Offer for Visitors

Free Portfolio Review: In 2022, the demand for this offer was so great that all the offered slots were sold out in no time. We are pleased that we were able to inspire the experts to support us in this year’s Portfolio Review:

Nadine Steiner (Art Director at Rivers and Wine Studios)

Christiane Ebrecht (Associate Art Director at Ulisses Spiele)

Julia Goerke-Milde (Concept Artist, Illustrator at Rhenus Vina Musica)

Whether you're just getting started with the studio or you're already a little further along, we believe that an unbiased look at your portfolio can't hurt.

Insight into the Education Landscape: At the Indie Game Fest, pupils can find out more about educational institutions and their training and study programs. Lecturers will be on-site to answer visitors' in-depth questions about educational opportunities.

Meetings with Content Creators: By working with LetsPlay4Charity and Gaming Aid we are able to invite content creators and offer them the opportunity to conduct activities with their communities.

Game Art You Can Touch: In collaboration with The Art of Games, we illustrate the process from the idea to the finished game as art on canvases, acrylas and framed art prints to make it "touchable".

Offer for Trade Visitors

Networking Brunch: on the 360° roof terrace, further contacts can be made and the showcase can be planned while enjoying the fantastic view

Business Lounges: scheduled meetings can be held in one of the provided business lounges with enough space for conversation

Game Executives Dinner due to the unique challenges and problems that executives and founders have to face, we offer them the opportunity to exchange and network with each other.

Aftershow Party: We will end the evening together. At the party, indie developers and trade visitors will once again have the opportunity to network in order to reach a collaboration outside of the Indie Game Fest.
