Gamescom 2022: the body show makes kid great return and goes green


The year 2022 should mark the return of many events. Among them, we will have the pleasure of seeing Gamescom which will take place in August, mixing digital and face-to-face. While there are obviously still many details to communicate, here is the first information concerning Gamescom 2022.

Gamescom 2022 child return

Cologne will welcome back Gamescom from 24 to 28 next August. If the event promises a vast digital program, there will also be a technical fair. There will obviously be different stands there, the possibility of meeting developers and several events and activities will be organised.

The Opening Evening Live conference hosted by Geoff Keighley will of course be part of the lift the veil on many games. She will be followed on Tuesday 24 August.

So that things run smoothly under the best conditions, several measures were taken. In particular, there will be improved management of entries, digital management of queues and even extra-wide aisles to limit contact.

A concept promoting hygiene and safety has been tested and proven by Koelnmesse on numerous occasions and will be deployed for Gamescom 2022, always sober in harmony with all the regulations currently in force and guaranteeing at the same time safety and a high quality of stay.

Gamescom goes green

On the sidelines of the Gamesom announcement 2022, we also learn that the show will this year be more respectful of the environment and will pay attention to its carbon footprint.

Flin Falk, General Manager of the German Games Industry Association, is particularly proud to present the Gamescom goes green initiative:

With our Gamescom goes green initiative een, we will make Gamescom a special and climate-friendly event with visitors and exhibitors. We therefore want to be not only a beacon for the many initiatives in favor of environmental protection and climate action in the international games industry, but also a pioneer for international events in general.

Koelnmesse and the German born Video games Industry Association will offset their CO2 emissions through two certified carbon offset projects, cooperation with ClimatePartner en. Visitors can also contribute to this effort by making a donation or buying a green ticket, thus promoting the development of the Gamescom forest project, launched in 2020.

Remember that Gamescom will be, along with the Tokyo Game Show, one of the few events to welcome the public this year. The organizers of E3 have already announced that there will be no physical show in Los Angeles and everything suggests that the event is not ready to resurface.

We hope to have some nice surprises in August and wish the organizers that things happen in the best possible conditions.
