As previously announced the Gothenburg Games concept will be reshaped. With too few participants signed on for the exhibition area to uphold our quality standards, we will increase our focus on esport.
We are dedicating ourselves to create the best gaming event possible with the Gothenburg Games Esport Challenge finals at the heart of it. By keeping the academic and industry areas we are positive that the event will be a rich experience for visitors and participants alike.
New dates: November 19-21. To attract more of the gamer core market we’re slighty changing the dates, making Gothenburg Games Esport Challenge a parallel event with the Student & Knowledge fair. Student & Knowledge is Sweden's largest fair providing inspiration and educational guidance, an event attracting about 10,000 young people aged 17-25 annually.
Companies providing content for the academic and industry part of the event are BRG, Sweden Game Arena, Dataspelsbranschen and others. Confusion, Retrospelsmässan, GothCon, Sverok are also still part the event, providing activities and happenings.
We still offer the opportunity to reach gamer markets, either through exhibiting your product or hosting an activity at the event. Contact us for more information.
Gothenburg Games Esport Challenge November 19-21 at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in Gothenburg.
“Gothenburg is an important city on the world gaming map – home to research, education, gaming events, traditions, and successful businesses that attract foreign investment and millions of customers. It’s high time that Gothenburg had a world-class gaming festival, and I expect Gothenburg Games to be just that.”
Per Strömbäck, spokesman, Swedish Games Industry
Gothenburg is the friendliest city in Sweden. There is always something going on and the city is small enough and big enough at the same time. Read more about different hotels, restaurants, events and much more.
We are proud that people from all parts of the world choose the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Gothia Towers to meet, work, do business, grow relationships, develop products and ideas, eat well and overnight in comfort.
