Berlin / Mülheim a.d. Ruhr, 16 February 2015: Aruba Events celebrates the biggest line-up of speakers ever to appear at Quo Vadis in the thirteen-year history of the conference (Berlin, April 21 to 23) with a special Sales Day. This one-time-only campaign will run for exactly 24 hours: On Friday, February 20, a 20-percent discount will be granted on all advance tickets purchased on www.qvconf.com/tickets between 0:00 and 24:00 hours.
“Our Sales Day is a thank-you to the European and international games industry, whose members have been supporting Quo Vadis since 2003 with first-rate expert lectures, workshops and discussion rounds. At the same time, it is an invitation to all those who haven’t attended Quo Vadis before but are interested in learning more about the future of game development, its economic significance and, of course, the brains behind some of the world’s most successful computer games,” according to Quo Vadis organizer, Stephan Reichart.
True to the meaning of the Latin name of the conference, quo vadis – “Where are you going?”, the gathering is a platform for debate on the development of the games industry as a whole, on future trends and challenges. Over the last few years, Quo Vadis in Berlin has evolved into Europe’s think tank for the future of the games industry. Some of the leading minds of the international developer scene have announced their appearance at this year’s event.
Masterminds Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey of Sledgehammer Games are two of the people behind “Call of Duty”, one of the best-selling game series in the world. BioWare’s Dorian Kieken will share his extensive knowledge of the development of the multi-award-winning “Mass Effect” series. With Ed Fries, Quo Vadis welcomes the man who made Microsoft a game company. Fries built the Microsoft Game Studios and was heavily involved in the development of the first XBOX. Christopher Schmitz, Development Director at French game developer Quantic Dream, along with “Dead Island” and “Dreadnought” developer Yager Development, Crytek, Remedy, and many more of the industry’s top stars and studios will deliver presentations. The first 40 out of over 100 sessions are listed online on http://qvconf.com/all-sessions-quo-vadis-2015 .
In addition to the Sales Day, Aruba Events announces its media partnership with Gamesindustry.biz Germany. As Christoph Holowaty, editor-in-chief of GamesIndustry.biz Germany, notes: “We have always looked at media partnerships as being something more than the exchange of logos. This year we are kicking off the media partnership between Aruba Events, Quo Vadis and GamesIndustry.biz with extensive coverage during the run-up and from the conference itself, which has become one of the prime meeting points for the entire European games industry.”
In 2014, a total of 170 speakers presented 110 lectures and workshops which addressed current developments in the computer and video game industry. Having hosted over 2,500 visitors in 2014, Quo Vadis is about to nearly double its capacity in 2015. The established venue, Café Moskau, will be augmented by Berlin’s nearby Kino International, where the keynote presentations and other featured talks are to be held. Quo Vadis has reserved a whopping 800 sqm of floor space for the “Pitch & Match” business format which will be introduced at the conference to support games companies in their targeted business development activities by providing a forum for meetings with potential partners and associates.
