With its optimized schedule, ticketing and business area devcom 2018 set to surpass last year’s hugely successful inaugural event
Kick off your gamescom week with devcom 2018 set to take place on Sunday and Monday, 19th and 20th August
Following a successful 2017 debut, developer conference devcom will increase its diversity and optimization across several fields this year. This was the goal that event organizer Aruba Events GmbH, a subsidiary of Computec Media Group (CMG), announced today. The key change to this year is the developer conference’s timeframe: devcom will now run over two days and the schedule will be more streamlined to prevent overlapping with gamescom business days. Pathfinding and ticketing will also be improved. devcom is held in cooperation with the German Games Industry Association (BIU) and Koelnmesse on Sunday, 19th and Monday, 20th August.
These improvements will not only enable visitors of devcom 2018 to attend more panels, discussions, talks and workshops, but will give them more time for additional networking. As such, this year’s business area will be enhanced and offer more space. The indie area has also been extended enabling Respawn to be fully integrated into the devcom program.
Hans Ippisch, CEO of CMG and Aruba Events GmbH, commented: “After the successful premiere of devcom in 2017 we want to improve every aspect of the event. As such, we specifically optimized the concept together with our partners BIU and Koelnmesse. We’ve taken the best elements of Respawn and seamlessly integrated them into devcom. This way we can present a thoughtful conference experience over two days, which incorporates into the gamescom week even better.”
Further details about the expanded team, ticket categories and the first confirmed speakers will be released soon.
