Content is king

Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco 2015 will offer two days packed with 4 main tracks:

  • Top mobile marketing and user life cycle tips in Acquire, Engage, Monetise;
  • Key overview and data from global experts in East Meets West;
  • Essential advice on how to keen an independent studio afloat in Indie Survival Guide;
  • and a look ahead at emerging technologies in The Future of the Industry.

Crammed into this already condensed-but-beautifully-formed package are our usual fringe event offerings, namely the I Love Indie Showcase to support up-and-coming talent, The Very Big Indie Pitch competition (still open for entries), and PG Party.

We're far from done yet, though, so watch this space.
