The dust has barely settled on the most recent PGC Helsinki – where over 1,200 games professionals representing over 510 companies from 41 countries gathered for two days of cutting-edge content, seminars, networking and doing business.
And we’re already looking forward to the last PGC of the year as we return to Jordan once again this November 4th to 5th, and it’s time to start making plans to join us there. You won’t want to miss joining us besides the Dead Sea for an unmissable weekend of insights, innovation and countless networking opportunities in this stunning location!
Our Super Early Bird offer for this unmissable show is now available, so take advantage of this opportunity by securing your ticket to our biggest show in the MENA region yet at the best possible price.
What’s happening at PG Connects Jordan?
It’s the same conference you know and love, and after the success of last year, we’re returning to the shore of the glorious Dead Sea. Over the course of the two days, over 700 games industry professionals from all over the globe will join us at King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre Managed by Hilton, about 30 minutes from capital Amman, to hear from 100 of the industry’s leading authorities from all around the globe. They will share insight and case studies into the games industry and give the most current, cutting-edge advice.
Attendees will enjoy our MeetToMatch platform, a completely free online platform for you to find essential business connections and schedule meetings well in advance so you can make the most of PG Connects Jordan before so much as setting foot there. There will be an expo area with new games and services on show. And everyone will enjoy networking opportunities like the Very Big Indie Pitch competition and Investor Connector sessions.
This is all taking place at an incredible location, King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre Managed by Hilton, on the shores of one of the most historic locations in the world. It’s the largest convention centre in Jordan, and it’s going to be an unprecedented, sublime experience you won’t want to miss.
What’s going on in the MENA games market?
The MENA region, and Jordan at that, is one of the most promising locations for the future of gaming that we need to shift our eyes towards. The MENA games market is expected to reach over $5 billion by 2025, and it’s the fastest-growing games market in the world for a reason.
Today, the MENA region’s domestic market is the fastest growing in the world, touting over 377 million estimated players – this is almost as many gamers as all of Europe combined (386 million) and much more than America (210 million). Along with this booming global success, there’s more and more local development talent sprouting in the area and creating for the local players, with Tamatem, one of Jordan’s leading developers that was founded just in 2013, now having a total value of over $80 million while specialising in localising internationally renowned games to suit Arabic-speaking users.
The games sector in the MENA region is only growing, and Jordan is at the very heart of it all – joining in on making essential connections with the leading players in this area is going to make a world of a difference when it comes to doing business here, and there’s no place to do it like Pocket Gamer Connects Jordan.
