GES and HBO partner on Games of Thrones exhibition World

Inspired by the hit HBO series, new event Game Of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition will begin a worldwide tour in Autumn 2017.

Showcasing the costumes, artifacts, and set decorations from televeision programme Game of Thrones, including the new upcoming season, immersive exhibition will give fans an opportunity to step inside the fictional world of Westeros.

In collaboration with HBO Global Licensing, global events provider GES is designing and building the new 10,000 square foot interactive experience, and will exclusively tour the exhibition to worldwide destinations from Autumn 2017. The tour will kick off in Europe, with the first location to be announced soon. 

Featuring a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content, visitors will experience the mythical lands of Westeros and Essos and relive the trials and tribulations of the series’ characters as they struggle for survival.

In anticipation of the launch of the exhibition later this year, GES’ creative team will work closely with HBO to create diverse environments from Westeros and Essos and to design an exhibition ’as exciting as the show itself’. 

Visitors to the exhibition will see displays of costumes, props, weapons and armor and will explore several dynamic themed exhibition areas featuring series settings such as:

  • The wintry landscapes of the North, the tree-lined pathway of the King’s Road, and the regal settings of King’s Landing
  • The conquered city of Meereen with its garrisons of Unsullied warriors and the loyalists of House Targaryen
  • Iconic settings like the mysterious House of Black and White, the home of the Night’s Watch: Castle Black; and the frozen lands Beyond the Wall
  • The centerpiece of the iconic Iron Throne room, where visitors can gaze upon the Westerosi seat of power

Game of Thrones has truly become a worldwide phenomenon, with fans avidly watching the show throughout all corners of the globe,” said Jeff Peters, director, global licensing, HBO. “Based on the stellar work GES has done with previous entertainment partners, we think this exhibition is going to be something fans will love, regardless of which part of the world they call home, and we’re excited to give them the opportunity to visit and celebrate the incredible craftsmanship of the talented Game of Thrones production team.”

Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer and EVP, GES Events, added: “GES is thrilled to partner with HBO to bring the craftsmanship and artistry of Game of Thrones to fans. We are committed to giving fans worldwide the opportunity to experience some of their favorite elements from the show firsthand while experiencing the world of Game of Thrones unlike ever before,” said
