Gamescom, one of the largest tech and video game expos in the world, will be returning to Singapore this year with gamescom asia.

Unlike last year's, which was previously held as a hybrid convention with only a physical Trade Zone, this year's gamescom asia will also feature a physical Entertainment Zone for the first time.

The physical Trade and Entertainment Zones will be held at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre from 20 to 22 October 2022, while there will also be online segments that will run from 19 to 23 October 2022.

Companies like Gamedriver, TikTok, Microsoft Xbox, will appear as sponsors, while PlayStation and even 9GAG are among some of the names that are joining the event this year.

The pre and post event online shows, PRIMETIME and STUDIO, will return again as teasers and extended content for global audiences.

Gamescom asia’s Trade Zone will consist of an Expo, a Trade Conference and Networking area. There will also be a Developer-Publisher-Investor Speed Dating event from 20 to 22 October.
