Dismantling 2017

Important information for exhibitors:
Shortened dismantling periods for gamescom 2017


The dates for gamescom 2017 were rescheduled to the last complete week of August in consultation with the industry (BIU) and the advisory council. The world's largest event for computer and video games takes place in 2017 from 22 to 26 August (new day sequence: Tuesday to Saturday). However, the rescheduling of gamescom doesn't mean the rescheduling of all subsequent trade fair dates. Correspondingly, these remain as scheduled: gamescom moves closer to the following event. This means shortened dismantling periods in all halls in comparison to 2016. These must absolutely be observed. An application for extended dismantling periods is not possible.

In order to ensure a smooth transition between gamescom and the following event, we have compiled the most important changes and information here.

Dismantling periods for each hall

Arrival and parking

The traffic information guide provides information on arrival at the fair grounds and the appropriate parking/ truck parking spaces which need to be used prior to entering the fair grounds.

IMPORTANT: Please note that dismantling can take place both on Sundays and during school holiday periods. There are therefore limitations (truck prohibition). To the extent that your dismantling requires trips on the weekend and/or during the school holidays, please acquire the appropriate special approvals at an early date. You will find an example application for North Rhine-Westphalia here (.pdf) .
