War Game Challenge


For the 10th International Competitive/Market Intelligence Conference in Bad Nauheim, we have prepared a live war game challenge for our participants!
Throughout the conference, you and three fellow participants will form a team to compete against three other teams in a war game. Your mission will be to win a competitive situation. There will be three experienced CI practitioners on hand to provide advice and practical help.

While working on the case, you can test your own level of CI knowledge, learn from your colleagues, and immediately put into practice what you learn at the conference. At the end of the conference, your team will present its solution to the attendees and a panel of experts, who will provide their feedback.

This is a unique opportunity to learn and have fun while enjoying the conference program as well. The winning team will receive a 50% discount off the next conference or an ICI workshop of their choice!

This challenge is limited to 12 participants and registration will be on a strict first come, first serve policy! Conference participants can sign up to the War Game Challenge by sending an email to:
