Location: Cologne Trade Fair, Messeplatz 1, 50679 Cologne, Germany
gamescom means pure entertainment. Visitors can look forward to a diverse, high quality supporting programme with many gaming, music and show acts, both at the trade fair and throughout Cologne.
On the fairgrounds there are sections with different areas of thematic focus. These include, for example, the outdoor area with summery beach feeling, the family & friends section especially for the youngest visitors or the gamescom cosplay village, a separate section for cosplayer.
And the whole city is also celebrating: at the gamescom city festival you will find a party atmosphere with many music acts, while the gamescom camp, with evening programme, Chill Out Zone and Action Area, offers its guests much more than just overnight accommodations.
The gamescom announced that its 2019 show will kick off in grand style with “gamescom: Opening Night Live,” a new live event and stream produced by Geoff Keighley, host and producer of The Game Awards, the video game industry’s annual awards show.
gamescom: Opening Night Live, produced in English, will air live in front of more than 1,000 fans in Cologne, Germany to give gamers worldwide an overview of what to expect during gamesom week. This brand-new program will feature announcements from major game publishers and independent developers, world premieres of new game footage and special guest appearances from the stars of the gaming industry.
