Wednesday, 5 August 2015 from 19:00 to 23:00 (CEST)
Pocket Gamer announces Mobile Mixer event for Gamescom!
It’s almost time for Gamescom again, and you know what that means. Another massive Pocket Gamer Mobile Mixer!
In case you haven’t been to one before, our mobile mixer is the perfect networking event to end a busy day at a show. With an entertaining panel featuring big name industry figures, opportunities to chat with people from across the industry and free drinks galore, you’re bound to have a good time (and maybe do some business too!)
This year’s Gamescom mixer, which is sponsored by our friends at Immersion and Cashplay & Chukong, will be taking place at 7pm on 5th August at Wartesaal on the banks of the Rhine just after our Big Indie Pitch. Cashplay will be hosting a live games tournament at the event. Come along and prove your abilities playing Dead Trigger 2 and battle other attendees to win your share of $500 in REAL CASH prizes being given away at the event.
And at 7:30pm, our panel will be taking to their seats for a 25 minute chat about the big issues of the week. Talking about what we’ve learnt at GDC Europe and what we’re hoping to see at Gamescom, this’ll be a great way to get the mobile gaming perspective on the hottest news of the week.
We’ll be announcing our panellists soon, but make sure you go grab your Mobile Mixer ticket for free right now. It’s free to attend but we always fill up fast, so sign up now and bring along a business card to get in the door on the night.
Also don't forget we are hosting a Big Indie Pitch directly before this event in the same venue so get yourself signed up to attend or pitch your game to the press! More information available here.
