Gamescom 2014 - small informal meetup

hi guys, next week is Gamescom week! Thought I'd put up a meetup to see which one of you will be there as well! I'm open to suggestions on meeting spot and time, I thought the end of the afternoon would be nice, perhaps we can have some beers afterwards?

    In determining a spot it'd be good to know if everyone is going on business tickets, or if some people are going on 'normal' visitor tickets?

    August 9

    • Martijn M.

      That's a good point. I was just wondering if everyone does have business tickets, there's a beer garden in (outside, top level) Hall 4 :D

      Otherwise I'm thinking of the beach area outside hall 8.

      Considering how busy it'll be, I'd definitely want to pick an outside location, at least to meet up. If one so choose, we could move to another location from there.

      August 9

    • daankip

      Good point! To all: could you post on this discussion page if you have a business or regular pass? :) think i personally prefer the beer garden but if anyone doesnt have a business ticket we'll make it the beach!

      August 9

  • NiK

    We will be there of course, with almost all the ETR team.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
