Back to Networking
We've run 28 Connects events now since 2014, and since 2020 we moved them online because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But just because you're familiar with the format, don't think you've seen it all before! Pocket Gamer Connects London 2022 will be a welcome return to in-person events, and feature new track themes, new fringe events, and new business content designed to look to the future.
The most exciting thing for us is the chance to meet the industry once more. We're using MeetToMatch as our meeting platform now, which will enable attendees to find each other and arrange meetings in our dedicated area.
A Pocket Gamer Connects conference is a place to get business done. It's famous for being a place where new connections are made (hence the name) and productive meetings take place. You'll be able to network with hundreds of industry professionals and we will do our best to make that easy.
We'll bring together the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and AAA publishers. Unlike some other events, we offer our MeetToMatch meeting scheduler free to all delegates, with unlimited requests, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.
An Established international Audience
Well over 30,000 industry professionals have attended the Pocket Gamer Connects international conference series since 2014, whether that's online or at a venue. The roadshow has landed in the UK, America, Canada, Finland, Jordan, India and Hong Kong with a genuinely international client base: on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event. (When we took the event online during the pandemic, delegates from over 75 countries joined us!)
In 2016, we became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and have stayed on top ever since. Not only have our previous delegates voted Connects the 'best value conference', but 97% would recommend it to a colleague and 96% tell us they’ll come back for more.
Previous speakers and delegates from all the key industry players include Supercell, King, Space Ape Games, Niantic, SYBO, Tencent, Telltale, Apple, Rovio, Disney, Wargaming, Kabam, NetEase, NTT Docomo, Ubisoft, Facebook, Google, Square Enix, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Sega, Capcom, Unity, Twitter, Snapchat, Twitch and many, many, many more.
Curated fringe events like our Publisher SpeedMatch, Money Maker and Investor Connector sessions pair developers in rapid succession with a series of publishers or investors.
Each one is an exclusive session where our experts hand-pick businesses who we know will find objectives in common. These short, sharp encounters enable first contact for you to follow up with a longer meeting if you find a potential partner. It’s a shop window for devs to display their wares and a pipeline of prospects for anyone looking to sign up-and-coming talent. Early application is advised as they fill up quickly and cannot be joined on the day.
Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile and PC games industry and Pocket Gamer Connects always champions their work. Our hugely popular Very Big Indie and PC Indie Pitches will be back in force with indie devs competing to impress a panel of expert judges. The winners walk away with armfuls of prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars.
Look out for the application links once you've bought your Pocket Gamer Connects ticket!
And if that all sounds a bit serious, the first day will close with our awesome Global Connects Party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
Meet the Media
We welcome regional and international specialist media to our events so that your work reaches the widest audience possible. With our own publishing powerhouse behind us, you are guaranteed that our journalists will be onsite for demos, interviews and other ways to raise awareness of your brand or project to the online community outside the walls of the event.
If you’re looking for feedback on a project, stop by our Journalist Bar for a free consultation from professional games journalists from sites including PocketGamer.com. Our editors can also be contacted through the MeetToMatch platform.
Your conference ticket includes...
- Entry to the main conference including access to all content tracks, expo and dedicated meeting areas on both days
