[Update] Last chance to join over 900 execs from 45 countries on 13-14 January for PG Connects London

Pocket Gamer Connects London is kicking off on Tuesday 13th January (or tomorrow if you're reading on the same day this story was updated) and it looks set once again be the biggest pure mobile games show in Europe.

Sign ups have continued to flow in over the last weeks, so we're delighted to be able to share that this year's show is set to smash last year's numbers with a final tally of speakers, sponsors and delegates set to number well over 900 mobile gaming execs from 45 countries.

Amongst them we have yet more awesome new speakers including representatives from Games Workshop (to talk about brand and licensing on east meets west), Japanese ad agency Interspace and Ian Livingstone returning to the GamEDU track.

It's not too late to join them either as final developer and non-developer tickets are still on sale today.

Global Mobile Game Developers

So who's coming? Naturally there's a very strong representation from UK businesses, but over half of the attendees will be visiting from beyond these shores with delegates from Europe (east and west), the Nordics and Russia, a strong contingent from the US and Canada plus representation from Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. 

As usual there'll be a strong focus on the actual game-makers, with around 60% of the attendees being independent developers, rising to over 75% when larger developers and publishers are added to the mix.

And this number includes a range of the biggest and most innovative companies from all over the world including: Kabam, Nordeus, Game Insight, Perfect World, Chukong, Tencent, Bigpoint, Flare Games, Goodgames, Creative Mobile, Rovio, Seriously, Bandai Namco, BBC, Daum Kakao, Gamevil, Reliance Games, Fincon, Madfinger, Space Ape, Revolution, Frogmind, Etermax, Gumi, Hitcents, Handy Games, Unity, Miniclip, Ndemic, Vlambeer, Nexon, Mike Bithell, Mediatonic, Nexon, Natural Motion, Revolution, Rebellion, Electronic Arts, Sega, Spil Games, Nexon, SkyMobi, Peter Molyneux, Tag Games, Etermax, Team17, Codemasters, Tivola, Wooga, Kukouri, Spellgun, Lumo, Fireproof Studios, Sega, Cheetah Mobile, Somethin’ Else, 6Waves, CMGE, Animoca and Mind Candy.

Infrastructure power

The remaining attendees are made up from key members representing the rest of the whole of the mobile games industry ecosystem, including:

  • ALL the major platform owners (Apple, Amazon, Google and Sony)
  • Social media networks (Facebook and Twitter)
  • Development middleware (Unity, Marmalade and Exit Games)
  • Data providers (App Annie, Omniata, Taking Data and Newzoo)
  • Brand owners (BBC, Games Workshop, KLM and Warner)
  • Advertising and UA companies (Applift, AdColony, Fyber, Tune, Interspace)
  • Investors (Agnitio, Seahorn Capital and Mercia Fund Management)
  • Expert Consultants (Nick Lovell, Oscar Clark, Mark Sorrell and Nick Parker)
  • Regional development agencies (UKTI, Northern Island Screen, NeoGames, NGI, Playa and Kuovola)
  • Academic & Training Initiatives (Westminster University, Creative Skillset, Oulo, SAE and UCL)
  • Mainstream & Specialist Media (Guardian, Wired, Develop and the Telegraph as well as Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and 148Apps)

With all these and many more in attendance, plus seven conference tracks, three networking events (dinner, party and drink up), two separate developer pitches and one amazing match-making meeting system it’s shaping up to be a great conference and the perfect way to kick off what we hope will be a prosperous 2015.

If you're not among that number just yet, there’s still time to join the fun at London’s Vinopolis on 13-14th January. Just pop along to for more information or click directly here for tickets.
