Past gaming events: gamescom 2019 (quick overview with social media)

After two days of devcom 2019, gamescom 2019 opened its doors to the press and later the general public in Cologne, and while trying to recuperate, I’ll share some (social media) impressions of the past 4 days as a teaser for more article-things to come.

The devcom 2019 overview with social media was a good way to provide some short information about the event, even if it will take some time for the full article to be published here. The same holds true with the latest gamescom, even more so because of a tight press appointment schedule and an even more crowded consumer area trip yesterday.

Fortunately I found a way (and even some time) to share some updates with EMR’s Twitter page AND EMR’s Facebook page, even if the synchronization thing didn’t work anymore and I had to post the Facebook updates manually again. Anyway, with so much going on (and so much to write about and so many photos to select), this Twitter summary should give you an idea of what was going on both in the business and public areas from August 20-23.

On the way to #gamescom2019, second day, very early without trains packed full of people and with hopefully faster entry to the venue later

You know #gamescom2019 is open to the general public if you’re listening to a bunch of kids constantly using the f-word for super-coolness.

At #gamescom2019 venue, but press is not allowed to enter yet. Oh well… good thing I didn’t make any appointments too early.

August 22

On the way to #gamescom2019 for third and final day of press appointments. Tomorrow finally consumer areas.

So far it seems that going to Cologne #gamescom by train has been the most relaxed without throngs of people crowding it.

On #gamescom2019 venue, this time trying north entrance. At least less chaotic but still waiting with rest of press to get inside now.

Goodbye to #gamescom2019,thx to all the publishers, developers and PR people for some great games and even greater conversations in 4 days

So yeah, lots of cool stuff has happened during the week and even if it will take a lot of writing work and time to give it the full articles treatment, I’m looking forward to remember all the good games and talks with people at gamescom 2019. Thanks in advance to all the PR people I’ve been in touch with for making these press appointments possible!
