Although most of our plans to attend a number of international gaming events have been postponed due to Coronavirus, we are thrilled that some event organisers are going ahead and seeing it as an opportunity to go completely virtual for the first time ever! We are therefore excited to be taking part in the following online industry game expo’s this Summer:

  • GDC, the Game Developers Conference from August 4th to the 6th.

The new GDC Summer will see sessions, networking and expo activities available via a robust digital platform. The organisers are seeing it as a new exciting opportunity to open their doors wider, offering education and business functions to a global audience at an accessible price point. Attendees will be able to join webinars with live speakers, access a number of interactive meeting tools, and of course take part in the important pre and post conference socials activities.

  • GamesCom 2020 from August 27th to the 30th.

The world’s largest event for computer and video games which usually takes place in Cologne, will instead expand its offering across a digital platform. Starting with Opening Night Live on the 27th August followed by three packed days of program, surprising shows, numerous world premieres, announcements and special promotions that will set the entire games world all abuzz.
