MATCHMAKING &
B2B MEETINGS

Digital Games Conference offers the opportunity for B2B meetings thanks to its matchmaking service that facilitates and organizes your meetings with the other participants, the sponsors, the exhibitors and the speakers. Every year 1000 + meetings are organized during the two days conference and social events.

EXHIBITION

Showcase your games and innovations

The Exhibition and showcasing opportunities are divided into two areas at DGC Games as follows:

Exhibition stands in the B2B section reserved for exhibitors that are looking to meet other participants to the conference and B2B/matchmaking. This area is reserved to the conference attendees, the B2B attendees, the sponsors and speakers.
Showcasing stands in the open to the public area where gamers and visitors can play games, try innovations, compete in e-sport competitions, and learn about services and products for gaming and gamers.

BLOCKCHAIN
DGC GAMES

A REVOLUTION IS COMING - DON’T MISS IT!

Digital Games Conference Dubai will host for the first time in the Middle East & Africa region a “Blockchain & Games” summit and Exhibition. This will run as part of the Digital Games Conference talks, exhibition and B2B meetings that gather developers, publishers, telcos , payment system providers, influencers and marketing agencies, servers companies and more. 

Blockchain technology and gaming holds great promise for the growth of both industries. Gamers are some of the early adopters of cryptocurrencies and Blockchains provide a useful tool for gamers for various reasons including decentralized asset exchanges, verifiable scarcity of virtual objects and collectibles, fast and secure payment networks, and an ability for developers to properly monetize their creations.

The most popular implementation of blockchain technology for gaming is with non-fungible assets. In gaming, these assets can be anything from game skins to virtual cards part of a specific game that are verifiably scarce.
The authenticity of individual virtual items is guaranteed using smart contract standards such as the ERC-721 non-fungible token standard and the newer ERC-1155 reference implementation.

Sponsorship , exhibiting and attending opportunities are now available and they give access to Digital Games Conference and the Blockchain & Games Summit and exhibition.

DEVELOPERS
COMPETITIONS

Digital Games Conference attracts developers from all the countries of the MENA region. In 2019 DGC Games will host prizes and competitions for developers, including the annual casual connect indie prize, the discovery contest in partnership with the Nordic games association and the first regional University students Games Development contest.
