Two-day summit for the global games industry to take place alongside Dubai’s large scale GameExpo event attracting thousands of consumers

This June 21st to 22nd, the Pocket Gamer Connects team are partnering with the Dubai Economy & Tourism Department (DET) to bring the global games industry an unmissable conference experience in the glorious city of Dubai, part of the fastest growing region of the international games industry.

The GameExpo Summit powered by PG Connects will take place over two days alongside the larger GameExpo event at the incredible hub of sustainability and innovation, Expo City Dubai. The summit itself will feature more than 100 renowned games industry speakers from all over the globe delivering insightful talks, panels and seminars across a number of themed tracks. You can expect discussions on pressing topics facing the games industry such as new technologies from the metaverse, AI and Web3 to the latest techniques and trends in development and monetisation, as well as the unprecedented growth of the MENA market.

On top of a multitude of expert-led talks and insightful panel sessions, you will also have the opportunity for discussions with experts at the cutting edge of their respective fields on all of these topics through round-table discussions, a lively expo area to explore and multiple fringe events.

The GameExpo Summit will offer the very same high-quality networking opportunities you’ve come to expect from Pocket Gamer Connects events. This Summit presents an unparalleled opportunity for you to expand your network and meet professionals from all around the globe and all areas of the games industry ecosystem, from indie developers and international publishers through key toolmakers, monetisation specialists as well as investors, media and more.

You will have free, unlimited access to our central meeting system, MeetToMatch, to facilitate connections between you and other attendees in a designated meeting area, as well as access to targeted fringe events and less formal connections on the expo floor or after-hours networking.

This is a prime opportunity to make new connections with games industry professionals from all over the globe and to get business done in the MENA market and beyond.

An exciting opportunity for the global games industry
