- Global Connects Party: The flagship fun event in our fleet of industry-leading fun events, it’s the perfect way to wind down after a hard day’s PG Connecting. Veterans of our parties – and after nearly a decade of these shindigs there are now a fair few of them out there – will confirm we know how to have a good time.
