Ammon News - The Jordan Gaming Lab, a King Abdullah II Fund For Development (KAFD) project, is set to host the Global Mobile Games Industry Conference next November, in cooperation with the Jordan Gaming Task Force (JGTF), within the activities of the 11th Jordan Gaming Summit for 2022.

KAFD Director Saeb al-Hasan said the conference is an ample opportunity for Jordanian youth and game developers to look first-hand at the latest developments in the sector, contribute to putting Jordan on the industry's map and enhance its role as a regional hub for the sector, stressing the KAFD's support to Jordanian game developers partaking in the conference.

Nour Khrais, Chairman of the JGTF and CEO of Maysalward, a Jordanian software company and a technical partner of the Jordan Gaming Lab, pointed out that the Jordan Gaming Summit will be launched in cooperation with Pocket Gamer Connects (PGC) Jordan, owned by Steel Media Ltd., a global company that organizes prominent events in the video games sector.

The conference will also host global companies specialized in developing mobile video games and a number of speakers to discuss the latest developments in game making and means of promotion, publication, and generating income, offering Jordanian, Arab, and international developers to network and connect through workshops and discussions.

Winners of the 12th edition of the App Challenge, a competition for 14 to 16-year-old school students, will also be announced during the conference, Khrais noted.

For the third year, PGC Jordan's conference will include a global competition for best independent developers, giving a chance for independent developers to showcase their games to a group of prominent specialists, strategic partners, and investors.

This year's conference, which is expected to bring together about 500 people, focuses on e-sports and how they have become a part of global sports and provides an opportunity for youth to compete for e-sports prizes.
