The leading games industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects returns to the heartland of mobile gaming that is Helsinki, Finland this October 1st & 2nd.

The two-day event will form the core of the week-long Finnish Games Week that also includes the Leadership Day by IGDA Finland.

More than 1,500 attendees will gather for two days of impactful networking at every level, from first-time jobseekers to C-level executives representing some of the biggest brands in the world.

The two-day event is a must for Indies this October 1st and 2nd - here's why!

The Big Indie Zone

  • An exclusive expo area, dedicated to indie developers and their games.
  • Developers can pre-book a two-day demo table (inc: conference passes, making this an excellent value option).

Get your game in front of publishers looking for new talent, investors in search of their next focus, service providers keen to share the benefits of their tools, plus other developers and exchange ideas with your contemporaries.
