G-Star 2014 Global Game Exhibition Begins This Week

Over 200,000 visitors are expected to one of the world’s most anticipated global gaming events.

G-Star marks its 10th anniversary this year as Korea’s largest global game exhibition. Since 2005, G-Star has continued to grow and integrate other events under its banner and now attracts world wide attention as one of the world’s four global game shows.

G-Star, with its slogan ‘Game is not over’ consists of areas for online games, mobile games, arcade games, board games, and console games, as well as small and medium sized company and contents promotion halls. It is also preparing for various events including business meetings, establishing a foreign nation hall, business matching services and consultation sessions.

As Korea’s largest game show, G-Star is a one stop shop for everything one would want to know about games from the history and future of the game industry, to game culture and new releases. G-Star is now preparing to offer visitors and buyers new exciting experiences through the G-Star & Game History and Joint Start-up Centers. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, G-Star will also showcase a Korean-Japanese Anime Orchestra Performance and the Korea-China Blade & Soul World Championships as well as other various e-sports, which will continue the trend of integrating game culture into the industry and generate further interest.

Moreover, to increase convenience to customers, ticket offices will open at 9 a.m., one hour earlier than previous years. This and many other initiatives like it, are being taken to increase visitor turnout and make this year’s G-Star event better than ever.

2014 G-Star will be held from November 20 to 23 at BEXCO from 10:00~18:00 daily. The BTB Hall will be operated from Nov. 20 to 22.
