Federal Minister of Economics and Climate Protection Robert Habeck will attend the official opening of Gamescom 23 on August 2023. This was announced today by Koelnmesse and game – the association of the German games industry.

After Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck was unable to attend his announced Gamescom visit at short notice last year and instead sent a detailed video message, he will travel to the trade visitor and media day this year.

In addition to the official opening event in the late afternoon of August 23, the Federal Minister of Economics will take a tour the following day to get an impression of the current trends in the games industry.

"We are very much looking forward to welcoming Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck to Cologne in 2023, after the positive messages we received last year. Together we will take a look at the current developments in the games industry. We also want to talk about the challenges faced by games companies in Germany and how Germany as a games location can be made even more competitive internationally,” says Felix Falk, Managing Director of game – the Association of the German Games Industry.

"The visit of Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck to Gamescom underlines the great importance of Gamescom - as the world's largest games event and Europe's most important business platform. Gamescom has long since developed into an international flagship for Germany as a trade fair and event location,” says Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse GmbH.
