A special thank you to the sponsors for Pocket Gamer Connects Jordan

Pocket Gamer Connects expands its reach into the Middle East this week, and we’re proud and grateful to have some of the finest companies backing us on the event’s first trip to Jordan.

As they’re joining us at the King Hussein Business Park in Amman with support from the King Abdullah II Fund, we’d like to give them a special shoutout to these amazing firms that believe in what we do and continue to support our conferences.

You could even meet them at the show through our free unlimited meeting scheduler or at our Global Connects Party.
