(“Enthusiast Gaming” or the “Company”) (TSX: EGLX), the leading gaming and media company in North America, is pleased to announce that its flagship event, Pocket Gamer Connects (“PGC”) London 2024, set records as its largest event to date. The show marked the start of the 10th anniversary of PGC events and surpassed all previous shows on a number of key metrics, with over 2,600 attendees representing more than 1,300 companies from 65 countries.

Over 290 industry thought leaders shared their insights on the most relevant topics in gaming during the event’s 29-track conference schedule, panel discussions, and presentations, including in-depth discussions on the impact of generative AI on the future of gaming, and thousands of meetings were coordinated between attendees, including over 5,000 meetings through PGC’s official online MeetToMatch platform.

"The PG Connects London conference was our 10th anniversary show and the biggest to date on just about every metric," commented Chris James, CEO of Steel Media, a subsidiary of Enthusiast Gaming. "We had more publishers, developers and sponsors than ever before and brought together the very biggest names in the industry, including leading games publishers King, Supercell, Epic, Miniclip, Scopely Netease, and Playrix, plus leading platforms and industry services such as TikTok, Microsoft, Roblox, Sony, Samsung, Unity, Meta, Data.Ai, Applovin, and Digital Turbine, among many others. Together with our successful fringe events for investors, publishers and indie developers, PGC London has been a great way to start the year - next stops San Francisco, Dubai, Cologne, and Helsinki!"
