Gamescom Asia 2023's Entertainment Zone To Shift To Physical Format (19 to 22 October 2023)

Gamescom Asia has officially announced their 2023 show dates! The premiere gaming convention in South-East Asia will run for 4 days, from 19 – 22 October 2023.

Last year, gaming fans from the region were extremely disappointed to learn that the Entertainment Zone (B2C) was only held virtually through 2 livestreamed shows. Despite that, Gamecom Asia 2022's Trade Zone hosted 88 exhibitors and sponsors, and received over 3,200 trade visitors from about 70 countries.

For this year's event, Gamescom Asia's organiser Koelnmesse Singapore has proclaimed that the Entertainment Zone segment will open its doors to a physical format. After all, Covid-19 multi-ministry task force has recently announced that Red Dot Island's Dorscon level will be lowered to Green. This signifies that the health risk of the Covid-19 disease is now considered mild on the island. Moreover, mask-wearing while on public transport is no longer mandatory. (YAY!)
