The organisers of Gamecom 2010 have announced a selection of new online services for the conference.
Online matchmaking and appointment organisers are to be introduced to the event's website for the first time, enabling visitors to compile schedules well ahead of the August event taking place in Cologne.
"When it comes to matchmaking, one can login to the website already in advance to the trade fair by using the individual trade visitor data and contact respectively the relevant exhibitors of Gamescom," said the executive president of Koelnmesse, Oliver P Kuhrt.
"With the online appointment planning tool in the exhibitor data base, appointments at Gamescom can be fixed directly online."
As an additional service, media representatives will also be able to get accredited for Gamescom at the press counter of GDC Europe in order to visit both events easily, while a dedicated press lounge will be set up in the business area.
Gamescom 2010 will take place from August 18-21. Further information on the event and the new online tools can be found on the official website.
