Gamescom is the world’s largest video games event, which combines industry and consumer audiences, creating a unique opportunity to do business and hit potential players, over the course of five days – 21st-25th August, 2013.
UKIE, has created a hugely successful games pavilion for British games companies over the last few years, working with UK Trade & Industry and Scottish Development International to create a nationwide presence at an event which incorporates both industry and consumer audiences.
For the 2013 event UKIE has put together a number of packages for British games companies which provide space within the pavilion and a complete package of support services to ensure every company can take advantage of Gamescom’s huge audience and precise focus.
There are a variety of options from sponsorship, to individual tables or kiosks for smaller companies, to larger dedicated and private meeting rooms. Participation also gets your company access to the show, inclusion in all marketing materials, possible UKTI funding of £1500, free WiFi and branding across the stand itself.
The Early Bird packages will vanish at the end of this week on Friday 31st May.
You can find out more and register your interest on UKIE’s dedicated Gamescom website.
Scottish Development International have a presence within the wider UK pavilion, but are not organising things separately, so this is your only opportunity to get involved.
While GDC and E3 may have the mystique and reputation within the global games industry, Gamescom has quietly been building a lot of credibility with companies who want to do business – and show off their latest games.
If you’ve not attended Gamescom before, or if you’re in two minds about attending in 2013, this is the ideal opportunity to go as part of a UK-wide initiative to show just how innovative and exciting the games industry is in Britain.
