G-Star 2022 by Korea Game Industry Association to be held from November 17 to 20

Will be held offline this year!

This year, G-Star 2022 will be held offline, which will be the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak. The organizing committee said that cultural and sports events such as exhibitions and performances are rapidly normalizing. The committee decided after taking into consideration all the circumstances. 

The participation policy will be revised so that both the exhibitor and G-Star can start preparing for the event early. The on-site reception stage has been added to the existing two-step participation application structure of early registration and general registration, and applications for G-Star 2023 will be available at the BEXCO field office where G-Star 2022 will be held.
