Enthusiast Gaming Holdings (EGLX) announced that its Pocket Gamer Connects (PGC) live events series drew record attendees in 2022.

PGC brings the world’s largest game publishers and developers together to learn, share, and grow the business of gaming, with Enthusiast Gaming driving the conversation. 

PGC is a strategic part of the business for the company as its revenue streams (sponsorships and ticket sales) support Enthusiast Gaming’s efforts to diversify revenue with higher yield and higher margin revenue.

PGC attracts thousands of industry leaders and hundreds of gaming brands, making it an attractive direct sales offering.

Across six PGC events in 2022 in London, Seattle, Toronto, Helsinki, Jordan, and last week in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a record 6,700+ industry attendees and nearly 1,000 gaming industry speakers connected and shared insights on a wide range of relevant topics.

Featured sponsors of PGC events in 2022 included Meta, Google, Unity, Agora, Appsflyer, Digital Turbine, Transperfect Jam City, Xsolla, AppLovin, Unity, and more. Companies represented by featured speakers and panellists included Electronic Arts, Humble Bundle, Miniclip, King, Supercell, Jam City, Square Enix, Tencent, and more.

PGC returned to key locations in Europe and North America in 2022 and also expanded its efforts in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region. MENA is a key growth region for the global games industry, with 2022 revenue estimated at $6.8 billion.

The PGC Leaders Summit was launched last week in Riyadh in partnership with the Savvy Games Group. PGC Leaders Summit is a brand-new event designed exclusively for over 120 CEOs and senior executives in the gaming industry to engage in conversations around the big challenges and opportunities that will shape the industry, particularly in the MENA region, in the years to come.

Bill Karamouzis, President of Enthusiast Gaming, commented on the success of the Pocket Gamer Connects events.

“Following a successful 2022 year that saw the return to live events, the team is now gearing up for PGC London 2023 from January 23-24. It is clear that as the number of attendees grows, PGC continues to deliver value to the world’s largest game publishers and developers. We look forward to our next event in London when the gaming industry will come together to network, discover, and learn from the world’s leading gaming authorities.”

Enthusiast Gaming is a gaming entertainment company building the largest media and content platform for video game and esports fans to connect and engage worldwide.
