Intensified security measures at gamescom 2017

- Our request: leave bags and rucksacks at home

The security and prevention measures at gamescom 2017 will remain the same as in the previous year. The measures apply for all participants of gamescom: exhibitors, visitors and media representatives.

In concrete terms this means: if not absolutely necessary, please leave bags and rucksacks and item of all kinds that you don't urgently need for your visit to gamescom at home in order to keep the waiting times down to a minimum. This is because control measures, incl. bag checks, will be carried out at the entrances before entering the fair grounds. Please expect longer queuing times and support us in carrying out the control measures by bringing no or as little luggage as possible with you to the fair. For planning your arrival: the security controls start at 7:00 a.m. Queues must be expected.

Dear visitors:

As a trade fair organisation and organiser of gamescom, it is our duty to organise the framework conditions for the trade fair participants as efficiently as possible and to satisfy the needs of our guests. The need for security remains a big topic for all participants. It is our aim to meet this requirement by the safety measures and at the same time limiting gamescom in all its facets as little as possible.

We hope for your understanding and your support so that gamescom can also be a successful 360 degree event in 2017 that is full of entertainment and a fantastic shared experience for all participants.
