Online media of this type must have been in existence for at least three months, must produce regular entries and the most recent article relating to the topic of the exhibition must be no older than three months.

We welcome publications writing in journalist’s native language for localisation, however, for ease of communications between all partners of gamescom asia, English will be the main language presented. For media attendance on-site, Koelnmesse may request for a form of press identification to verify your media representation (in the event that the representative differs from the approved applicant). If necessary, Koelnmesse shall exercise its domiciliary rights.

We advise you that data received for the purpose of processing your accreditation may be also used for the clarification of queries.

The following groups of persons shall not be accredited:

  • Persons without journalistic credentials, such as account managers, sales managers, advertising managers or webmasters, PR consultants and private companions
  • Persons who are exclusively active in social networks in a private capacity

Am I approved once I submit the form?
