The European video game industry revenue increased steadily to €24.5bn

Video games represent one of Europe’s most compelling segments of cultural and creative industries. European revenue increased steadily after the exceptional increase between 2019 and 2020, owing to video games’ role in helping millions of people stay connected during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Europe is the home of some of the largest trade shows across the world.

Trade shows across Europe allow the video games ecosystem to meet, interact and discuss the latest innovations and trends in games, and to discover and reveal upcoming releases for their licenses.  Europe is the home of many of the largest trade events in the world. Some of the largest trade fairs worldwide are organised on a yearly basis, some of them attracting over 300,000 visitors.
