Although I didn’t get it in person last year, it was held in digital form GymscomAs in previous years in Cologne, where I walked on my feet every day, the organizers booked a 2020 event held exclusively in the online space due to the Coronavirus. However, both exhibitors and visitors made clear that one very important element of the exhibition was the ability to experience the latest games on site.
Based on the comments, Koelnmesse employees are currently considering the concept of a hybrid event, i.e. gamescom, which will take place at the end of August this year, which will include digital and on-site elements. But of course, all with the right precautions, as the virus is unlikely to ever disappear from our lives by summer.
It is also open to the general public Entertainment area Far fewer people will be admitted to its territory to obtain the necessary distance between visitors. Some kind of digital parking solution will be provided, for example, everyone will be able to be notified on their cell phone if they are then going to try a game. Programs such as cosplay competitions or esports tournaments are held in a separate area.

The Divcom And the Gamecom conference The conferences will also use a hybrid solution, there will be events on site and there will be programs in the online space as well.

There will be fewer exhibitors and visitors alike, otherwise it will not be possible to guarantee sufficient distance. Ticket sales will start in May.
Of course, if the epidemiological situation develops in such a way that there will be no possibility of on-site events, then Gamescom for this year will also be held in a completely digital format. ■
