About Games Convention 2011

The Games Convention sometimes called the Leipzig Games Convention, and abbreviated as GC, is an annual video game event in Leipzig, Germany, first held in 2002. Besides videogames, the event also covers Infotainment, Hardware and Edutainment. Its concept was created by the Leipziger Messe (Leipzig Fair) in cooperation with Bundesverband für Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware (German Federal Association for Entertainment Software) amongst others.

With 183,000 visitors, 2,600 journalists and 368 exhibitors from 25 countries in 2006, the Games Convention rivals the Tokyo Game Show as the biggest games event in the world. By comparison, both the Leipzig and Tokyo shows, where gamers of all ages can visit the show floor, are three times the size of the trade-only 2006 E3 show in Los Angeles. The Business Centre at Leipzig is reserved for professional visitors. In 2008, the Games Convention had a record of 203,000 visitors.

The conference takes place in a sprawling modern complex of exhibition halls in Leipzig, Germany.

To help identify younger visitors, coloured bracelets are handed out to attendees, indicating their age: “12 years and older” (green), “16 years and older” (blue) and “18 years and older” (red). These colours correspond to the age indicators used by the USK, the German version of PEGI or ESRB.
