Kickoff with Lord Mayor & Press

Together with partners of the festival, the City of Gelsenkirchen and the press, we have heralded the festival year 2020. At the kick-off event, Lord Mayor Frank Baranowski was very pleased about the upcoming Places _ Festival: “Gelsenkirchen is a digital model city, and the Places _ Festival is the perfect poster child for us. I am extremely pleased, that the VR industry is meeting in Gelsenkirchen”. We as well are looking forward to the festival, which will start in 2020 with a sharpened profile. Matthias Krentzek, Festival Director of the Places _ VR Festival: “After the initial hype about VR, we want to shed light on which applications in which areas will really make sense in the future and have social relevance. At Places, the industry meets many different people and can test whether and by whom their developments are accepted.
