Event description

Description

(NOTE: The bus ticket does not include entry to the conferences – you'll need a conference ticket to get access to the event(s). There are discounted and even free options available – see details below.)

It's that time of the year again: The Connects Conference Series returns to Helsinki with added bonus features!

If you work within mobile games, Pocket Gamer Connects is THE place to be. Whether you want to stay on top of the latest trends and technology, meet investors and grow your professional network, or pitch your game – PGC has it all.

Industry veterans will be sharing their knowledge and experiences on several aspects of mobile gaming, while the hottest indie devs get a chance to showcase their games at I Love Indie Showcase and The Very Big Indie Pitch, a pitching competition with awesome prizes and an excellent opportunity for exposure. As if all this wasn't reason enough to join the conference there is also going to be an epic Pocket Gamer Party you don't want to miss.

New for 2017!

XR Connects Helsinki is a brand new event for the VR/AR/MR industry created by Steel Media, the team behind the PG Connects series of conferences, Pocket Gamer, PG.biz, The Virtual Report, and the Global VR Challenge.
The event will bring together 500 delegates from across the VR/AR/MR industry (with a focus on hardware manufacturers, entertainment/game/educational/experiential developers, publishers, investors, media, and more). It will combine a lively expo space with 2 days of focused conference tracks spread over 4 tracks and covering the key questions facing the industry (global trends, technical and design issues, monetisation & business strategy, future technologies).

Plus!
PC Connects is a new conference dedicated to the modern digital PC games industry.
Bringing together all parts of the international ecosystem – from indie developers and media, through to platforms and middleware companies, through to triple-A publishers and investors – the show will educate and inspire through 5 tracks of talks (digital retailing; game design & live ops; eSports; influencers & creative marketing; indie excellence), showcase talent with an expo, and facilitate business through dedicated pitches and match-making sessions, a complimentary open meeting system, and organised networking activity.

Both new events will take place in the same venue as PG Connects and your conference pass will allow access to all three conferences!
