“The GamesCom show was another smashing success for Trade Group and Wargaming,” said Mike Graziani, Trade Group VP of Design. “Coming hot off the heels of E3, the bar was set very, very, high. But through the use of an inviting design, stunning digital/architectural statements, and an incredible stage show – Wargaming topped themselves once again with record breaking attendee and traffic numbers, increasing awareness to all of their games.”
This success follows hard on the heels of a similar effort on behalf of Red5 Studios at GamesCom 2012, which resulted in a silver award.
