*Please note this article has been updated as of December 15, 2021 to reflect newly announced dates for Pocket Gamer Connects London 2022

Pocket Gamer Connects attendees understand the value of a Connects conference, and a key part of what makes our events so unmissable are all the curated matchmaking activities and networking opportunities. Whereas in many conferences, it’s fully upon you to individually seek out conversations, we give attendees looking to form these crucial connections a leg up through exciting fringe events they can sign up to take part in ahead of the conference.

We are bringing you more networking opportunities than ever before at our upcoming live conference in London. We also have multiple themed tracks covering the most significant topics facing the games industry today spanning everything from the Metaverse to Blockchain, Ad Insights, Global Trends, and much more. Join 1500+ attendees in exploring what’s next for the industry and make life-changing connections at our London event on February 14-15.

Read on for a glimpse at the networking opportunities you can have if you sign up for the conference this February!
