FAQs about the GEMA General Assembly

You cannot take part on site and digitally. Instead, you must choose the way you want to take part each year.
So that you can comfortably take part on site, you or your representative need(s) a state-of-the-art Android (minimum Android 10) or an Apple smartphone (minimum iOS14), or a tablet or laptop with the most recent browser version of Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari. If you do not have your own device, you can borrow a device on site. 

To comfortably take part digitally, we recommend a PC (Windows 10 minimum) or a Mac (MacOS Catalina minimum), including the most current browser version of Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Safari, camera and microphone and an internet connection of a minimum of 10Mbit/s download and 5 Mbit/s upload speed. We also recommend that you use a headset. The Internet Explorer is not supported.
