Pocket Gamer Connects – THE Global Mobile Games Industry Conference

We launched Steel Media’s first full-on conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, in London at the start of 2014 and followed this up with a mid-year event in Helsinki. These exceeded all our expectations, with over 1,500 top-tier attendees representing leading mobile game developers, publishers, and service companies from all corners of the world.

For 2015 we went bigger, adding events in Bangalore and San Francisco – following on from our tradition of successful industry events in the US – and ended the year having welcomed over 3,500 delegates to our conferences.

In 2016 we returned to London, Bangalore, and Helsinki but added Vancouver to the mix.

And for 2017 we continued to set our sights higher. PGC London 2017 was then our biggest and – according to our delegates – best yet and also introduced XR Connects as a standalone sister conference.

We carried that momentum into our strongest San Francisco outing before ending triumphantly with our fourth – and biggest – PGC Helsinki.

Now, of course, it's back to the start of a new year and the delivery of an ever-bigger, ever-greater Connects series. Our London 2018 outing broke all records, regardless of metric, and we plan on continuing that success as we return, via California, to Finland.

Wherever we go, expect the content to feature distinct tracks according to the host nation as well as the expected focus on the biggest issues and trends facing the industry. Our signature short-form lectures are deliberately aimed at providing insight and inspiration, with honest panel sessions offering frank opinion and advice, while intensive, best-in-class networking again forms the key ingredients in the Connects recipe.

And, as ever, we have fringe events galore. From the Indie Pitch competitions and I ♥ Indie Showcase area giving developers a chance to get discovered, to our popular networking meeting system, the SpeedMatch events to connect developers with publishers and investors, the PechaKucha Sessions for end-of-day 1 fun to the obligatory, infamous conference after-party – to name but a few.
