Dutch Games Association (DGA) will be hosting the ninth Holland Pavilion at Gamescom this year, bringing Dutch companies large and small to the event. Gamescom is Europe’s biggest trade fair for interactive games and entertainment, and one of the most important industry meetup worldwide for insiders, publishers and developers.
This year DGA supports 23 companies to present their games, services or products at Gamescom. The broad selection of companies and organizations represents the Dutch games industry at its best across a wide variety of topics such as education, VR, applied, business and indie games. In the Holland Pavilion you’ll find booths from established industry players as well as indie studios that have been selected by the DGA to showcase their promising projects, such as Kuality Games with action strategy Bolt Storm, Game Brouwerij with dungeon raiding & building game Space Vikings, Kwa Qua Games with multiplayer surrealist drawing game Mish Mash, and more!
In addition, DGA also supports development studios Ronimo Games and KeokeN with a booth at the Indie Arena in the entertainment area of Gamescom.
This year the signature event at the Holland Pavilion will be the ‘Show Your Courage’ Q&A on August 21 and 22, from 10am – 5pm, hosted by Dutch Game Garden and DGA. A selection of industry veterans will be interviewed on various topics in the games industry, offering the audience the chance to learn from their peers.
