Nvidia, the American GPU manufacurer, is all set to host a gaming event called the Geforce Gaming Celebration event. The event is scheduled to be held between August 20-21 in Cologne, Germany. Interestingly, this event will take place just a day before the world’s biggest gaming expo, the Gamescom 2018 is scheduled to be held also in Cologne, Germany.

In a press release, Nvidia has mentioned that “the event will be loaded with new, exclusive, hands-on demos of the hottest upcoming games, stage presentations from the world’s biggest game developers and some spectacular surprises.”

On its web page, the company mentions:

Join us at our GeForce Gaming Celebration!

Festivities kick off at 6PM CET on Monday, Aug. 20. The venue is subject to capacity limits and entry will be first-come, first-served, so plan to get there early. Limit one ticket per person.

DATE AND TIME

Monday, Aug. 20, 2018

6 PM – 12 AM CET

Nvidia has suggested that there might be PC-powered demos of new yet-to-be-released games at the event. Surprisingly, the company is keeping the venue of the event a secret and has mentioned that they’ll “give all of the details, once we get closer to the event.”

There has been a lot of speculation that Nvidia could focus on the new Turing GPU, the Geforce GTX 1180 and other graphic cards that are in the pipeline, at the event. Rumours also have it that company’s GTX 1180 is scheduled to launch on August 30, the Geforce GTx 1170, custom GTX 1180+ on September 30 and the mid-range GTX 1160 on October 30.

The press release also mentions that the event is free but participants will be considered on a first-come first-serve basis after they have registered for the event online, so if you’re hanging around Cologne, Germany then, you might want to give this event a go. Those unable to attend the event in person can also watch the livestreamed telecast. The event kicks off at 6pm CET on August 20 and will go on until midnight CET, and then again from 10am CET to 5pm on August 21.
