More than 950 delegates will gather for the two days on May 13-14 to hear from 150 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile and PC gaming industries. Filling 10 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from monetisation to the latest development trends.
One Ticket, Two Conferences
An exciting addition for this year is our shiny new dedicated event, PC Connects. Find out why 2019 will be the 'PC revolution' – and why everything you know is wrong. Detailing how and why the PC games industry will change significantly and forever are 50 speakers representing every corner of the ecosystem, who will educate and inspire through an agenda set to cover trends, marketing, publishing, development knowhow, and strategies to thrive in this evolving sector.
New conference tracks for 2019 keep our audience at the cutting edge of the industry, including live ops, hypercasual & instant messenger games, AI, future tech, influencer marketing and blockchain gaming, as well as company culture, market overviews, industry trends, indie development, and case studies.
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 event organisers, we offer our Pitch & Match meeting scheduler free 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 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 and Connects champions their work to our international audience. The showfloor 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 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 15,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, North America, 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 - and our US event continues to grow year-on-year.
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.
And if that all sounds a bit serious, Day 1 closes with our infamous Global Connects party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
