Get the latest on Nintendo's first mobile game, Disney's plans, and more in PGC San Francisco's Superstar Sessions

We’re opening PG Connects San Francisco (#PGCSanFran) with a bang, as we wheel out the superstars of the mobile gaming industry in a new addition to the PGC track roster.

Over the course of two hours, we’ll have conversations with some of the biggest names in the industry about topics that will dominate the state of play for years to come.
While we can’t reveal everything about the Superstar Sessions yet, you can these talks aim to set the agenda both for the show - which also boasts the already announced East Meets West, Indie Survival Guide, Acquire, Engage, Monetize, and Future of Mobile Gaming main tracks - and the wider industry.

Confirmed sessions include:

Disney Mobile Games SVP/GM Chris Heatherly sits down with Pocket Gamer to discuss The Walt Disney Company's growing mobile games business and how it’s tapping into one of the largest brand portfolios to create new Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar experiences for mobile.

Shintaro Asako, CEO of DeNA in the West, will join us for a fireside chat only a few months ahead of the launch of the first Nintendo mobile game.

And Josh Yguado, President of SGN, will be talking to us about the social gaming scene in San Francisco and what the future holds for the Bay-based behemoths.

That's it for the tracks, then.

Together they offer up more than 100 individual sessions over two days being delivered by 80+ speakers, alongside our usual array of fringe events to really cram things into an unmissable package. We'll unveil the complete schedule listing very soon.

For now, note that the Mid Term tickets deadline is fast approaching.

With three boys under the age of 12, former Edge editor Joao has given up his dream of making it to F1 and instead spends his weekends transforming his living room floor into a venue for hosting increasingly complex Scalextric tracks. When in work mode, he looks after the production (aka the behind-the-scenes magic) of Steel Media's series of conferences.
