gamescom 2022: Accreditation for creators

gamescom 2022 kicks off on 24 August with gamescom: Opening Night Live and runs until 28 August. Five packed gaming days, with exciting content from our exhibitors, partners and our gamescom shows.

As an accredited creator, you will benefit from many advantages, such as free access to the event and thus to the numerous gaming companies present as well as the on-site community. We will publish more information about the benefits here at a later date.

You will be able to use the online accreditation to gain accreditation for gamescom from June 2022.

After a successful check, you will receive your confirmation and further information, for example regarding your ticket.

Please check whether you can fulfil the following guidelines, which are necessary for a creator admission ticket to be issued.

  • The most important question first: Are you already 16 years old? Due to the youth protection regulations only creators aged 16 and over are permitted.
  • Are you part of a creator network? The agencies often organise the accreditation in advance. We would therefore kindly ask you to check first before using our online tool.
  • You are your own boss? Then you've come to the right place. The following criteria are important for an accreditation:
    • Is your website regularly fed with high-quality content news and articles?
    • Was your last article posted within the last month?
    • Are you named as the Editor in your online magazine?
    • Can you identify yourself as the owner of your streaming platform?
    • Can you prove a certain amount of reach of your activities?
    • The message of your medium is clear: Games, games and games.
    • Are colleagues of your medium already accredited? We reserve the right to limit the number of authorised individuals per medium.
    • We. Accept. No. Trolls. We will not support inappropriate contents and mobbing.
