    Our Partner - the Gamescom

    The gamescom serves as the central platform for the European computer and video game industry. It is the world’s largest trade fair for interactive entertainment and the most important meeting place in Europe for decision-makers from the gaming industry.

    It is far more than just a video trade fair, though, but rather a 360-degree event on the future of digital entertainment. Industry, retail and media come together at the gamescom to create the optimal conditions for establishing and maintaining business relations. More than 500,000 visitors come to Cologne during the gamescom week, which comprises the gamescom, gamescom city festival and countless other related events – including 30,000 trade visitors.
