What is the PGC Leaders Summit all about?
PGC events have been bringing together the biggest names in the games industry for over a decade at our market-leading conferences, prestigious awards and raucous networking parties and dinners. Now we’re launching something new.

The PGC Leaders Summit is a brand new event designed exclusively for senior executives with the remit of allowing deeper conversation of the big challenges, opportunities and issues that will shape our businesses and the games industry and helping forge more meaningful connections. It’s taking place in Saudi Arabia’s glorious capital, Riyadh, this November 30th to December 1st.

The two days will be packed with opportunities to learn about the region’s games industry, and about the hottest global games topics.

The Summit is divided into individual talks, fireside chats with key figures and expert panels. And each day will conclude with guided roundtables, breakout sessions where everybody will be encouraged to chat with our industry insiders on important subjects. Our speakers come from the Middle East region and also from around the world.

Themes include: raising investment, community building, esports, the strengths and opportunities of the MENA market, metaverse and web3 gaming, how to reach a global audience, growing a healthy gaming ecosystem, business planning and transformation, and lots more.

Of course we all know the best ideas and connections don’t come from a conference room and this event is also about showcasing the sights and sounds of the region, so we’ll be hosting luxurious lunches and taking you into the desert for some off-road excitement, plus there’s even access to the Soundstorm music festival for those who can stay an extra night!
