[games_access] GDC-Europe, GamesCom

Hello,

I think most of us know that beside the business part,
we always have to keep in mind the "political" / "human" background.

The VDVC learnt this also. We applied for a stand in a non-profit area.
In the past this area was for gamer who presents their point of view of
gaming.
We got a no. Officially the reason was that the VDVC is not the right
"organization".
That is very stupid, because a community (who is not organized in any way)
got a yes.
We learnt that there has to be some political reasons. But we never got the
information
what are the real reasons.

I think it is very important to know some of these background stuffs.


I only know that the SIG had some kind of offer to have a stand at the
GDC-Europe.
But I do not know anything else. No details, no background information.

I really would like to know more about this:
Who offered the stand, the IGDA or the GDC-Europe?
Who decided that this was cancelled.
Did we got an official reason why the submission for a presentation at the
GDC-Europe was not accepted?

Same goes for AbleGamers:
Who invited AbleGamers and for what?
GamesCom, GDC-Europe? Presentation, Stand?

And why did AbleGamers not ask the VDVC to take over this invitation?
I know we are at the beginning, but this would have been a great chance.

Best regards,
Sandra
