GameStart announces partnership with gamescom
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the inaugural gamescom asia, which will be coming to Singapore in 2020!
When we started GameStart in 2014, our goal was to create a gaming event that was inspired by the larger shows like PAX, Tokyo Game Show and Gamescom, where gamers could come to try the latest games and meet fellow gamers. We also wanted to put Singapore and Southeast Asia on the world map, as a region that was at the time seen as small and less important than the more developed countries in Asia. We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response from the gaming community, and each year we welcome visitors not just from Singapore, but also the region, for two days of gaming and fun.
GameStart itself has evolved over the years, at first catering only for the hardcore gaming crowd, but as gaming habits have changed, mobile has helped bring in a whole new segment of casual and core gamers, the rising popularity of esports and tabletop gaming have also allowed us to reach out to and work with new communities each year. We are happy and thankful for the various communities we’ve worked with this six years, and for our visitors who have all played a part in Senpai noticing us.
We will be looking for a new home for GameStart in the Asia region, and have plans to get back to our roots with more community-focused events planned in the region, so do watch this space for more news and updates!
In the meantime, our team is working hard to put together an awesome GameStart 2019 on 12 & 13 October, after which we will be working with the gamescom team to launch gamescom asia 2020!
