Overview
More
Held in Cologne each year, Gamescom is the world’s largest gaming event, so naturally every Mario Kart master, Nintendo wizard and console ninja comes to Cologne. Currently in its 6th year, Gamescom takes place at the end of August, and is where the latest and greatest in gaming technology from the world’s biggest gaming companies can be found. Think special reveals, exclusive info and computer game premieres. While parts of the event are only intended for business heads, the music acts and gaming platforms on offer are very appealing to the general public. Also, rumour has it that once the conference is wrapped up for the day, there’s some cheeky gambling to be done.

Huge conference that is amazing for anyone who loves gaming and/or everything around it. All platforms and major producers are represented with a stand. Be prepared to queue for a while if you want to try out an upcoming game from a big producer (hint:...More

Massive amounts of things to do, many games to try out (if you have the patience to queue!) & many exhibitors to tempt you. Only downside being a lack of ATM's - honestly in a venue this size they were conspicuous by their absence! In...More
