Respawn 2015 is over! It was amazing.

After two days with great talks, interesting people, Cello Fortress, Marioke, Barbecues and of course gamescom we are back in the office and we want to say thank you all!

First and foremost we´d like to thank our speakers, who came from Afrika, Austria, Argentina, Canada, France, Finland, Germany, Irland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, UK & the USA. We are overwhelmed how you guys and gals made Respawn rock!

Then we are happy to work with such great partners like Nordic Game Conference in Malmö/Sweden, the GIC Game Industry Conference in Poznań/Poland, GMGC in Chengdu/China, Control Conference in Utrecht/Netherlands, the Israel Mobile Summit in Tel Aviv/Israel & our friends at the Ludicious - Zürich Game Festival !

Remember? We had awesome parties and relaxed gatherings as there was the Games Music Live Jam on Sunday, the joint GDC Europe and Respawn Party powered by Gree on Monday, the Respawn BBQ with Cello Fortress and Marioke on Tuesday, the Bavarian Beer Reception by Games/Bavaria, and Party Warm-Up Cocktail by InnoGames, soon to be followed by dozens of festivities during gamescom.

And another thank you goes out to our sponsors, foremost to our mainsponsor InnoGames who supported us in so many ways, with speakers, softdrinks, cocktails. Thanks to SoftLayer for bringing an exciting talk. Thanks for filming around at Respawn SAE. And thank you to the Games Academy who opened up their Alumni Reception to host you all, to Ludicious for bringing in awesome projects from Switzerland and everything else you did, to Google, to BIU.Dev/BIU.Net, the University of Trier, Games/Bavaria - and next year hopefully you! :)

And theres of course you: Thank you all for joining us, to make Respawn a real Gathering of Game Developers where everybody who cares about sustainable game development meets on eyelevel! Thanks for joining us this year and we hope you all had such a great time like we had! 

Save the date for next year´s Respawn on 15th and 16th of August 2016. See you there or even before at Quo Vadis. create.game.business in April, 18-20, cornerstone of International Gamesweek Berlin!

It's getting started.

The final preparations are made. The program is set, badges are ready, goodie bags are packed and the set-up at Dock.One will be finished on Sunday. The shuttles are prepping their engines, the headsets are silently waiting - the only thing that´s missing is you!!

We can’t wait until Monday and are looking forward to an awesome Respawn this year with great partners, speakers, friends - with Marioke, Cello Fortress and the Games Music Live Jam - aside from a packed program schedule! Enjoy your weekend, safe travels and see you at Respawn very soon!!
