Thank you to all who attended this year's Digital Games Conference.
The June 2022 edition of Digital Games Conference marked its return to a physical format after two years of virtual editions. It was a huge success, with a stellar lineup of regional and international speakers discussing everything from indie game development to esports.
We were delighted to welcome games industry veteran Peter Molyneux as our keynote speaker. The creator of globally successful franchises such as Populous, Theme Park, Syndicate, Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper, Black & White and Fable delivered a captivating speech outlining his impressive career and his countless achievements to date.
We also heard from the likes of Riot Games, TikTok, DELL and many more as industry leaders from around the region convened for the two-day event at Warehouse Four.
Stay tuned for details on our next edition!

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 virtual events were a huge success with over 57 hours of content, from 137 speakers gathering 273 thousand views. We also helped connect over 1000 b2b users connect through our virtual conferencing platform.
In 2022, we were delighted to have Digital Games Conference once again returning to a physical edition, taking place on the 15th and 16th of June at Warehouse Four in Dubai.
