Gaming events are without a doubt some of the most exciting and thrilling annual events that you can find, and with the love of gaming spread throughout the world, you don’t just have to stay close to London in order to go to some of the very best. In fact, some of the biggest and most iconic gaming events are held outside of the UK, so if you’re looking to go, make sure to book your tickets in advance and jump on a flight as soon as you can. If you are heading abroad to one of these gaming events, then you should make sure that your car is parked securely with the help of this website. We’ve put together a list of some of the best gaming events that you can experience outside of the UK for 2017, covering computer games, console gaming, mobile gaming, and even a professional trade show!
Arisia Indie Game Expo 2017
If you’re a lover of science fiction, fantasy and industry games then Arisia Indie Game Expo is a great choice for you. This will be at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel, but isn’t a big name in gaming events – however that doesn’t mean that it’s not one of the best. It’s run by a group of volunteers and is accepting of all sentient life-forms, so is a great way to get connecting with fellow indie game lovers.
Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017, Las Vegas
If you’re searching for a technology trade show as an industry professional, rather than a simple gaming event, then CES 2017 is the perfect one for you. This is going to be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, from January 5 – January 8, and attracts a range of companies and industry professionals from around the world, with a range of electronics and technologies to look out for.
A list of the best gaming events outside of the UK would not be complete without a mention of Gamescom. This is a trade fair for video games and is going to be held at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. If you’re searching for the latest games and want to see all of the previews before the rest of the world, then Gamescon is the place to be next year. It is one of the world’s largest gaming events, with 275,000 visitors with these numbers growing year on year. With a range of video game developers set to show off their upcoming releases and all of the gaming hardware to go with it, you can be sure that Gamescon is the best place to go for a gaming event outside of the UK.
