Gamescom 2014 - the grand finale to my paysafecard internship

The trade show’s slogan “Celebrate the games!” sums it up perfectly: With an incredible 340,000 visitors and 635 exhibitors from 10 Countries, video games are celebrated here over five days. These figures underline the relevance of the biggest and most important video games trade show in German-speaking countries.

For me it was the weeks of preparation, including the brainstorming, designing, planning and production that I found particularly exciting. This year paysafecard was once again present with two stands - one in the B2C area and one in the B2B area. I was also very involved in the project during the run-up to the trade show: Coordinating with stand constructors, catering, briefings and equipment (cool outfits ;-)), the promotion girls, producers and colleagues were all on my agenda.

While colleagues from Marketing and Sales attended appointments in the business area, the paysafecard slogan “Enjoy your games” was the central theme of our consumer stand. An incredible 10,000 cartons with promotion PINs for customers and 6000 goodies were handed out as prizes for our Gamescom game to visitors. The game was not only my particular highlight of the Gamescom, it was the subject of much talk and interest at the show! After 52 hours at the trade show, the tiring but fantastic days there left many great impressions. My simple conclusion: I’m looking forward to #gamescome2015. Very much.
