Leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, returns to The Cable Factory, Helsinki!
The Global Mobile Games Industry Conference
More than 1,200 delegates will gather for two days to hear from 200 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile gaming industry. Filling over 20 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from monetisation and the latest development trends to blockchain and exploring the metaverse.
Conference tracks for 2022 keep our audience at the cutting edge of the industry. And there are new themes this year. Mapping The Metaverse explores developments in the immersive space, while ASO Insights, Marketing Mavens and UA Update cover the best ways to promote your game and bring in users. There's also a CFO Insider track for those working at the sharp end of studio finance. Building on Blockchain provides an introduction to the blockchain gaming scene, and we also see the return of favourites like Live Ops Landscape, Esports Innovation, Monetiser, The Growth Track and more.
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 1,200 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 the MeetToMatch 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
Our fringe events are back! We'll be running Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector live at the venue. These curated 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.
And there's the Very Big Indie Pitch too...
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. The pitching competition is open to mobile, PC, console, VR and AR developers this year.
The winners could walk away with prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars, coverage on the site, useful feedback, plus the warm glow of celebration.
The Networking Continues
And if that all sounds a bit serious, day one closes with our wonderful Global Connects party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
Established International Audience
More than 30,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, America, Canada, Hong Kong, 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. During the pandemic, we ran a series of entirely-online conferences, which garnered positive feedback during the difficult years of 2020 and 2021.
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.
More opportunities to take part
We’re always looking for more sponsors, as well as volunteers, and there are free tickets for students and journalists. Terms and conditions apply. Drop us a line to find out more.
You can find details of the fringe event schedule and party venue, as well as FAQs to help with the meeting platform, at www.pgconnects.com/helsinki in the days before the conference.

Trail is redefining the future of gaming by bringing the best mobile games to the web.
Why is it important?
Billions of people surf the web daily to entertain themselves, reading blogs, watching movies, listening to music and much more. But what they have not been able to do is play high quality games. If you want to play professionally-made games, you either need to download and install game clients on your computer, or reach to your mobile for a more accessible experience.
By enabling professionally-made games to be played in the browser, more people are able to enjoy great games, and game studios can find brand new audiences.
How are we different?
Trail makes gaming easier than watching YouTube by allowing games to be played in the browser. No downloads. No installs. No paywalls. Just play. The time it takes to start playing a game on Trail is less than the time it takes to finish reading this sentence. Don’t believe us? Just visit www.trail.gg and enjoy zero-friction gaming.
