Goals and Expectations
The main goal for this event is to create contact between
computer game developers in Iran and international publishing companies.
The games industry in Iran has more than a decade’s worth of
experience and has created hundreds of fascinating games, yet it has never had
an opportunity to enter the international market. It is TGC’s intention to
create this opportunity for the first time for Iranian game developers.
The community of game developers in Iran is incredibly large
and active and they have always been of interest to international publishers.
At TGC, these companies, can finally, by coming to Iran and seeing up close the
talents and potentials of Iranian game developers and the Iranian games market,
introduce even more growth to the games industry in this country.
The TGC exhibition will include four main sessions:
- B2B Area
--Regular and VIP meeting places.
--Resting places and dining areas.
--Access to Game Connection meeting
Lectures by international speakers on game development under

developers to get in touch with publishers, investors or service providers.
