Pocket Gamer Connects – THE Global Mobile Games Industry Conference
Back at the spiritual home of mobile gaming for its seventh time! Leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, returns to Helsinki in 2020 - ever bigger, ever better. Some 1,500 delegates will gather for two days to hear from 200 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile, PC and console gaming industries. Filling 16 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from monetisation to the latest development trends and company culture.

New Features
Conference tracks for 2020 keep our audience at the cutting edge of the industry. And there are a plethora of themes this year. Game Maker Insights brings practical hands-on advice to studios. There's Vision & Values: Company Setup & Culture, and Big Screen Gaming which brings PC and console to the mix. UA University introduces the dark arts of user acquisition, and our Game Changers area covers cloud gaming, 5G, subscription services and more. Hypercasual and instant games join blockchain gaming, and we also see the return of favourites like Live Ops Landscape, Esports + Influencers, Monetiser, The Growth Track, The Indie Track, Trade Trends, East Meets West and XR Connects. And last but not least, Finest Finland goes behind the scenes on the region's success stories.

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 more than 1,500 industry professionals.

The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the whole mobile 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
Investor Connector and Publisher SpeedMatch: our "speed dating"-style 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 Pocket Gamer Connects champions their work to our international audience. The show floor 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 Very Big Indie Pitches will be back in force with indie devs competing to impress a panel of expert judges. Mobile, handheld, PC, console and XR projects are all welcome. The winners walk away with armfuls of prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars.

Established International Audience
More than 25,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Canada, Finland, Jordan and India with a genuinely international client base; on average, delegates from more than 40 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 Helsinki 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, Tencent, Telltale, Apple, Rovio, Disney, Wargaming, Kabam, NTT Docomo, Ubisoft, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Sega, Capcom, Unity, Twitter, Twitch and many, many, many more.

Party Hearty
And if that all sounds a bit serious, day one 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…
