This year marks the fourth time game’s ‘Pitch & Match @ gamescom’ has been held. Since its launch in 2016, this free event has developed into one of Europe’s most exciting fairs for developers and publishers. In a survey of participants last year, more than 90 per cent stated that they would recommend ‘Pitch & Match @ gamescom’ and 85 per cent planned follow-ups to their meetings.
This year, the matchmaking event will be held on the Tuesday of gamescom, 20 August, from 5.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. at game’s joint booth in Hall 4.1, Stand A-011/D-020.
