Speaker submissions open for Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019

Speaker submissions open for Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019

We may be basking in a seemingly endless heatwave that feels like the end of days right now, but we’re already looking forward to a cold, grey January in London.

Maybe that’s not as odd as it sounds when you remember that’s when Pocket Gamer Connects London will mark the start of our 2019 series of international events.

Europe’s biggest B2B mobile games industry event returns once more to London venue, The Brewery, on January 21st to 22nd with 2,500 delegates hungry for two days of networking, demos, Big Indie Pitches and, of course, a packed conference schedule.

Featuring no fewer than 20 tracks delivered by more than 200 of the world’s foremost games practitioners, the seminars will cover all the bases from essential insight for newcomers to the latest industry trends and forecasts.

And we’re already looking for world-class speakers to share their expertise with our international audience in London.

VR, AR, handheld consoles and blockchain

Mobile games will always be at the heart of what we do, but our conferences also address the wider games market across multiple platforms. That’s why we introduced the Connects X track, dedicated to VR, AR and handheld console scene.

We’ll also have terabytes of PC games, as well as a whole event entirely dedicated to blockchain gaming in the form of Blockchain Gamer Connects, hot from its 2018 appearances in San Francisco and Helsinki.

Call for speakers

We’re still busy putting the finishing touches to an already stellar lineup of talent for Connects’ last hurrah of the year this September in Helsinki (September 11th to 12th), but our thoughts are already turning to our return to the City of London and the first event of 2019.

We’re inviting anyone interested in speaking at Pocket Gamer Connects London - or PC and Blockchain Gamer - to get in touch now. We’re particularly looking for experts on these topics:

  • Influencer marketing
  • Blockchain/cryptocurrency/ICO
  • Live ops
  • Esports
  • Company culture
  • Team management
  • Technical workshops
  • Diversity
  • Indie success/failure stories
  • Business strategy
