G-STAR confirms digital event and Pocket Gamer Connects partnership

You'll know from previous years that we're big fans of the business conference G-STAR here at It's the biggest and best games exhibition in South Korea and provides access to the fourth biggest games market in the world. It represents the most friendly and accessible route to the whole of the APAC games market. With Japan, China and the ever-growing SEA market, Asia is very much in the ascendancy, and a ticket to G-STAR always connects us easily with the big names in that market.

This year's G-STAR b2b exhibition will be held online, so everybody will be able to meet top Asian gaming companies in the most convenient environment (your home office!).

G-STAR 2019 attracted the biggest names in gaming from all over the region and the world with previous attending companies including Supercell, Netmarble, KAKAO Games, Epic Games, Google, YouTube, Pearl Abyss, CCP Games, LG and more. And with more speakers and plenty of fringe events lined up too, there has definitely never been a better time to explore the gateway to the Asian Games market this year.

International networking made easy

Last year over 2,500 trade visitors met, and this year without the restrictions of travel that number is expected to increase substantially. The G-STAR networking system has been improved intuitively so that anyone can use it. One ticket enables you to run unlimited online meetings.

Organized by the Korea Association of Game Industry (K-GAMES) and co-organized by G-STAR Organizing Committee and Busan IT Industry Promotion Agency, G-STAR is “the best gateway to the Asia games market”. Launched in 2005, this annual South Korean computer and video game trade and consumer show is the one-stop, easily-accessible gateway to international markets, and takes place annually in Busan, South Korea. With one of the most active and developed gaming markets behind it, the biggest players in publishing, development and investment gather at G-STAR every year, to do business and set the industry trends. This year's it's online.
