Oberhausen, 26 November 2018 -- For fans of the HBO TV-series GAME OF THRONES®, a dream comes true. A few months before the series' final season kick-off, the GAME OF THRONES: The Touring Exhibition celebrates its German premiere at the Centro Promenade in Oberhausen from 27 November 2018 for a limited time.
At today’s press conference, actors Tom Wlaschiha and Isaac Hempstead Wright, better known as Jaqen H’ghar and Bran Stark from the GAME OF THRONES series, ushered in the opening events. The actors will also be present at the public opening on 27 November.
AWC AG presents this exhibition in cooperation with GES Events in a temporary exhibition hall at the Centro Promenade in Oberhausen. After tour stops in Barcelona and Paris, Oberhausen is now the first German stop on the European tour of the exhibition.
Based on the groundbreaking HBO® series, GAME OF THRONES: The Touring Exhibition will give fans the experience of a lifetime with an up-close and personal look into the world of Westeros andex Essos. In collaboration with HBO Licensing & Retail, global events provider GES Events designed and built the show’s largest public display to date.
The exhibition beautifully showcases the sumptuous costumes, authentic props, and majestic settings from all seven seasons of the worldwide hit series GAME OF THRONES in an interactive, immersive experience which leads visitors through several dynamically themed exhibition areas.
Fans of the series will recognize the breathtaking objects and enthralling artifacts from the screen, made real, and experience first-hand the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into the one-of-a-kind pieces showcased in this new 10,000-square-foot interactive experience. Each dynamically themed exhibition area will transport visitors to the world of GAME OF THRONES with a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content set within a carefully curated collection of the most breathtaking items from the show.
“The GAME OF THRONES fanbase stretches across all corners of the globe, and we’re excited to be able to reach as many of those fans as possible through this experience,” said Jeff Peters, VP of licensing & retail at HBO. “The exhibition has been a huge hit in Spain and France, and we’re certain our fans in Germany will be lining up for their turn to visit!”
"We are very pleased that in cooperation with GES Events and HBO, we are able to present this impressive exhibition to German fans of the show this winter and know it will draw visitors from all over the region," explains Andreas Waschk , CEO of AWC AG and managing director of Explorado Group GmbH.
“Winter is coming and GES Events is proud to bring GAME OF THRONES: The Touring Exhibition to Oberhausen with an unprecedented collection of costumes and props, including new items never before displayed in public,” said Robin Stapley, VP of design and creative, GES.
Visitors can experience the wintry landscapes of the North and the tree-lined pathway of the Kingsroad; view a garrison of Unsullied warriors and the iconic costumes of House Targaryen. In addition, enter the House of Black and White, explore the Castle Black, where the night watch has its home. And, of course, the Iron Throne stands in the exhibition hall, in the shadow of which aristocrats and ordinary people alike struggle to survive. Visitors to the exhibition can sit on the Iron Throne and for a brief moment feel themselves like the ruler of the seven royal lands.
