Located in Cologne, gamescom is Europe’s major trade show for computer and video games, and one of the most important events in the gaming industry worldwide. The upcoming gamescom 2020 will be staged on 25 - 29 August at Messe Cologne. A new attendance record was registered at the 2019 edition - 1,153 exhibitors and 373,000 visitors - gaming enthusiasts and professionals. The previous edition was the most international so far, but the expectations are that gamescom 2020 will see even further growth.
In 2020, Koelnmesse GmbH will launch gamescom's first regional satellite event - gamescom asia. This first edition will take place from 15 to 18 October 2020 at Suntec Singapore.

What is new for gamescom 2020
The novelties at gamescom 2019 included something special - the indie village area, accompanied by the Media Indie Exchange (MIX). The presence of indie games were more prominent than ever before, thanks to this new feature. Before meeting with the general audience, developers from across the globe presented their indie titles to journalists and industry professionals at the exclusive MIX event.
Visitors of gamescom 2019 Cologne were also treated to a new event arena (Hall 11.3), as well as a premiering gamescom: Opening Night Live show in English. We are eager to find out what the organisers are planning for the upcoming 2020 edition!
