Our Story

our-story image

Digital Games Conference was established to be MENA region’s number one business event for the gaming industry. Since the very first DGC in 2017, each on-ground event has brought more than 500 gaming-related companies from over 30 countries to the region with the aim of growing their activity and help finding partners in the Middle East.

The first three installations of DGC were physical events with more than 100 exhibitors and over 60 industry professional speakers attending each conference, sharing their knowledge and experience with both local and regional stakeholders.

However, the concept of the conference was adjusted in 2020, which is when the first virtual Digital Games Conference event took place. This has provided us with an opportunity to invite even more speakers to attend the event all around the world, allowing more businesses to share about their role in the gaming eco-system, and produce content that stays relevant for people who want to get into the gaming industry.

Our first year of virtual events in 2020 was a huge success with over 57 hours of content, from 137 speakers gathering 273 thousand views. We also help connect over 1000 b2b users connect thought our virtual conference platform.
