Visitors to previous editions of gamescom have in many cases complained about the overcrowded halls, where progress was hardly possible. For this reason, the Cologne Trade Fair has announced that gamescom 2019, which will take place from 21 to 24 August, will have more space to make the stay of the numerous visitors more pleasant.
According to the recently published hall plan, the area was increased by five percent from 201,000 square meters in 2018 to 210,000 square meters in 2019. The new area is to be kept free above all for visitors and not occupied by additional exhibitors.
In addition, it was announced that, especially in the Entertainment Area, a redesign of the hall plan would ensure that hotspots would be better distributed so as not to concentrate crowds of visitors on individual areas. The package is rounded off by wider aisles between the stands and the individual halls as well as new catering and lounge areas for relaxation and dining.
