Despite some on-the-floor rumors that this year's convention would be the last, The Leipzig Games Convention will be back next year.
“The GC – Games Convention will be back in Leipzig again in 2009”, Wolfgang Marzin, CEO at the Leipziger Messe GmbH, announced on the last day of Europe’s biggest games fair. “The industry and visitors are giving us their clear support to continue with the fair in Leipzig.” He named August 19 to 23 as the dates for the next Games Convention.
Even Burkhard Jung, mayor of Leipzig City, was pleased: “Anyone who has experienced the enthusiastic mood in the exhibition halls over the last seven years knows: this fair belongs in Leipzig," he said. So happy excited Germans all around!
