Cologne Messe announced the achievements of Gamescom 2022, which was held from 23rd to 28th.
Gameskom is one of the world’s largest game shows along with the E3, and has maintained its status by quickly converting to digital since 19 Pandermic in 2020. In particular, ‘Opening Night Live’, which is a host of The Game Awards, Jeff Kayley, and the new work, which is unveiled on the night of the Gamekom, has become an event that decorates the summer of the game industry.
Gamescom 2022, which was offline in three years, was reported that 265,000 visitors visited the site in more than 100 countries. Cologne Messe added that the number of tickets was limited from the beginning, as Corona 19 was not yet terminated, but it had a record as the ticket was sold out every day. In addition, about 1,100 exhibitors visited the site in 53 countries, and more than 25,000 officials visited B2B. In addition, more than 100,000 people participated in the Gamescom City Festival, including many visitors.
This Gamescom has achieved more than 100 million views online, with various events such as ‘Opening Night Live’, which has become the main event since the corona 19 pandermic, as well as offline. In particular, it recorded more than 130 million views on Saturday evening alone, and 12 million views were recorded as a single view of ‘Opening Night Live’.
Gerald Sheese Cologne Messe said, For this re-start, many partners and the entire Gamescom team have finally prepared the Gamescom 2022 again in Cologne Messe, he said. It was a sign that Cologne was back in the international event. The Gamescom 2022 has been developed beyond our expectations, and the success of the Gamescom 2022, which is a hybrid, will be a green light in the future of Gamespom.
Meanwhile, Cologne Messe announced that it will proceed with Gamescom 2023 from August 23 to 27, 2023. Gamescom 2023 will also be held online and offline hybrids, including opening night live starting on the 22nd.
