What Will You Discover?

We've run 30 Connects events now since 2014, and since 2020 we moved them online because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But just because you're familiar with the format, don't think you've seen it all before! Pocket Gamer Connects Digital NEXT will take place100% online, and feature new track themes, new fringe events, and new video content designed to look to the future.

You can expect three days of talks and panels streamed over the web. There'll be a MeetToMatch meeting platform as usual which will enable remote attendees to connect over the internet.

Talks And Panels

New topic areas for this exclusive event include Mastering New Markets, Revenue Roadmap, Next Gen Platforms, Conquer The Cloud and Game Booster, in addition to all your favourites, like Developer Toolkit. Following on immediately after PG Connects Digital NEXT is Beyond Games, our two-day partner event, and you’ll have access to that too! Tracks at Beyond Games include Mapping The Metaverse, The New NFT Economies, Transmedia Trends, Influencer Marketing and more.

Networking For All

A Pocket Gamer Connects conference is a place to get business done. It's famous for being a place where new connections are made (hence the name) and productive meetings take place. You'll be able to network with over 1,200 industry professionals at this online event, and we will do our best to make that easy.

We'll bring together the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and AAA publishers. Unlike some other events, we offer our MeetToMatch meeting scheduler free to all delegates, with unlimited requests, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.

Fringe Benefits

Curated fringe events like our Publisher SpeedMatch, Money Maker and Investor Connector events pair developers in rapid succession with a series of publishers or investors. They're exclusive sessions where our experts hand-pick businesses who we know will find objectives in common. 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. Early application is advised as they fill up quickly and cannot be joined on the day.

Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile and PC games industry and Pocket Gamer Connects always champions their work. Our hugely popular Big Indie and PC 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.

Look out for the application links once you've bought your Pocket Gamer Connects ticket!

Meet The Media

We welcome regional and international specialist media to our events so that your games reach 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.

If you’re looking for feedback on a project, check out our "Journalist Bar" for a free consultation from professional games journalists from sites including PocketGamer.com. Our editors can also be contacted through the meeting platform all week.

Optional extra: grab a b2b G-STAR 2021 ticket!

It's that time of year when our thoughts also turn to G-STAR. If you’re considering attending G-STAR in South Korea in November, you can add a ticket to your Pocket Gamer Connects purchase at checkout!

G-STAR is the biggest games event in Korea and one of the biggest in Asia, indeed the world. Now gearing up for its 17th edition, this year's dates have been announced as November 17th to 21st.

Each November anyone who’s anyone in the Asia-Pacific industry – along with a solid overseas contingent from the US and Europe – descend upon the beautiful beachside town of Busan in Korea for a week of intense networking, business dealing and a little games industry fun too!

In previous years the b2b part of the show attracted over 2,500 business delegates to the BEXCO arena and to mitigate the effects of COVID, this year (including the G-CON conference) will run as an online and offline parallel exhibition. Korea is in the top five global game markets and the entire domestic ecosystem will be involved in the event.

For overseas attendees, G-STAR has become the gateway to the Asia-Pacific region. It’s not just about Korea either, G-STAR has long offered a friendly entry point to the wider APAC markets of China, Japan and SEA which collectively represent the very biggest cluster in the world.

Add a G-STAR ticket when you register for PGC Digital NEXT

If you buy your ticket from us, you'll save money - we're able to offer G-STAR as an add-on, frozen at the £75 Early Bird price (tickets are as much as $200 from other sources).

Not only will you get a chance to connect with C-level decision-makers from the region, but we've found the conference easily accessible and everyone speaks English, making it a great opportunity for Western developers and publishers looking to expand their business in Asia. It's also possible to register for the Indie Game process.

Remember to add G-STAR as an add-on at checkout here, making the process of buying a ticket smooth and simple. Please note: if you select to attend G-STAR, Steel Media Ltd will need to share necessary ticket information with the G-STAR organisers.
