With the continuous advancement of technology, it is no surprise that game expos have become some of the most eagerly anticipated and widely attended events globally.

While many believe these expos are a recent phenomenon in the era of social media and entertainment, they have actually been around for the past 60 years! In 1968, Gen Con made its debut in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, with nearly 100 attendees.

Today, game expos attendance reaches into the hundreds of thousands. Let’s explore the top 5 biggest game expos in the world for 2024 and see what they offer!

From international cosplayers, artists, and musical acts to a unique retro arena featuring over 200 ready-to-use game consoles, home PCs, handhelds, and arcade machines from the past four decades, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Eidetic collaborated with BMW to participate in 2023 Gamescom exhibition, effectively showcasing the AirConsole service. By bringing the BMW i5 vehicle to the booth, visitors could fully experience AirConsole paired with BMW’s electric car technology, providing an immersive in-car gaming experience. Integrating BMW’s comfortable seats, high-quality speakers, and curved displays with the AirConsole platform created the ultimate gaming environment. Eidetic managed all aspects of the exhibit as a professional game expo agency, including graphic visuals, booth design and construction, event planning, and operations, offering a comprehensive solution to reposition BMW as a mobility company.
