PG CONNECTS NOW INCORPORATING BIG SCREEN GAMING!

Leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, returns to the US - and lands in Seattle for the second time. Over 1,000 delegates will gather for two days in May to hear from 100 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile and PC gaming industries. Filling multiple themed conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from live ops to monetization to the latest development trends.

One Ticket, Two Conferences

Following PC Connects' presence last year, our dedicated PC/console event has evolved into Big Screen Gaming, a full partner event. Focusing deeply on the key issues at the core of the vibrant PC and console games industry are 40 speakers representing every corner of the ecosystem, who will educate and inspire through an agenda set to cover trends, marketing, publishing, development know-how, and strategies to thrive in this evergreen sector.

New Features

New conference tracks keep our audience at the cutting edge of the industry, including cloud gaming, sustainable game development, live ops, hypercasual & instant messenger games, AI, future tech, influencer marketing and blockchain gaming, as well as indie development, case studies, and the all-important Visions & Values track covering games industry company culture.

Networking For All

As ever, the conference schedule will be packed with our trademark short, sharp seminars. With no time to waffle, our speakers get straight down to business - which is what you’ll be able to do too, networking with some 1,000 industry professionals.

The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and publishers. Unlike other events, we offer our meeting platform free and unlimited to all delegates, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.

No other event puts you in touch with the entire mobile gaming industry like our Connects conferences.

Pairing Developers With Publishers And Investors

Our Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector sessions pair developers in rapid succession with a series of publishers and investors in a series of speed-dating style meetings. 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.

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 industry 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.

All About The Indies

Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile games industry. Pocket Gamer Connects and Big Screen Gaming champion their work to our international audience. The show floor has a dedicated Big Indie Zone for known names and newcomers alike to display their talent to an industry audience. This is a vibrant and varied expo area for publishers looking to sign promising titles.

And of course, our hugely popular Very Big 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.

Established International Audience

More than 27,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, Canada, USA, Finland, Hong Kong, Jordan and India with a genuinely international client base; on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event. (With the advent of the Digital conference, we have seen this number grow! There were 68 countries represented at our June online event.) We know that over 70% of our audience works in game creation/publishing.

In 2016, PG Connects became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and has stayed on top ever since. Every event has been bigger and better than the last, and since 2017 we’ve added VR/AR, PC, console and blockchain to the mix.

Previous speakers and delegates from all the key industry players include Supercell, King, Space Ape Games, Niantic, SYBO, Tencent, Mythical Games, Unity, Jam City, Skybound, Apple, Rovio, Disney, Super Evil Megacorp, Wargaming, Kabam, NetEase, NTT Docomo, Ubisoft, Facebook, Google, Square Enix, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Sega, Capcom, Twitter, Snapchat, Twitch, NaturalMotion, N3TWORK and many, many, many more. If you'd like to speak at PGC Digital, or another of our upcoming events, please sign up using our Speaker Submission form.

And because Steel Media owns and operates the leading media in this space too, including PocketGamer.com, PocketGamer.biz and PCGamesInsider.biz, our events benefit from unrivalled press coverage. A combined website readership of well over a million users a month, 300,000 engaged Twitter followers, nearly 120,000 subscribers on YouTube, all await. Our events include opportunities where you can show writers and editors your games.
