GREE, Get Set Games, Electronic Arts and IGDA are latest PG Connects Vancouver 2016 speakers

Last-minute fumble? Hardly. We're surer than a Gareth Bale free kick.

But, like most Euro 2016 teams, we keep pushing right to the final whistle. Which is why although we're only a touch over a week away from Pocket Gamer Connects Vancouver on June 28th-29th we have a fresh team of speakers to add to our already star-studded squad.

The latest minds to step onto the PGC pitch are (in random draw order):

  • Shanti Bergel, GREE
  • Kate Edwards, IGDA
  • Nancy Mott, Vancouver Economic Commission
  • Rob Segal, Get Set Games
  • Lance Priebe, Hyper Hippo Games
  • Eric Jordan, Codename Entertainment
  • Steve Robert, Spin Master
  • Dan Box, Electronic Arts
  • John Kimmel, RevlQ
  • Lance Davis, BC Interactive Task Force
  • Eric Sterner, Meta

And if you've not checked the full fixture list yet, the show agenda is online.
