Frank's Blog: Preparing GDC Europe

[Game Developers Conference Europe event director Frank Sliwka welcomes you to his regularly updated comments about the August 17-19 event taking place in Cologne, Germany.]
One of my favorite jobs in preparing GDC Europe was to check out the nightlife of Cologne. With my two good friends, Alex and Franko (both members of the gamescom team), we enjoy KOLSCH a local beer you too will soon enjoy. We then went to "Friesenstrasse", one of the state-of-the -art clubs are here. This was just one of the many clubs and restaurants in Cologne.
Then there is the Ivory Lounge, where we will have our GDC Club Party (powered by Gameforge) on Monday night. In my opinion, this is a really nice place, but I prefer the "Old part of Cologne" which is located at the river Rhine near the famous Cologne cathedral or Kolner Dom.
Stay tuned for more in my next blog.
[Frank and his colleagues will be posting regular news updates from behind the scenes of GDC Europe, including content reveals and other helpful information. You can subscribe individually to the GDC News blog via its RSS feed.]
