Gamescom 2012 has officially come to an end and now all those involved will go back to their daily routines, even our own Mark Coupe who attended the event (you can check out what he saw here). To really clarify how successful the event in Cologne, Germany was, organizers released the official attendee count. There were more than 275,000 gaming fans making it to the event. WOW!
“The concept of Gamescom has borne fruit as a leading international trade fair, it presents all types and aspects of games for all platforms,” says Maximilian Schenk, managing director of the German Association for Interactive Entertainment Software. “We would like to thank most sincerely the gamer community, the visitors, exhibitors and partners, the City of Cologne, the State of North Rhine Westphalia, our partner country South Korea and especially Koelnmesse. We can all be very proud of Gamescom 2012 – and we intend to continue in the same vein in 2013.”
The Gamescom organizers also tallied that trade attendees arrived from 83 different countries and over 5,300 games writers took account of what transpired and shared through the thousands of gaming websites. Not a bad few days for gaming I must say.
