[포토] On the first day of G-Star 2020, I entered BEXCO
G-Star 2020 has come to an end. This year, G-Star will be held online due to the influence of Corona 19. Of course, BEXCO has a broadcasting stage, but there is no booth that can be called the highlight of the game show. In addition, it is true that general participants cannot enter the field, and major programs are mainly screened on stage with pre-produced videos, and offline, the feeling of a game show is weaker than last year.
In fact, BEXCO Exhibition Hall 1 was filled with exhibitors’ booths last year, but this year, about half of them were empty. The Busan Indie Connect Festival demonstration booth, which showcases games on the G-Star broadcast stage and for those who visited the site, is all of the main facilities installed on the site. And in the vacant place, a large banner was placed introducing the exhibits of B2C exhibitors such as WeMade, Nexon, Krafton, Kakao Games, and Smilegate Megaport. It is true that something is empty even though we know that it is an inevitable part because it is an online-centered process.
However, quarantine measures are strictly followed. QR code authentication and a heat sensor are installed at the front door of BEXCO, and a device to check body temperature is also installed at the front door of the G-Star event. Hand sanitizers and plastic gloves were provided throughout the venue, and there were personnel who managed to maintain a 2m interval even when entering the venue. In the press room where a large number of people gather, desks are separated at 2m intervals, and partitions are installed in all seats to prevent infection.
