On 21 August 2017 – with the start of the Gamescom – the SPOBIS Gaming & Media will take place in Cologne for the first time.

Particularly the rapid developments in eSports make it necessary for stakeholders from the worlds of professional sport to network with the gaming, media and advertising industries in addition to associated participating service providers and target groups. In order for all of those involved to take advantage of the synergies and potential that clearly exist, they must all get to know – and get on – with one another. It is exactly here that the SPOBIS Gaming & Media comes in: the international conference takes place at the interface between the gaming and sports business industries, providing an opportunity to consider the latest topics of relevance to both worlds and to bring top decision-makers from the different industries together.


The makers behind the event

    Our Partner - the Gamescom

    Die gamescom serves as the central platform for the European computer and video game industry. It is the world’s largest trade fair for interac- tive 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-de- gree event on the future of digital entertainment. Industry, retail and media come together at the gamescom to create the optimal condi- tions 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.
