**(Straight from the PR)**
Following the successful premiere last year, the Women in Tech Day is once again being organised in the context of gamescom. The forum for women working in the games industry and other technical areas of various industries takes place on 17 August 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Europa Hall of Congress Centre East of Koelnmesse.
The Women in Tech Day is a dialogue platform and is especially conceived of for women who work in the computer and video games industry or who hope to be active in this industry in future. As a networking event, the dialogue platform makes it possible for interested parties to exchange ideas on the opportunities and perspectives in technical areas, including the video game, IT and other digital segments, to inform themselves and to establish new contacts. The Women in Tech Day combines lectures, workshops and networking, offers participants a global network, and thus a comprehensive exchange of experiences with women in leadership positions, entrepreneurs and technical pioneers.
The Women in Tech Day is a joint initiative of gamescom and GDC Europe. Further information is available at www.gamescom.com .
