Leipziger Messe just put out a press release spelling out in 40-foot high letters than Games Convention will still take place in Leipzig in 2009.
From the missive:
In response to individual reports in the media in recent months claiming that the GC – Games Convention 2009 would be held elsewhere, the Leipziger Messe boss Wolfgang Marzin clarifies: “The GC – Games Convention is not moving”. Marzin emphasises that the Games Convention is still available to the national and international industry. As the organisers of the GC – Games Convention, the Leipziger Messe would continue to pursue its international strategy. The strength of the world-famous and positively perceived “GC – Games Convention” brand must be exploited to continue expansion of the globally structured concept. An important element in this regard was the Games Convention Asia (GCA) which has been held annually in Singapore since 2007, as Wolfgang Marzin reports.
Got that? IT ISN’T MOVING. It’s just that the show officially sanctioned by the BIU, GAMESCom, will be held in Cologne in September next year. Well handled there, German people.
