Eric Seufert, Carly Drew, Nicoll Hunt, Vladimir Funtikov join Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016 speakers

December is when we ramp up our unveiling of content for the upcoming Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016 conference on 18th-19th January.

Exciting times.

Yes, we've previously revealed our advisory board, outlined the seven tracks on offer, and announced that we're bringing VR along for the ride in a big way.

But central to making all this content shine are the speakers. By the time we're finished we'll have more than 130 of the finest minds from within the mobile games world covering every aspect of our industry. From global games publishing advice to monetisation secrets to indie survival tips to workshops to inspiration and even celebration, you can expect the usual all-encompassing PGC package.

Here, then, are the next 12 names that will make all of the above possible. Listed alphabetically, by company, to mix things up a little:

  • Sylvain Cornillon, Bossa Studios
  • Vladimir Funtikov, Creative Mobile
  • Nicoll Hunt, I Fight Bears
  • Maarten Noyons, IMGA
  • Teemu Huuhtanen, Next Games
  • Michael Schade, Rockfish Games
  • Eric Seufert, Rovio
  • Carri Cunliffe, Secret Sauce
  • Brian Baglow, Team Rock
  • Stuart Dredge, Tech Journalist/The Guardian
  • Sam Loveridge, Trusted Reviews
  • Carly Drew, Wizards of the Coast

They join a sizeable group already, which includes representatives from other big names such as Kabam, Seriously, Miniclip, Google, Amazon, Unity, Scopely, EA, Sega, Gamevil, Chillingo, Tribleflame, TinyBuild, Lumo, Immersion, Wooga, Playraven, Traveller's Tales, Bandai Namco and many more.

There are still plenty more speakers to officially announce this month, but you can get a head start by sneaking a peek at those already revealed over on the PG Connects London site.

And if you've not yet got a ticket for Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016 note that the last few days of Mid Term tickets are now in effect. So, erm, book now or pay more later.
