Early Bird rate for PG Connects Helsinki 2016 is running out

Tick tock, tick tock, the clock will stop
Early Bird rate for PG Connects Helsinki 2016 is running out

Early Bird tickets for Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki, taking place on September 5th-6th, end this week.

Midnight July 20th, to be precise.

If you came last year, and you're part of the 96% gorgeous souls who said they'd return in 2016 but have yet to grab your pass, we respect the last-minute dramatic stance.

You're welcome to push that to the limit for maximum Hollywood action hero style and leave it until the final seconds of Wednesday so long as you remember to factor in the registration time required to book tickets. Not too cool, otherwise.

If you didn't come last year, you missed out.

But take comfort from the fact that for this latest sequel we're going bigger and badder, cramming the 2 days with 8 tracks featuring 100+ leading speakers (King, Boomlagoon, Wooga, Rovio, Seriously, Gamevil, Frogmind and many more already confirmed)...

And countless opportunities to network with the 400+ companies and more than 800 delegates representing everyone from indies to triple-A publishers to tool providers to games media to investors.

We'll start unveiling content soon, but for now you can check out the PGC Helsinki billing below. You can join the cast here.
