We offer a whole set of services for our professional members. Some are for free, others we need to charge some money to cover our expenses of course.
Company profile - free service
You can have a dedicated page for your company (or your profile as a Game Designer or professional) on the WarmUp Day pages. You need to provide your logo, links, images and texts. Please avoid sending us a link with the comment like..."you will find our description here". Put all as an attachment to an E-Mail or on Google Drive (preferred). You will not really benefit from the perspective of search engines like Google, if you just copy text which is online already (this will be regarded as double content). We would recommend to write something sligtly different. Please also tell us your hall/booth number to let people how to find you!
Promotion of your games on the fair - free service
You can have a dedicated page for each of your game, including images, videos (we will embed Youtube), description etc. and of course links to your pre-order page. All rules as for the company page applies.
Promotion of your crowdfunding (Kickstarter etc.) campaign - free service
You can have a dedicated page for kickstarter campaigns... same rules as for the company page applies. Kickstarter Realease Party with Pickup in Germany - free service or with charge (depending on your plans)
You are ready to ship your kickstarter/crowdfunded games?. Why not having a game presentation event with a pickup service for backers? We can organize a gaming event or even a party in the city of Essen for you. Which place is better for going public in Germany? Also you can make use of the WarmUp Day as Kickstarter Pickup location.
Sale of your leftover games - with charge
We know it's not easy to take back games which are not sold on the fair. We take them and our external commissioner (SpieleGilde is a non-profit association and not allowed to do business) will sell them for you via mail order or pop-up stores in Germany. You tell us the sales price you like to have and we charge 40% for our service. 60% (less xpenses for the money transfer) of sold games will be send to your account (PayPal preffered) once a month. Of course we do have limited storage facilities, so we can't take hundreds of copies from various publishers. ;-) Since we are not an exhibitor, games needed to be delivered by yourself to an address in Essen.
Other services - free or with charge
The SpieleGilde board is part of the gaming industry since 1992. We owned a publishing house, retail shops or wholesale companies. We are experienced game designers by ourselves. We are not active pursuing own commercial gaming projects currently, but we understand your business and try to be of any help we can. Don't hesitate to ask!
Also - if there is anthing else we can do for you in preparation or during the fair - just let us know. We even may consider organizing a common booth together to share costs, logisitcs and demo-staff
