The theme for Gamescom 2012 was “celebrating the games” and Boku was on hand to help many of our favorite gaming partners (and a number of potential new partners) celebrate a truly great year. The fourth edition of gamescom, the world’s biggest trade fair and event highlight for interactive entertainment, hosted more than 275,000 visitors, including around 24,500 trade visitors from 83 countries with more than 600 exhibitors representing 40 countries.
If there was one theme that came out of many of our partner meetings at the event, it was that payments in the online and mobile gaming industries is a far more mature and complex environment than ever before, making the technology and services behind Boku even more appealing to current and future partners.
Events like Gamescom give Boku an incredible opportunity to take the pulse of the gaming industry at large and better understand the big trends that are most important to our merchant partners. We are working with all of our partners to ensure that they get everything they need from Boku’s payments platform now and for many years to come as the industry keeps maturing and gaining in complexity. If you want to learn more about Boku’s merchant offerings, feel free to check them out here.
Thank you to all of our partners who met up with us in beautiful Cologne! Looking forward to the rest of 2012 and to seeing old friends and new at Gamescom 2013.
