We're now four weeks away from PG Connects' first appearance in Canada… and we're ready.

We've got our programme packed tighter than Dwayne Johnson's wrestling ring gear - we'll be announcing details of that very soon (the agenda, not Dwayne's spandex) - but there's still time to get through our last rounds of speaker announcements. 

So give it up for our latest reveals:

  • Brian Cooley, Cooley LLP
  • Josh Olin, Dream Team
  • Alex Manchado, Google
  • Mack Flavelle, Hammer & Tusk
  • Raj Patel, icejam Games
  • Ted Mui, MoEsport
  • Kristina Blanco, NetEase
  • Linn Sovig, Snow Cannon Games
  • Heini Vesander, Super Evil Megacorp
  • Jay Moore, The Alacrity Group
  • And more

You can find out more about what our speakers are talking about here. 

Here's what's going down

From indies and big dev studios, triple-A publishers, investors, and tool providers, to C-level execs, ad networks, monetisation experts, games media, PR reps, and more, Pocket Gamer Connects Vancouver on June 28th-29th will bring a true cross-section of the mobile games together as we roll into Canada this summer.

  • Indie Futures – get the lowdown on the strategies, tools, and techniques needed to thrive in today's mobile games market
