Join us beside the Dead Sea this November for Pocket Gamer Connects Jordan!

Come one, come all! Pocket Gamer Connects is finally returning to Jordan, and this conference is going to be our biggest in the MESA region yet. You won’t want to miss out.

Who says the fun has to be over once summer’s gone? We’re keeping all the conference action going for the rest of the year, and we want you to join us beside the Dead Sea for the second time ever. Over the course of an unmissable weekend from November 12 to November 13, over 700 delegates will gather near the glorious Dead Sea, about 30 minutes from capital Amman, for two days of networking and knowledge-sharing.

Attendees from all around the world will hear from 100 of the industry's leading authorities, sharing insight and case studies into the games industry. They will benefit from the MeetToMatch meeting platform, for finding essential business connections. 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 all takes place at a new venue for PG Connects, the King Hussein Bin Talal 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.

Keep on reading to learn more about everything we have to offer at our biggest MESA region conference yet!

Discover, learn, share

As ever, the conference schedule will be packed with our trademark short, sharp seminars and panels. Across two stages and 10 packed conference tracks, our international panellists and lecturers will share their insight on everything from studio basics to investment ideas, influencer promotion, disruptive technologies, user acquisition and beyond.

Supporting indie developers

Small, independent developers are the lifeblood of the mobile games industry and PG Connects champions their work. The show floor has a dedicated expo area for known names and newcomers alike to display their talent to an industry audience. This is a vibrant and varied expo area for publishers looking to sign promising titles.

And of course, our hugely popular Very Big Indie Pitch will be back with indie devs competing to impress a panel of expert judges. The winners walk away with prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars, as well as useful feedback.

Developers: meet publishers and investors

As always, there will be fringe activities in side rooms to help with the networking. We know it can be daunting to work out who to connect with. So we have a few privately curated activities where we will hand-pick people for you to meet in a series of short, sharp encounters to create first contact for you to follow up with a longer meeting if you find a potential partner. Spaces are limited so you must apply in advance, you can view the events over at our official conference website now.

The perfect location

For the first time, PG Connects will take place by the Dead Sea. Located at the lowest point on earth, the King Hussein Bin Tala Convention Centre managed by Hilton is an incredible destination. The conference takes place over two days at this purpose-built hotel and conference location. We recommend that you book your trip with some days on either side to take advantage of this incredible country.

Established international audience

More than 30,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, the USA, Canada, Finland, and India with a genuinely international client base; on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event.

In 2016, we became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and have stayed on top ever since. Every event has been bigger and better than the last. During the pandemic we took the conference series online and that also proved popular, with a series of eight PG Connects digital conferences taking place in 2020 and 2021.

Not only have our previous delegates voted Connects the 'best value conference', but 97% would recommend it to a colleague and 96% tell us they’ll come back for more.

Previous speakers and delegates from all the key industry players include Apple, Disney, Facebook, Google, Square Enix, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Sega, Capcom, Twitter, Snapchat, Twitch and many, many, many more.

Networking for all

The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the whole gaming industry. Unlike other events, we offer our MeetToMatch meeting platform free and unlimited to all delegates, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.

No other event puts you in touch with the entire mobile gaming industry like our PG Connects conferences. All are welcome, from first-time designers to the CEOs of the biggest companies. On average, about 70% of our attendees are game makers with the other 30% being a mix of tool providers, investors, ad services and other parts of the ecosystem.

And if that all sounds a bit serious, day one closes with our friendly Global Connects party – that’s where we relax, eat and chat informally at a venue nearby.

  • Entry to the main conference includes access to all content tracks expo and dedicated meeting area on both days
