ImageNext week, Europe's biggest computergames trade fair, the GamesCom will open its doors. And like every year SK Gaming and Bigben Interactive will have a booth together.

More space, more themes, more service and more games

For the fourth time, from August 15 - 19, the international games community will descend on Cologne to savour the fascinating world of computer and video games. Gamescom, the world's biggest trade show and event highlight in interactive entertainment, will this year be on a larger area with additional themes and even more service and games.

More than 300 premiers and exhibitor announcements are expected in Halls 4 to 10 of the Koelnmesse show grounds. With the improved ticket presales and the opening of Hall 11 as an exclusive entrance hall for private visitors with advance tickets, gamescom is clearly expanding its visitor services. Private visitors can also look forward to the new "gamescom trailer cinema powered by LG" and the "cosplay village".

Like the last years we will have our own booth in cooperation with Bigben Interactive. As always there will be games, activities and prizes.
Of course you can meet the whole console staff, like the SK Call of Duty team, SK Gaming Dominance around Scott 'Mak' Brass, Tobi 'Tobi' Foster, Ellis 'Blackk' Strouthos and Josh 'Joshh' Sheppard.

We'll have gaming stations where you can play games like FIFA 12, Test Drive Ferrari Legends, Street Fighter and so on. Everyday we will stage some "Beat the Pro" challenges, where you can face our SK Pro's like Christian 'Cristiano811' Sprengel in Pro Evolution Soccer to win some nice prizes. You can find our booth at Hall 6.1, boothnumber B040 form Wednesday up to Sunday evening. We will also have got a laser station, where you can brand your stuff like controller, keyboard or headset with the SK Gaming logo.

Like last year, SK Gaming will have got his own booth in cooperation with SteelSeries, Toshiba and Kingston HyperX. There you can meet our SK Pro's, you can win nice prizes and we will host some little tourneys. You can watch Min Chul 'MC' Jang playing some showmatches, get some autographs from Carlos 'ocelote' Rodríguez Santiago or just meet our SK staff. If you ever want to test SteelSeries or Toshiba, than you should not miss the gaming stations at the SK booth, where you can play games like Starcraft 2.

More information about the SK booth and the program will follow this week. The whole SK Gaming staff is looking forward to see you at this year's GamesCom.
