|Event||Long Night of the Museums|
|Time + Place||May 18th, Hamburg|
Additionally there will be Ingress activations all over the city. Every portal at a Museum in Hamburg will give additional items, distributed over 4 hacks (20 Resonators, 20 XMP, 20 Power cubes, 4 Rare Heat Sinks, 4 Rare Multihacks, 8 Rare Portal Shields, 4 Very Rare Portal Shields, 4 Softbank Ultralinks, 4 Jarvis, 4 ADA).
We are very excited to see Niantic partner with local organisations in this way, as it we feel like these types of mini, hyper-local events, can be easily organised and provided all across the globe. Hamburg is a huge city, no questions there, but we sincerely hope that smaller cities will get a chance to organise a similar event on their own, especially when it’s tied with culture, history or arts.
We still remember writing about the Pokémon GO Chester Heritage Festival event, the true pioneer of Niantic’s hyper-local events. Chester was an awesome social experiment and it was a success through and through. It’s not hard to imagine a future where local players can become brand promoters and create Pokemon GO tie-ins with their local heritage / culture based events.
