Partnership with Indie MEGABOOTH starts this year with a booth
in the business area, where Indie Developers can get information
and integration. At gamescom 2014, an Indie MEGABOOTH in
entertainment area is planned.
After the success of the Indie MEGABOOTH group exhibits in the
U.S. in the last two years, Overlord Kelly Wallick has been in
talks with gamescom executives to bring the initiative to Europe.
In 2013, Koelnmesse and Indie MEGABOOTH offer Indie Game Developers
a contact platform in the business area (Hall 4.2, Booth D-027),
where they can get information about participation in the MEGABOOTH
Project at gamescom for 2014. Next year the organizers want to
realize a MEGABOOTH area in the entertainment area.
Tim Endres, Project Manager of gamescom: “We felt the
growing interest and importance of Indie game developers throughout
our roadshow in Europe and beyond the last couple of years, so we
decided to give Indies their own platform within gamescom”.
Gamescom is the go-to destination for gamers in Europe, and
traditionally covers all games related target groups. So it is only
logical and timely to build a designated area for Indie Game
"It's the obvious choice for bringing the MEGABOOTH to Europe",
says Rami Ismail, Secretary of Propaganda, "gamescom itself has
been looking to expand their offering to include indie games and
this seems like a perfect match."
"The indie scene is a global movement and even though the Indie
MEGABOOTH has always featured international developers, we would
like to emphasize this by introducing the initiative in locations
outside of the US." says Wallick.
"gamescom is an amazing venue for something like the Indie
MEGABOOTH, and we're excited to be talking about bringing the
MEGABOOTH to gamescom in 2014," concludes Ismail.
To get access to the business area, Indie Game Developers who do
not have a trade visitors ticket, have to obtain a private visitors
ticket plus an email confirmation of Kelly Wallick or her team.
