Pocket Gamer Connects – THE Global Mobile Games Industry Conference

Leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, comes to Jordan for the first time! Around 800 delegates will gather for the two days in November to hear from 80 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile gaming industry. Filling eight wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from business basics, to investment ideas, influencer promotion and beyond.

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 800 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 Pitch & Match meeting scheduler 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 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, consultancy 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

Small, independent devlopers are the lifeblood of the mobile games industry and Connects champions their work to our international audience. The show floor has a dedicated expo area 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 Big Indie Pitch 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. This will be the third time we've run a Big Indie Pitch in the MENA region and you can read about previous winners here.

Established International Audience

More than 18,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, the USA, Canada, Finland, and India with a genuinely international client base; on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event.

In 2016, we became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and have stayed on top ever since. Every event has been bigger and better than the last. New cities in 2019 will include Seattle and Hong Kong.

Not only have our previous delegates voted Connects the 'best value conference', but 97% would recommend it to a colleague and 96% tell us they’ll come back for more.

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.

Party Hearty

And if that all sounds a bit serious, day one closes with our fabulous Global Connects party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
