The german Indie Dev community is organizing the biggest indie booth at gamescom (Cologne, Germany 22.-26.08.2017) and we are inviting indie developers from all over the world to present their games at our booth.


The Indie Arena Booth is open to everyone who wants to show their game. It doesn't matter which part of the world you are from or what kind of games do you make, we want to create a colorful melting pot of ideas and creativity - so do not hesitate and submit your game! There are a few minor instructions to follow, in order to make the workload managable for you and for us:

Please submit a short trailer, not more than two minutes, to give us a good idea of your game. Like this video from our friends at Klonk Games:

You can also include your elevator pitch as a voice over - we would love to get as much information as possible. And no worries, we do not want you to submit a spectacular trailer for the pleasure of the masses, just show us your game. There will be more information once you signed up.

As always, the booth will be the biggest booth in the hall. When signing up, you can choose between two different booth sizes:

3m x 3m booth all for yourself

  • You can bring your own decorations
  • We will help with hardware sponsoring as much as we can
  • Two exhibitor tickets included (more can be purchased)
  • One table and two chairs included (more can be rented)
  • Cost for the booth: 3500€


One computer in a group area

  • We will provide everything for you, you just show up and present your game
  • 1 exhibitor ticket included (more can be purchased)
  • Cost for the booth: 1500€ 

Are you an Indie Publisher?

If you are a publisher of smaller teams and want to bring multiple games to the show, let us know at
We actually have a special offer where you can have two big booths next to each other and show your whole portfolio in one place. Just reach out and show us which teams you are working with and we can figure something out.


What else?

In addition to all of the above we will be hosting networking parties with interesting partners and use our size to be able to connect you to the partners that you want to meet. In general, we are trying to host an amazing event for all of us.
The submission will be open until the 4th of May, 11:59pm CET and we will review them as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that depending on how many developers apply we may or may not be able to accommodate everyone who applies. We will do our very best though!
If you are still undecided, do not worry: This application is not binding (yet). We are searching for roughly 40-60 developers but we will contact you again before anything goes down.
