In Pokémon GO you can promote your cities for upcoming live events. If you’re lucky, Niantic will pick your place and host a GO festival or safari zone in 2020.
How to apply for your city: Niantic is calling on all players, as well as tourism associations or municipalities, to apply for a live event in 2020.
If your city is then declared suitable, a live event from Niantic could be held there next year.
So you can promote your city for live events
How do I participate? If you think that your city is ideal for a live event, you can share it on Twitter or sign up for it on the Niantic website. There you fill out a questionnaire and send the application directly to Niantic.
These criteria must meet your city: Not only you have to find your city suitable, but also Niantic. There is a long list of criteria that you have to meet. We will insert a selection of the list below:
- Is there a park that is at least 20 hectares in size?
- Is the park in the center of your city?
- Are there good network and Wi-Fi connections?
- Are there enough hotels around the park?
- Is the city administration in favor of such an event?
- Is the density of PokéStops and Arenas high?
- Is there enough parking?
- Is the park of historical interest?
You can find the complete list of Niantic criteria on their website.
Which events are these? Niantic hosts live events every year. So this summer a GO Fest will take place in Dortmund . This was already there last year with a safari zone .
In addition, there were for example in Oberhausen or Munich special safari zones. Such an event could be held in your city by 2020.
