The ESSENtial Retailer Summit is returning to the Internationale Spietale in Essen, Germany for its third annual event. Hosted by the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA), major publishers and retailers will have the opportunity to grow their businesses by forming new relationships across the globe.

Publishers will be showing off new releases, sharing sneak peeks of future titles, and offering information on retailer-specific programs and news. Participating retailers are encouraged to open a dialogue with publishers and form lasting professional connections.

The 2019 ESSENtial Retailer Summit will be held on Friday, October 25th from 4pm to 7pm (GMT+2) in Room M of the Congress Center South. You can find a map to this location here.

Retailers are encouraged to RSVP to the event via this link as there is limited space available.
