BREDA, THE NETHERLANDS, August 10, 2022 – Breda Game City Foundation will be attending this year’s gamescom in Cologne, Germany! Representing 10+ companies from Breda and region, Breda Game City plans to make an exciting presence as the newest West-European videogame city.
Breda Game City at gamescom
Breda Game City (BGC) is on a mission to put the Dutch city of Breda on the international videogame map. Gamescom is one of the world’s most important international events for the videogames industry. Attending the event as a Breda delegation will serve two of the foundation’s most important goals: supporting Breda video game companies and the local ecosystem, as well as offering international companies information about Breda’s outstanding factors that make it a perfect city to establish a business in or expand to.
Breda is a modest but hard to ignore hidden gem on a global videogame level. Industry experts already acknowledge the fact that Breda stands out by offering the best qualified alumni in the video game industry thanks to the outstanding performances of Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas).
Robert Grigg, Director of the Academy for AI, Games and Media at BUas, states that, “Over the last decade, BUas has gained a reputation for offering one of the best game development courses in the world. With all the talent graduating each year from BUas, in combination with the efforts of the local government and the flourishing ecosystem, it will be hard to ignore the economic, social, and employment impact of the video game industry in the city of Breda in the next 5 years.“
BGC is part of a larger, Dutch delegation attending Gamescom which offers developers, partners and other professionals the chance to participate in the conference, to network and to connect with peers. This year, some of the partners that BGC will be presenting are Twirlbound, Sassybot, Sticky Lock, Infinity Interactive, Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) and many more!
