New look for the GC website

GC (Games Convention) 2007

(23 - 26 August 2007)

Press&Trade Visitor Day: 22 August 2007

Leipzig, 22 June 2007

As from today, the GC (Games Convention) introduces itself with a new internet site. At www.gc-germany.com, exhibitors, private and trade visitors and journalists can find out all the latest from the GC. The key feature of the newly designed website is simplified navigation, with six differently coloured theme worlds leading the way around the many GC offers.

Another new option is the GC Community. With immediate effect, visitors to the www.gc-germany.com website can register as Community members, giving them access to more web functions. As one example of these, registration for the first ever open-air summer festival "GC freestyle" is available via the new GC Community function.

The GC is Europe's number one fair for interactive entertainment, infotainment and hardware. Around390 exhibitors are expected to occupy the Leipzig Exhibition Centre from 23 to 26 August. All in all, 115,000 square metres (2006: 90,000) are available to game fans. The GC is open on Thursday and Sunday from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.. On the Friday and Saturday, opening hours are extended to 8.00 p.m.. Further information is available at www.gc-germany.com.
