Discover PC, console and XR gaming at the biggest industry conference of 2020

Europe’s biggest B2B games industry conference Pocket Gamer Connects returns to London on January 20th and 21st 2020, with a brand new event that adds PC, console and XR gaming.

While Pocket Gamer Connects has typically been a mobile-focused event, for 2020, it will celebrate all aspects of gaming. Building on the PC Connects conference from previous years, it adds talks and panels about console games to the mix. The newly expanded Big Screen Gaming stage will debut at Pocket Gamer Connects London in January, and is already shaping up to be a must-see event for developers, publishers and investors working in the PC and console space. You'll also learn more about the current VR, AR and XR scene, as Big Screen Gaming incorporates the best of previous years' VR Connects activities. 

The new umbrella event is packed: Big Screen Gaming brings you six new tracks, 60 speakers and 40 sessions delivered by the likes of Riot Games, Super Evil Megacorp, Jagex, Green Man Gaming and many more. They will cover topics such as the current state of PC and console gaming, building IPs that last, and cross-platform publishing.

Games industry legend Ian Livingstone CBE will be speaking in London again this year.

Steel Media COO Dave Bradley says: "Importantly, Pocket Gamer Connects isn’t just about mobile any more. Taking place in London are partner conferences Big Screen Gaming (console and PC) and Blockchain Gamer LIVE! (blockchain), which are included in the ticket price. All three shows take place under one roof!"

The London team is revealing more details about PC, console and XR speakers every day, so make sure you bookmark the official Big Screen Gaming site.
