Let's celebrate the games industry. We offer you the chance to excel in "eventing" and boost your network with peers, politicians and decision makers. By doing so, we revive the Colosseum Cinema that was closed for almost 2.5 years with games. Accomplish our quests and boost all of your energy levels.


We got your narrative needs covered with high level panel discussions on the following topics:

  • The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - a discussion on business culture by the SHeroes and hidden Champions of the industry
  • Look Mom! I'm on TV :) - the Dev Booster expert panel on promotion, self distribution and fame
  • Zentralisierung x Dezentralisierung. Sexy Branche ohne Haus. Debatte zum Hub, Haus, Laden und Netzwerke. Mostly in German, but not exclusively. We call it Denglish.


Get a Casual Business Friday ticket to enter the space. The ticket enables you to participate in the networking evening. Yet to get your SUMMER RECEPTION badge you need to re-register. Secret invite link will be sent to ticket holders in due time.

Take a seat in Cinema 2 to participate in the panel discussions, enter Cinema X to experience the VR showcase curated by Wait long enough and we will open Cinema 1 for a special Pictoplasma screening. Go up the stairs to distribute your business cards and find your MeetToMatch dates. Make sure to fill out your profile ahead of time!

Rub your hands before you play our amazing Dev Booster finalists on the brand new, custom made Booster Arcades, get nostalgic with retro games and play your all time favs on the Nerdistan stations. Empty your glasses from the bar and enjoy your vegetarian snacks in the food court or simply enjoy being in this historic building.
