Test round: Warming up phase

The target of the test round is not profitability but to find out the customer preferences. Thus the teams will be able to make target-oriented marketing decisions during the main round.
Main round: From now on every moment counts
Develop strategies and implement them in five periods, optimize your teamwork, correct analysis, and make decisions that promise success. During the main round we offer webinars to add a supplement to the simulation.
At the end of the main round there will be four finalist teams.

From the four best teams the MARGA Champions will be ascertained. Three of the five final periods will be online as usual, the last two periods will take place at the festive live final. Competition, get-together, gala dinner, award ceremony.
