Death Of Leipzig Not So Greatly Exaggerated

3 12 2008

How things change. I blogged here before about the building conflict between Leipzig and Cologne for games industry events this year and next, and at the time Leipzig enjoyed a great deal of industry goodwill and confidence.

However, CMP have now acquired gamescom owner Global Games Media, and furthermore recruited former Leipzig conference director Frank Sliwka. They plan to run GDC Europe next to the gamescom consumer event, and with that kind of power and brand respect, Leipzig is suddenly looking dead in the water.
