What you need to know about the Gamescom 2020
“The Heart of Gaming” – that’s gamescom. The leading European trade fair for digital gaming culture is the meeting point for global companies from the entertainment industry and the international gaming community. Once again in 2020, Cologne will stand for innovation, enthusiasm and playing fun: the next gamescom takes place from 26 to 29 August.
Gamescom 2020 is a trade fair for video games at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is organized by the Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware (Federal Association of Interactive Entertainment Software). It is used by many video game developers to show off their upcoming games and game-related hardware.
Gamescom 2020 is the world’s largest games event with 400,000 visitors, more than 5,000 journalists and 900 exhibitors from 54 countries. It was first held August 2009. There are areas for business, entertainment and professionals.
The conceptual fundaments of gamescom consist of an efficient and comfortable business area, an entertainment area for the ultimate gaming and fun experience and the gamescom festival in the centre of Cologne to attract new target groups. As the only event of its kind, gamescom links the entire value-added chain, from developers, publishers and the trade all the way down to consumers, while stimulating discussion forums at every level.
The entire games world will present itself to the public at gamescom, the leading B2B entertainment trade fair in Europe and beyond. In Gamescom 2020, plenty of innovations in games software and important hardware news are expected, as well as hundreds of world, European or German premieres.
