With a broad spectrum of topics and top speakers from Germany and abroad, the gamescom congress is in demand far beyond the games industry. In the years before the corona pandemic, tickets were always sold out quickly. This year, the congress will show how digital games and games technologies provide impulses for the economy and society.
