The international game community continues to feel the need to meet in real life, now and in the future. Why is Amsterdam the place to be for Game Events? You can read it in this blog.
The need to meet is strong in the game community. They are unique as a group, since they are virtually the only group worldwide that first met each other online and only later offline. Online gaming is of course still possible during the corona crisis, and it is also possible to organize online competitions. However, events offer the game community the unique opportunity to see star players in real life, meet other gamers, and the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of their favourite game.
Obviously, the security requirements surrounding events have greatly increased due to the corona crisis. It is therefore even more important that events are organized safely and professionally. The events sector is strongly represented in the city of Amsterdam. Various partnerships ensure that a lot of knowledge is exchanged. Event locations, DMCs and event agencies have therefore strongly focused on innovative techniques for organizing hybrid events. In addition, various scenarios have been drawn up that make it possible to safely organize events in the various event locations in the city.
Game Events are often far ahead in terms of technical developments. We always look at the latest technological developments and creative ways to apply. This means that the location where such an event takes place must offer excellent technical and internet facilities. Also, internet connections need to be optimally secured. The city of Amsterdam is a modern city that focuses on education and innovation, which means that the city is technically at the forefront. In addition, there are many event locations with state-of-the-art internet connections.
Game events attract a young, creative and open-minded audience. An audience that is naturally attracted to the tolerant, innovative and free-spirited character of the city of Amsterdam. The images of the Amsterdam canals and canal houses are known worldwide, and international events such as ADE and the many festivals and concerts in the city have for years given the city an enormous appeal towards younger audiences. Amsterdam has a lively historic city centre, a vibrant nightlife, good public transport, and affordable hotel rooms.
