The gamescom latam is the combination of gamescom, the largest games event in the world, with the BIG Festival, the largest games festival in Latin America. The gamescom latam will take place from June 26 to 30, 2024, at São Paulo Expo.
At gamescom latam, visitors will find the best games and most up-to-date trends in the world of games. The biggest companies in the gaming industry gather to make special announcements, launch their new projects, make their most famous titles available for the public to play and much more!
In addition to the event for consumers, which also features a meet & greet with creators, talks, cosplays, board games and eSports tournaments, gamescom latam also offers a business area for industry professionals and the BIG Festival, the main competition of independent games in Latin America, all available for you to test.
The most important event in the Southern Hemisphere!
With every new edition, new records are broken: more attractions, more games, more releases, more space, more people and more fun! After 11 years of existence, BIG Festival has joined forces with gamescom to become gamescom latam!
More than double the size
The 2023 edition occupied a space 10x larger than the seventh edition of the festival, in 2019, and 2x larger than 2022, in other words, more attractions and better structure for you to enjoy the event!
More than 250 game stations
More than 50 unreleased games
In addition to the games already known to the public, the event also featured new titles for you to discover first-hand. In 2024, there will be many more!

Main Streamers meeting in the year in partnership with Twitch
Twitch was one of the event’s partners and held the largest gathering of streamers in the country at its booth. The public had the opportunity to meet several streamers and follow sessions and interviews with them.
