gamescom asia, the first Asian satellite event of the world’s largest computer and video games festival, gamescom, is set to launch its hybrid event from 14 till 17 October 2021 in Singapore. This event will be a prelude to the full-scale convention that is set to take place in 2022 where fans and industry players will get to enjoy the whole host of existing events featuring the latest products and games from developers.
Divided between the Trade and Entertainment Zones, industry players will be able to participate in the event through a hybrid offering for brands from 14-15 October 2021. Set to be held digitally and physically at Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre, participants will be able to meet and network with visionaries from the Southeast Asian gaming industry. With a focus on game publishing, development and the future growth of the video games sector in Asia and beyond, the Trade Conference will feature prominent international speakers from Axie Infinity creators Sky Mavis, That’s No Moon, Cygames, Square Enix, miHoYo, Zynga and more.
Powered by AMD, the virtual consumer segment will kickstart with gamescom asia PRIMETIME, on 15 October 2021, premiering new games and trailers from the region and around the world, while giving fans a sneak preview of what’s to come with the all-digital programs under gamescom asia STUDIO that will take place from 16-17 October 2021. Streams and the gamescom asia VAULT on-demand will be broadcasted via the event’s Entertainment Zone platform as well as YouTube and TikTok, who are this year’s main Platform Partners.
“We are thrilled to finally bring gamescom to the shores of Singapore and Asia this October. We have been working hard to deliver to our fans and industry players a program that is not only quintessentially the core of Asian gaming, but also one that brings the gamescom brand closer to the region. For this hybrid event, we have put together an engaging event for our regional and global audiences and will be announcing more exciting activities in the upcoming weeks,” said Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director of Koelnmesse Singapore, the organisers of gamescom asia.
The event organisers will be working closely with the Singapore Tourism Board to prioritise the health and safety of all event participants. The hybrid event, to be held at Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre, will adhere to the necessary Safe Management Measures (SMMs).
