Experience gamescom 2021 on site

In 2020, we set new standards with gamescom and our purely digital concept. Thanks to our shows, our partners and the many collaborations, there were countless opportunities for you to immerse yourself in the gamescom universe online. But you were very clear in your feedback: In addition to digital, gamescom also includes the opportunity to try out the latest game titles on site and immerse yourself in the games world. That's why gamescom 2021 is to be held as a hybrid event, combining the best of both worlds, physical and digital.

For your on-site experience in Cologne, this means that you will have an entertainment area specially designed for gaming fans with a clear focus on trying out new game titles live in our halls.

However, in view of the difficult-to-predict Corona situation, we will only be able to let a reduced number of visitors into the halls. Nevertheless, we will make your stay safe and appealing at the same time, for example with digital queue management and our tried-and-tested #B-SAFE4business security concept.

We are also currently planning an event arena that will provide space for special program items such as e-sports tournaments or cosplay shows.

As soon as we can tell you more about the on-site program, you'll find the information right here.
