The gamescom congress is Europe’s leading conference on the potential of computer and video games for society as well as the economy. This year’s congress on 21 August 2019 provides visitors with an impressively wide range of topics, and will demonstrate that gaming technology will be helpful in mastering digitalisation in almost all economic and societal fields. The congress will be held for the eleventh time in 2019, as part of gamescom, the largest event for computer and video games worldwide.
With 870 participants and speakers from all over the world, the gamescom congress in 2018 served as a digitalisation think tank that extended far beyond the gaming sector. The conference is geared towards creative artists, educators, politicians, scientists, journalists, and representatives from all industries.
How can games impart knowledge? Where can industry benefit from games? How do games influence how we coexist? These and many more questions will be answered during the schedule of over 30 events.
The congress will be hosted by Koelnmesse GmbH and game e.V., the German Games Industry Association. The gamescom congress is sponsored by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the City of Cologne.
