Important information for trade visitors

The trade visitor character in the business area and on the Trade Visitor and Media Day of gamescom is very important to the exhibitors and Koelnmesse GmbH.

Trade visitors have to prove their industry affiliation when purchasing their admission tickets. To this end, trade visitors need to provide a commercial register extract or trade licence, etc., which proves that they are professionally involved with the development, production or sale/trade of games and/or gaming accessories. A voucher for a trade visitor admission ticket does not suffice as proof of industry affiliation!

Trade visitors must be at the age of 18 at least!

We wish to point out that dogs and other pets are not allowed to enter the trade fair grounds.
