Clear your calendars for this Friday – its Europe’s first Escape Game Convention organized by Exit Ventures GmbH #EGC15

Exit Ventures GmbH are organising the first Escape Games Convention to be held in Stuttgart, Germany this Friday. There’s already an impressive speaker line up with the day starting off with Johannes Ellenberg, CEO of Exit Ventures GmbH welcoming all attendees to the event. There will also be a video message from Professor Scott Nicholson, founder of Because Play Matters and who also developed one of the largest escape room surveys to be undertaken. He will be talking about his views on North American escape rooms for the event.

Following this will be Attila Gyurkovics as a speaker – he’s the founder of Parapark, one of the first escape room franchises in Europe and the first in Budapest, Hungary. Other talks will be from Michael Bierhahn (10 am), a co-founder of ExitGames Stuttgart – an early escape room set up in Germany and he’ll be talking about his last year and a half of operating experience within the market. Also Dr. Carsten Ulbricht will be talking about the legal framework in which escape rooms need to abide by in Germany (at 2 pm).

There will be workshops throughout the day on a range of topics and a whole two hours in the afternoon given to attendees to play through escape rooms set up at the convention. German and English will be the main languages used on the day, while Scott and Attila’s talks will be held in English. ExitVentures will also be recording the event throughout the day and hopefully they will upload any videos online as soon as they can.

If you can’t be there in person, you can still follow the day across social media especially on Twitter.
