The "Next Level of Entertainment" was the Motto of this years Gamescom. And also taking the slogan "Celebrate the games" has been repeatedly published in connection with the Gamescom.
In addition to games "Just cause 3" and "Black ops 3" course was also with great excitement the game "Star wars battlefront" expected and even chosen the best game of the Gamescom, 2015. The jury was convinced and chose this game to be the best.
Sleep was a problem in Cologne
Since the Overnight situation in Cologne always will be dramatic and hotel prices rose in the air, the organizers have already made some thoughts on the subject in advance. The Gamescom Camp was born and fed hundreds of visitors with an inexpensive place to sleep in Cologne Deutz. But they had to spend the night in tents. Who does not, however, like to sleep in a tent and wants to relieve himself in a-potty, which should look at an early stage. Hostels are booked in advance, as the date for the next Gamescom in 2016 is already certain.

You can also expect numerous bookings from new exhibitors at the fair. In addition, many well-known exhibitors are of course expected at the fair.
The early bird period ended a few days ago. Various exhibitors have been able to register for the trade fair since December. In return, they also received square meter tariffs that were discounted. Exhibitors were thus able to secure their place for "Gamescom 2023" at a reasonable price. The organizers (Games Association and Koelnmesse) gave an initial assessment.
There were more registrations for this fair. A full 10 percent more registrations than before came about. The last fair took place in spring 2022. The "Gamescom 2022" took place without restrictions, after the uncertainties. The exhibitors will come to the fair from 39 countries. There were also commitments for the 'country pavilions'. This is where service providers and game manufacturers meet. The business area is available for China, France, Great Britain, Switzerland, South Korea, America and Canada. This year's partner country is Brazil. Other delegations will also appear.
From August 20th, the "Devcom" will also take place, a Gamescom developer conference. The organizers announced that hundreds of participants have registered. However, the association and the trade fair company have not yet given any exact figures. The names of the exhibitors have also not been announced to date.
It is anticipated with excitement whether Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Activision Blizzard, Sony PlayStation and Take Two Interactive will participate again in 2023. In the previous year, 2022, these exhibitors canceled. It will be interesting to see if they will return to Gamescom this year. In 2022, major customers such as Tencent Games, Ubisoft, THQ Nordic, Microsoft Xbox, Bandai Namco Entertainment and Plaion were exhibitors at Gamescom.
Games Economy Information is leaking out that many brands have long had concrete plans to appear. Some vendors will announce their decision to participate at a later date. Oliver Frese is Managing Director of "Koelnmesse". He was enthusiastic about Gamescom 2022 and raved about the comeback of the fair, which was strong. The early book phase was characterized by more than rich interest. This is because last year's fair was a success. Frese promises that the community is in for a lot of surprises. A return of big brands that haven't been around in 2022 will definitely be a big theme.
Once again this year there will be well-known market leaders at the trade fair. There will be new segments at the show such as: streaming and tabletop games. Felix Falk is Game Managing Director and is already looking forward to seeing the community again at Gamescom. After the two years of the pandemic and its dry spells, the trade fair last year was terrific.
After an "early bird phase", there were excellent results. Plans that have been restricted are no longer in the way. The date for advance ticket sales for private and trade visitors has not yet been set. The Gamescom 2023 opening date is Tuesday, August 22. A trailer review will open the fair with an "OpeningNight" live.
Wednesday, August 23rd is the actual start of Gamescom. There will be political tours. A media day with trade visitors will be organised, which is a tradition. There is also a small contingent for end users. Last year in about 265,000 visitors came to the fair and these are only the official data.
