Pocket Gamer Connects – The Global Mobile Games Industry Conference

The leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, returns to the region in May 2022.

After two years away because of the pandemic, we're returning to the same popular venue as before. Some 1,000 attendees from the games industry will gather in town on May 9-10 to network, discover, pitch and learn from 150 of the world’s leading authorities.

Mobile, PC and console, blockchain, VR/AR and more will be covered, across multiple track rooms. Our speakers and panellists will share their expert insight into design and development, monetisation and growth, new technologies, company culture and loads more.

For sponsorships or other business development opportunities please contact Lisa at lisa.bisset@steelmedianetwork.com or book a meeting to discuss your needs at: https://calendly.com/lisa-bisset

Networking For All

As ever, the conference schedule will be packed with our trademark short, sharp seminars. Our speakers get straight down to business - which is what you’ll be able to do too, networking with some 1,000 industry professionals.

The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and publishers. We offer our MeetToMatch meeting platform free and unlimited 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 ecosystem like our Connects conferences.

Pairing Developers With Publishers And Investors

Our Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector 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 in 2022 we'll be bringing our Money Maker sessions to live events too, so you can expect to get one-to-one insight into UA, growth and best practice for ads.

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. 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 winners walk away with prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars.

Keep The Networking Going After Hours

Don't worry that it will all be too serious. Day one closes with our free Global Connects party! That’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
