Important information for trade visitors
The trade visitor character in the business area and on the Trade Visitor and Media Day of gamescom is very important to the exhibitors and Koelnmesse GmbH.
Trade visitors have to prove their industry affiliation when purchasing their admission tickets. To this end, trade visitors need to provide a commercial register extract or trade licence, etc., which proves that they are professionally involved with the development, production or sale/trade of games and/or gaming accessories. Alternatively, an invitation from an exhibitor addressed directly to the person or the presentation of a written confirmation of an appointment with an exhibitor of the gamescom also suffices as proof. A voucher for a trade visitor admission ticket does not suffice as proof of industry affiliation!
Admission for children:
- For security reasons infants aged up to 3 years will not be granted admission the gamescom trade fair even if accompanied by their parents.
- Children aged from 4 to 6 years have free admission if accompanied by their parents.
- Children aged under 12 years will only be granted admission to the fair if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
We wish to point out that dogs and other pets are not allowed to enter the trade fair grounds.
