With the Polaris Convention, Gamecity Hamburg, whose games industry has around 180 companies with more than 3,000 employees, is now getting its own big event. “I am very pleased that a new game event is starting with Polaris. Through its innovative concept, Polaris will certainly strengthen Hamburg’s profile as one of Europe’s leading games locations and further enrich Hamburg’s successful industry promotion, says Dr. Carsten Brosda, Hamburg’s Senator for Culture and Media.
More than 120 exhibitors have already registered and cover the areas of gaming, e-sports, artists, Asia and shopping. Among the partners are names such as Capcom, Crunchy Roll, Daedalic, Unicorns of Love, Acer, Rocket Beans, Razer, Fritz Kola, Wired Productions and Steam. Visitors will be guided through the various stands and attractions of the fair, which includes stage shows, entertainment venues, gastronomy stands and photo spots.
Currently, the concept of the Polaris Convention is fine-tuned. Visitors can expect an exciting e-sports program with over 500 players who are in the titles Rocket League and Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Measure Ultimate. In addition, there are FIFA show matches with exciting teams as well as a show program with familiar faces of the scene.
Interested artists can submit their registrations via this website until the end of July in order to make it into the curated line-up. And it will also be exciting for those interested in cosplay, because a competition concept is being worked on together with Farbenfuchs.
Through the accompanying app specially developed by Super Crowd, the convention is not only expanded digitally, but also creates real added value for users with various incentives. Visitors can look forward to an exciting mix of experiences that has taken an amusement park as a model. In this way, special events can be unlocked by reaching milestones together.
