Wargaming, IGG, Gamevil, NCsoft, IUGO join PG Connects Vancouver speakers

Aiming to deliver a not-to-be-missed mobile games conference

Wargaming, IGG, Gamevil, NCsoft, IUGO join PG Connects Vancouver speakers

The closer the target, the bigger the guns.

And the calibre doesn't get much larger than that delivered by our latest batch of Pocket Gamer Connects Vancouver speakers to join our June 28th-29th conference.

  • From IUGO, Skybound, and Scopely representatives locking their sights on The Walking Dead: Road to Survival licence to tell the tale of how the comic book was brought to mobile, or
  • Wargaming's David Bluhm keynoting our East Meets West track to talk brand before
  • Andrew Woodruff runs through the secrets of how IGG succeeds on a global level, to
  • NCsoft's Michael Chang contributing his thoughts on how to build and grow a studio on Vancouver, or
  • a Korea market masterclass from Gamevil's Kyu Lee…

expect a show agenda that packs more punch than an M60.

Of course, they are far from lone guns in this campaign.

We have a lot more firepower in our full speaker roster.
