More visitors, more exhibitors - the Gamescom exposition in Cologne has again surpassed its previous year's records and asserted itself as the world's most important gaming trade fair.
Hardly any other IT topic currently attracts as many visitors as gaming. This was shown last week at Gamescom. Despite tropical temperatures, around 370,000 visitors crowded into the exhibition halls in Cologne. Thus, in its 10th anniversary year, the gaming event once again surpassed the record set in the previous year. The entire Gamescom week attracted more than 500,000 visitors.
»The increase of 15,000 visitors from an increased number of countries impressively underline the great international appeal of Gamescom and the growing interest in this unique 360-degree experience event. With an increase in exhibitors of almost 13 percent, it presented an unprecedented range of products and services. Thanks to world premieres and hundreds of game highlights, Gamescom convinced as a new products platform«, explained Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse GmbH.
