Greetings.

My name is Mike and I live in Toronto, Canada. I am attending Essen 2016, because I am producing a radio piece for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about the growth of the board game world and what's behind its expanding popularity.

In Denmark, there is a concept called Hygge (Hoogah), and I would very much like to interview someone who is a native of Denmark about this.

If you are someone, or know someone from that country and you are going to Essen, please contact me. Thanks!

A huge group of teachers from the Østerskov Efterskole will be attending Essen this year. I'm sure I can convince some of them to help you!

We use games to teach, so Essen will be a great place for us to find inspiration!

Being a teacher myself, I'm interested in your statement : what games do you use to teach what for which school subject, please ?

I'm up for it too. I've lived abroad on all continents as well so I might be able to give some comparisons

Interesting piece. For the overall topic, do you also plan to interview Canadians (exhibitors and attendees) and representatives from other nations?

I'll be there with a couple of Danish friends (even bringing a friend from the UK, who has lived in Denmark for 10 years.)

All of us are fluent English speakers.
