At devcom, we are 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 behind and guarantee every attendee has access to as much content as technically possible – no matter if you join us in person or from your desk anywhere in the world.

Conference Program:

All sessions, no matter if delivered live from Cologne or from our speakers’ homes, will be streamed and thereby made 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, just as in our digital conferences 2020 & 2021.

Matchmaking:

devcom will open its matchmaking system & even platform on Aug. 8 and leave it open until Sept. 11, for 2 more weeks of intense matchmaking after devcom has ended.
