Visitor profile

The show embodies the diversity of gamers in France, welcoming families as well as large numbers of young adults and teenagers (average age 25, with more than half coming from the Paris region).

The world's biggest manufacturers (Nintendo, Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox) and video game publishers (Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, Plaion, Warner Bros.) give PGW visitors the chance to try out the industry's latest releases, with controllers in hand, just a few weeks before Christmas.

PGW also owes its success to the presence of an esport scene offering the best programming of the year, with the finals of the biggest national and European competitions and the presence of France's best gaming teams and influencers.
