A chance to demo your game one-on-one with our consumer writers
Developers: book your appointment to meet journalists at Pocket Gamer Connects now

[UPDATE: January 2019 appointments now fully booked, sorry! It may still be possible for us to see your game – please come along to the Pocket Gamer Journalist Bar between 2pm and 5pm, on either 21 or 22 January, where we will be accepting walk-up meetings if journalists are available. Alternatively, delegates can request meetings through the Pitch & Match system – or track us down at the actual bar after hours.]

There are a thousand reasons to come to Pocket Gamer Connectsin London in January 2019. The networking, the workshops, the panels and talks, the parties. But if you're a developer working on a game, one of the most valuable benefits of joining 2,500 professionals at the leading mobile games conference is the chance to meet the press.

Our sister site, the longest-running and leading b2c mobile gaming site, will be joining us at The Brewery, on 21-22 January. If you're an indie developer working on a game, this could be your chance to get it on the experts' radar. 

It can be hard to pin a journalist down, even at a venue like PGC. So we've taken some of the randomness out of it with our Journalist Bar. It's a place to show up and meet a member of the Pocket Gamer consumer team. These are writers and editors who will have 15-minute appointments available to check out new games. The mornings will be by appointment only, the afternoons will be for walk-ins.


To avoid disappointment, please make an appointment. Then we can ensure there's a member of the Pocket Gamer team there waiting for you at that time. 

If you're unable to make an appointment for the Monday or Tuesday mornings, the Journalist Bar will be open in the afternoons for people to drop in. The team can't promise any specific coverage following a meeting, but it's a great way to get an experienced editor or reviewer to check out your game and perhaps give instant feedback.

Please note: you also need to be registered for PG Connects, a Journalist Bar appointment is not a ticket to enter the conference and does not guarantee entry. Appointments are first come, first served so if you visit that link and there are no available slots... sorry. There will be walk-in time at the show in the afternoons, with Pocket Gamer staff available on our stand as much as possible. You might also want to formally show your indie game to the Big Indie Pitch judges
