Match up with publishers and developers at PG Connects London 2017

The Publisher SpeedMatch returns to Pocket Gamer Connects London 2017 to give 20 developers and 20 publishers the opportunity to make some lucrative deals happen.

The track is specifically aimed at developers looking for publishers (regional or international) and publishers looking for developers and/or new games.

Each session will enable the shortlisted participants to take part in a two-hour stint of speed-date style meetings where they can make initial contact to discuss their ideas and goals.


Deals are unlikely to be closed in such a time, of course, but participants are free to follow-up on the most interesting meetings for a longer discussion during the rest of the conference or after.

The Publisher SpeedMatch is open to all attendees of PG Connects London 2017. There's no additional charge but there is a filtering process.

If you're interested in taking part you'll need to register for a ticket to the conference, which you can grab here.

You'll then be sent an invite to sign up for the Publisher SpeedMatch, as well as the all new Investor SpeedMatch.

Tickets PG Connects are still available, and what's more, they'll even get you into our sister-conference VR Connects for free!
