Next stop, Gamescom – 8/13/16
Next stop, Gamescom
By Tim Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
Thanks to the Goethe-Institut Boston, I’ll be traveling to Gamescom, the giant European games show, in Cologne, Germany. The Goethe-Instituts make up the international cultural arm of the Federal Republic of Germany. There are 159 institutes in 98 countries – including the one in a handsome Back Bay brownstone.
In addition to their typical work, the GIB is beginning to explore the games space from multiple perspectives from cultural to economic. I’ll be supporting their efforts in helping to build relationships between the German game development community and ours here in Massachusetts.
Also joining the mission will be folks from the MIT Game Lab.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to all the meetings and activities we have planned. It’s going to be awesome. Thanks again to the Goethe-Institut Boston for making it possible.
