Enthusiast Gaming’s Pocket Gamer Connects to Host PGC San Francisco on March 18-19

LOS ANGELES, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (“Enthusiast Gaming” or the “Company”) (TSX: EGLX), a leading gaming and media company in North America, today announced that its next live event Pocket Gamer Connects (PGC) will take place in San Francisco on March 18-19. Being held immediately prior to the Game Developers Conference (GDC 2024), PGC San Francisco is expected to draw a large crowd of video game developers, publishers and other industry professionals to connect, do business and learn from industry leaders.

In partnership with Game Connection America, a renowned producer and promoter of international games industry events for over 23 years, PGC San Francisco will feature talks, panels, and round-tables with experts from across the mobile, PC and console games space, plus match-making meetings, networking fringe events, a lively showcase expo, an indie pitching competition and more. Speakers and sponsors include executives from brands such as Netflix, Samsung, and Hasbro as well as representatives from top-grossing mobile games like Candy Crush, Honor of Kings, and Monopoly Go!

“The global mobile gaming market is fast approaching $100 billion, representing over half the total games industry value and providing a platform enabling brands to influence otherwise hard-to-reach consumers in a variety of ways,” commented Chris James, CEO of Steel Media, a subsidiary of Enthusiast Gaming. “Pocket Gamer Connects has produced must attend events around the world for over a decade to advance this industry and serve the ever-growing ecosystem. While PGC is already the leading independent games event series in its own right, the addition of Game Connection allows us to build an even more compelling conference in San Francisco this year and provides added momentum for upcoming events in Dubai, Helsinki, Jordan and London.”

PCG San Francisco will be hosted at The Hibernia, a glamorous former bank, located in San Francisco’s storied Mid-Market neighborhood and just blocks from Moscone Center where GDC 2024 is being held. More information can be found at

Other PGC events to come this year include the GameExpo Summit in Dubai May 1-2; PGC Helsinki October 1-2, and PGC Jordan November 9-10 plus the Mobile Games Awards on August 20 in Cologne and more to come.
