The inaugural PGC Leaders Summit Riyadh provides a space for senior directors, founders and entrepreneurs to come together and discuss the future of the games industry in an exclusive, luxurious setting. The summit itself takes place at the end of November into December, and this special gathering is a highly exclusive opportunity for more informal networking to take place and set the stage for deeper conversations between director-level executives. It’s taking place in the unique setting of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, one of the fastest-growing regions in the games industry – the MENA market is forecast to grow 8.2% this year, and if our Connects conference’s incredible turnout is any indication, the region is establishing itself as a key player in the industry worldwide.
You won’t want to miss joining leading companies and key decision-makers in the industry from both the MENA region and overseas to exchange insights, network and map out the next decade of this thriving industry. This is a prime place to learn more about the issues and opportunities presented in the region, and you’ll get to hear a mix of talks from celebrated industry experts and partake in unmissable guided roundtable discussions.
