#ddc2022: the official Game Developer Conference of gamescom

On August 22 & 23, 2022 Europe’s biggest game developer conference will again offer a wide range of events and sessions for international game developers, game publishers and service providers.

For the first time since 2019, devcom Developer Conference will be back in Cologne – and we can’t even begin to describe how excited we are! Open your calendars and prepare yourselves for a full five days of games industry galore, kickstarted by #ddc2022, the first ever hybrid edition of devcom.

Wait, five days? That’s right! Even after the main conference program is over, devcom will be hosting a live studio and exclusive devcom attendee space in the B2B expo area at gamescom.

#ddc2022 going hybrid: What does that mean for you?

At devcom, we’re all about connecting the games industry, sharing knowledge, and encouraging change towards a better future. Going hybrid gives us the chance to leave no one out and guarantee every attendee has access to as much content as technically possible – no matter if you join us in person or via your device of choice anywhere in the world.

Conference Program:
All sessions – whether delivered live in Cologne or from our speakers’ homes – will be streamed online, making them available to all attendees, even after the event has ended.

Business Expo:
Even if you can’t make the trip to Cologne, you can still check out all attending partners, or be a part of our Business Expo yourselves, the same as in our digital conferences 2020 & 2021.

Matchmaking:
devcom will open its matchmaking system & event platform (Swapcard) already on August 8 and leave it open until September 11, for 2 more weeks of intense matchmaking after devcom has ended.
