Pikoya Returns From Gamescom

September 1, 2018

Pikoya’s Sales Account Manager, Nikita Stolsky, returned from Gamescom 2018 a couples of weeks ago, one of the largest gaming conventions in the world. Hundreds of thousands of attendees, including the public, game developers, gamer marketers and members of the media, came to the show.  It was Pikoya’s 4th time attending the event taking place annually at the Koelnmesse, or Cologne Exhibition Centre, in Cologne, Germany. Exhibitors at this year’s event included Microsoft, Bethesda Softworks, Epic Games, Blizzard Entertainment and Electronic Arts.

This year’s Gamescom was my first one and I was totally blown away by the scope of it. All of the gaming industry gathered in one place. A place where you get hold of many opportunities and get to meet existing clients from all over the world in person.  I frequented both the business and the entertainment areas in order to check out the latest trends in gaming.  The opening day of Gamescom also happened to be my birthday and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it!
