We’ve just completed our bookings for this year’s GDC Europe and Gamescom, taking place in Cologne in Germany from August 13 – 18. It’s always a great week, packed full with meetings, catching up with contacts, listening to industry peers share their experiences, the European Games Awards and yes, the odd party and a bit of socialising over a Koelsch.
