Exhibition Hall

Gamescom is held at the massive Koelnmesse exhibition center, covering an area of 700,000 square meters, making it the largest gaming show globally. The exhibition is divided into B2C, B2B, merch store, and event areas.

  • B2B Halls: Halls 2-4
  • B2C Halls: Halls 6-10
  • Merchandise Hall: Hall 5
  • Gamescom ONL1 Event: Hall 7

You’d better download the following Gamescom hall plan images on your phone in advance!

Navigating the vast Koelnmesse center can be challenging, so it is advisable to save the map on your phone. Entry points are located at the east, west, south, and north gates.

Make sure to determine which entrance is closest to your destination hall. Maps are also available at hall entrances, where “Level 1” and “Level 2” indicate the floors.

Since the B2B area spans multiple floors, plan your movements with ample time, especially if you have scheduled meetings. For shortcuts, refer to the additional post linked in the guide.

Booking a Booth

With the early bird period concluded, booth applications now follow regular pricing. Booth costs at Gamescom include rental fees, energy costs, deposits (facility usage fees), and mandatory contributions to the German Trade Fair Industry Fund.

Booth applications are only accepted online. Note that costs differ if you only rent a B2B booth, so verify prices on the site in advance. Key regulations for booth rental include:

  1. B2B rental cannot exceed 1.5 times the B2C rental area.
  2. Consumer-related (end-user) game companies must apply for a B2C booth to rent a B2B booth.
  3. Booth allocation is at the discretion of the organizer.
  4. Deposits (facility usage fees) are settled after the exhibition concludes.

Once your booth rental is confirmed, it’s just the beginning. Ensure you understand booth installation regulations, design restrictions, and undergo the design approval process.
Working with an agency can help navigate these requirements efficiently.
