As well as the latest Pocket Gamer Connects, it’s that time of year when our thoughts also turn to G-STAR. If you’re considering attending G-STAR in South Korea in November, you can add a ticket to your Pocket Gamer Connects purchase at checkout – just an additional £75+VAT, when both conferences are booked together.

G-STAR is the biggest games event in Korea and one of the biggest in Asia, indeed the world. Now gearing up for its 17th edition, this year’s dates have been announced as November 17th to 21st, including both b2b (with MeetToMatch meetings and G-CON talks and panels) and b2c (with expo for gamers) components.

When and where?

Each November anyone who’s anyone in the Asia-Pacific industry – along with a solid overseas contingent from the US and Europe – descend upon the beautiful beachside town of Busan in Korea for a week of intense networking, business dealing and a little games industry fun too!

In previous years the b2b part of the show attracted over 2,500 business delegates to the BEXCO arena and to mitigate the effects of COVID, this year (including the G-CON conference) will run as an online and offline parallel exhibition. Korea is in the top five global game markets and the entire domestic ecosystem will be involved in the event.

For overseas attendees, G-STAR has become the gateway to the Asia-Pacific region. It’s not just about Korea either, G-STAR has long offered a friendly entry point to the wider APAC markets of China, Japan and SEA which collectively represent the very biggest cluster in the world.
