Networking for all
A Pocket Gamer Connects conference is a place to do business. It’s famous for being a place where new connections are made (hence the name) and productive meetings take place. You will be able to network with over 1,200 industry professionals at this online event, and we’ll do our best to make it easy for you.
We will bring together the entire video game industry, from students and independent studios to the media, international investors and AAA publishers. Unlike other events, we offer our MeetToMatch meeting calendar for free to all delegates, with unlimited requests, so you can find the perfect contact and set up a meeting in person.
Side events organized like our Publisher SpeedMatch, Money Maker and Investor Connector events match developers in quick succession with a range of publishers or investors. These are exclusive sessions where our experts handpick companies that we know will find common goals. These short and pointed meetings allow you to have a first contact followed by a longer meeting if you find a potential partner. It’s a showcase for developers to display their products and a lead pipeline for anyone looking to recruit promising talent. Early application is advised as they fill up quickly and cannot be reached on the same day.
Independent developers are the lifeblood of the mobile and PC gaming industry and Pocket Gamer Connects always supports their work. Our hugely popular Big Indie and PC Indie Pitchs will be back in full force with independent developers competing to impress a panel of expert judges. Winners walk away with armfuls of prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars.
