The Global Mobile Games Confederation, otherwise known as GMGC, is now entering its 5th year ever since its inception back in September 2012 and has set their eyes in one of Asia’s booming markets for video games that is the Philippines. Happening this January 2017, GMGC will be having its conference in the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel in Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila, as it invites some of the prominent names in the mobile game industry, developers, publishers, CEOs, together with the aspiring mobile game makers, and even celebrities.

Looking to start the Philippine calendar of gaming-related events (and hopefully becoming a regular thing), the Global Mobile Games Confederation has become one of the biggest gaming events in South East Asia, with its international stops including Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam, Bangkok Thailand, and Singapore Singapore, and not only does it help bridge aspiring developers with established brands, but also provides a large insight of just how big Mobile Games are in terms of global presence.

So why should you be at GMGC Manila this January 2017? Here, we list down all the best reasons.
