Everyone come! We’re taking our very successful Global Conference Series to the United States again, and we’ve got all the details for you plus a super special Super Early Bird discount at the end of this article.
Over 25,000 delegates from all corners of the gaming industry have attended our popular Connects series in London, Helsinki, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Hong Kong, Jordan and Bangalore, since its debut in 2014. Over the past two years our events have been purely digital due to the pandemic, but with the massive success of our recent hybrid conference in London, we are pleased to announce that we will be launching our overseas conferences again this summer with an event in Seattle and you can start buying tickets today. Some 1,000 gaming industry participants will gather in town on May 9-10 to network, discover, present and learn from 150 of the world’s leading authorities.
Mobile, PC and console, blockchain, VR/AR and more will be covered in multiple track rooms. Our speakers and panelists will share their expert perspective on design and development, monetization and growth, new technologies, corporate culture and much more.
Networking for all
As always, the conference program will be filled with our short and sharp seminars. Our speakers cut straight to the nitty-gritty – something you can also do by networking with some 1,000 industry professionals.
The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the entire gaming industry, from students and independent studios to international media, investors and publishers. We offer our free and unlimited MeetToMatch meeting platform to all delegates, so you can find the perfect contact and set up an in-person meeting.
There’s a reason 97% of participants would recommend Pocket Gamer Connects to their network and 96% let us know they’d be interested in coming back for more. No other event connects you to the entire mobile gaming ecosystem quite like our Connects conferences, and our conference series is a great place to globalize your network and improve your business strategy for next year.
Connect developers with publishers and investors
Our Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector sessions match developers in quick succession with a series of publishers and investors in a series of speed-dating style meetings. These short and precise meetings allow you to have a first contact followed by a longer meeting if you find a potential partner. It’s a showcase for developers to display their products and a prospect pipeline for anyone looking to recruit promising talent. And in 2022, we’ll also be offering our Money Maker sessions at live events, so you can expect to get one-on-one insight into UA, growth, and best practices for ads. We have compiled testimonials from attendees about these matchmaking events here for your convenience, read why these events are some of the most sought after matchmaking opportunities in the industry.
Meet the media
We welcome regional and international specialist media to our events so that your work reaches the widest possible audience. With our own publishing powerhouse behind us, you can rest assured that our industry journalists will be on hand for demos, interviews and other ways to get your brand or project out to the online community outside of event walls.
All about India
Independent developers are the lifeblood of the mobile games industry. Pocket Gamer Connects champions its work to our international audience. The showroom has a dedicated Big Indie area for familiar names and up-and-comers to showcase their talent to an industry audience. It is a dynamic and varied exhibition space for publishers looking to sign promising titles.
And of course, our wildly popular Very Big Indie Pitches will be back in full force with indie developers competing to impress a panel of expert judges. Winners walk away with prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars. Here’s what former participants have to say about it.
To sum up the amount of opportunities available for indie developers at our events, here’s an article on everything the London conference offered for indie developers that you can also expect to see in Seattle!
Keep networking after hours
Don’t worry, this will all be too bad. Day one ends with our free Global Connects party! This is where the networking goes into the night and you could make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
Established international audience
Over 30,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014.
