Breaking News: Digital Games Conference (DGC) Joins ITP
Exciting times for the region’s largest (and most notable) B2B digital gaming event: Digital Games Conference (DGC) has just joined ITP Media Group.
Working alongside the company’s gaming division, ITP Gaming, DGC will continue to operate and expand throughout the MENA region with its next conference taking place in Dubai on April 1-2 at World Trade Centre (but keep an eye out for more events to come throughout the new year, both within Dubai and across the MENA region.)
Founded five years ago by Habib Chams, DGC was able to bring more than 3000 gaming companies to the region, looking to grow their activity and find partners within MENA, in addition to more than 500 experts and industry professionals to share their knowledge and experience with local and regional stakeholders.
“ITP Media Group will strengthen and bring DGC to the next level by connecting our partners with a wider audience of business owners and consumers in the region, thanks to its 100+ media brands,” Chams said.
“We’re pleased to share this milestone with our supporters and look forward to our first event of 2020 on April 1 and 2nd at World Trade Centre in Dubai.”
“ITP Media Group’s acquisition of DGC falls under our commitment to the growth of the games industry in the region,” Ahmad Bashour, General Manager of ITP Gaming said.
“DGC is the leading games developer conference in the region; we are excited about this acquisition and Habib Chams joining ITP Gaming.”
With the recent launch of ITP Gaming in March 2019, ITP Media Group is consistent with growing its vision towards the digital gaming industry, and fostering homegrown gaming businesses and initiatives within the region.
“ITP Gaming has earned a solid reputation of providing 360-degree solution for new game launches in the Middle East,” Alia Fawad, Director of ITP Gaming, said.
“We’re proud to have worked with some of the biggest names in gaming including Epic Games, Activision, PlayStation Middle East and more, and we are very excited for the future of gaming in the region. DGC will soon be unveiling a packed calendar for 2020.”
With the regional gaming market expected to grow $2.3 billion within the next few years, DGC is planning four summits with ITP Media Group’s support in the new year on various gaming topics including mobile gaming, Esports, Blockchain & Games and VR/AR.
