Networking event: Hamburg meets Photography

23.09.2023 - from 6 pm

On Saturday, September 23, 2023, we will be meeting up with some exciting photographers and videographers such as Luise Blumstengel, Vivienne Bade and Philip R?sler for a networking event at the Altes M?dchen brewery pub at the Ratsherrn brewery. After the PHOTOPIA photo and content trade fair closes, it's just a short walk to Hamburg's hippest district - Sternschanze. Lots of cool people, interesting conversations and the odd short talk await you there.

Come along, chat with other photographers, raise a glass with us and have a good time! (The first drinks are on us!)

Oh well, the most important thing is: Share this link with your friends who can't miss this event!

The event will take place on September 23, 2023 from 6 p.m. and ends at around 10 p.m. Since the PHOTOPIA 23 photo fair is taking place right next door, you can visit the fair and come back to us afterwards.

Yes, for planning purposes we ask for a free registration. Don't worry, of course you don't have to be there the whole time and if you arrive a little later, that's no problem either. Registrations are limited.

Of course, the first drinks are on us!

The event takes place in the Ratsherrn Diele of the Braugasthaus Altes M?dchen in Hamburg's Schanzenviertel.

In order to find us in the best possible way, please use the following address for navigation:

Braugasthaus Altes M?rdchen
Lagerstra?e 28, 20357 Hamburg

room "Ratsherrn Diele" is signposted above the entrance.

As Hamburg's best-known craft beer brewery, Ratsherrn is a great location for our event. Of course, our invitation also includes a few drinks. The first few beers and soft drinks are on us.

There is also excellent food on site, but this is not included and you have to pay for it yourself. Alternatively, the nearby Schanzenviertel offers a great culinary selection to grab a bite to eat beforehand.
