We'll continue to unveil regular updates about the conference over the coming weeks so that by the time we're done you should expect a programme featuring 7 tracks, 80+ sessions, 100+ speakers and, perhaps most crucially, an agenda that rightly focuses on the areas that will mostly benefit the audience.

Get the lowdown

For now, we can give you a decent breakdown of what we're shaping up to:

  • East Meets West: Going Global – includes insight into trends in Asia, LatAm, and emerging markets, as well as a focus on eSports and, of course, brands
  • Indie Futures – get the lowdown on the strategies, tools, and techniques needed to thrive in today's mobile games market
  • Monetize, Retain, Acquire – how to establish a model that will keep your players returning and spending before you have to dish out the UA dollars
  • Mobile Games University – carefully curated curriculum very much focused on practical advice on how to succeed as a mobile games developer
  • Show Me The Money – how to locate and select the investment avenue that could transform your business
  • Future Visions – from pinpointing the real size of the VR opportunity to deciding what other technologies and trends should be on your radar
  • Made In BC – Coming to Canada means you take time to celebrate the best in gaming from British Columbia

And those are just the main tracks. There's plenty of fringe material to keep everyone going:

  • The Very Big Indie Pitch – massively popular indie developer competition
  • 20/20 SpeedMatch – An exclusive session enabling shortlisted developers and publishers to make initial contact during a dedicated 2-hour stint of speed-date style meetings
  • I Love Indie Showcase – an exlusive expo area within the conference dedicated to indie developers and their games
  • PG Party – come now, no PGC is complete without a little dancing and plenty of schmoozing
  • Bespoke meeting system – our dedicated Pitch & Match system for all registered delegates to use in order to connect during the conference
