening speech from Dr. Carsten Brosda, Hamburg’s Senator for Culture
Dr. Carsten Brosda, Hamburg’s Senator for Culture – together with the organizers Dr. Ralph Oliver Graef and Dr. Christian Rauda as well as Dennis Schoubye from gamecity:Hamburg – will personally inaugurate the 11th Hamburg Games Conference. The Hamburg Senator for Culture’s greetings at 10:30 a.m. underlines the importance of the Hamburg Games Conference for the digital industry and emphasizes the importance of games as a cultural asset over and their economic relevance for the region.
Michael Schade (CEO Rockfish Games), keynote speaker
Michael Schade, CEO and Co-Founder at the Hamburg based studio Rockfish Games, gives the keynote at Hamburg Games Conference 2020: With more than 20 years of experience in the industry Schade delivers his insights on how to be successful on the games market – from funding to developing to selling a game.
Apple Arcade: The next big hit for mobile developers?
In fall 2019 Apple launched Apple Arcade, a new subscription service that differs widely from the established rules of mobile gaming – the games work offline and contain no ads or micro transactions. Sounds great for players, but is it also a sustainable business model for developers?
100 million new players by 2030: Games in onboard entertainment
Onboard entertainment is well established on (long distance) flights – and will become an important feature of electric cars in the foreseeable future. Tesla already has a number of games implemented, while plenty of other car manufacturers are working on similar solutions for their onboard entertainment. This panel is dedicated to this exciting new market segment.
The Hamburg Games Conference is hosted by GRAEF Rechtsanwälte in cooperation with gamecity:Hamburg and organized by Super Crowd Entertainment.
