Read on to find out what awaits at Pocket Gamer Connects MENA.

8 jam-packed conference tracks

The conference schedule spans across both days with incredible analysis and insight for all industry professionals. Delivered by 80 speakers, you can expect over 35 hours of cutting-edge content ranging from the games industry’s latest industry trends to influencers and LiveOps.

We’ll share more details about the conference tracks shortly.

The showfloor

The expo space will contain a dedicated showcase area for developers, big or small, to show off their talent to an industry audience. The Big Indie Zone is an area focused on the work of indie teams and lone developers and it’s a vibrant and creative expo area for publishers looking to sign promising titles. It's always one of the most popular features at the conference.

With our free online meeting scheduler, you can organise your meetings with ease

Not only that, but it’s also a great opportunity for Indies to come together and catch up with old friends or make new ones, and see what the competition is working on.

Unlimited tools of networking

At Pocket Gamer Connects, we give you the tools to make the connections that are crucial for your business. With 800 attendees joining us, our online meeting scheduler is free to all delegates, so you can organise your meetings with ease.

And if that wasn’t enough, check out our SpeedMatch sessions, which pair developers speed-dating-style with publishers, connecting you to other gaming professionals quickly and efficiently.
