    Gamescom Asia to Be Postponed to 2021

    Gamescom asia, originally planned for debut in Singapore this October, will move its inaugural edition to 2021.

    The first edition of gamescom asia has been postponed to 14 – 17 October 2021. Up until the COVID-19 pandemic started, response for the event had been overwhelming. With strong interest and bookings from AAA game publishers, developers and country pavilions, preparation for gamescom asia was on track to deliver a world-class event.

    “As much as we would have loved to bring the event to life this October, the current global crisis has forced us to recalibrate our wants for gamescom asia. The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is paramount. Moreover, for an inaugural event, we felt it was important to give the regional gaming community and fans the full experience of what an international event of this scale would be like, and not anything less. Today, we confirmed our decision to postpone the live event to 2021 instead. The team has been in conversation extensively with all stakeholders, partners and the Singapore government over the last few weeks to decide on the best course of action for the safety of all our participants. While the common sentiment was hopefulness for large-scale events to go back to normalcy, we agreed that the world is not situationally ready for this to happen. With that, we will have to adapt and refocus our efforts on 2021, and offer digital engagements leading up to that date in support of the Asian games industry.”

    Mathias Kuepper – Managing Director of Koelnmesse Singapore, the organiser of gamescom asia

    Gamescom asia is the first satellite event of the world’s largest event for computer and video games: gamescom. The premier event aims to showcase the diversity of gaming within the world’s fastest-growing games market – Southeast Asia, while covering the global spectrum of the games industry, gaming culture, esports, regional and international releases and more.

    “We welcome Koelnmesse’s continued support in these challenging times, and are committed to partner with Koelnmesse to deliver a successful gamescom asia in 2021. The inaugural event will be a highlight in Singapore’s events calendar and provide new business opportunities for local and regional companies. We look forward to welcoming delegates to the event next year,”

    Mr Andrew Phua – Executive Director, Exhibitions and Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board

    Gamescom asia 2021 will be held from 14 – 17 October 2021 in Singapore at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre. For more information on the event, visit www.gamescom.asia or follow gamescom asia on major social media platforms.
