Final hours of PG Connects London 2017 Super Early Bird tickets, January 16th-17th

Don't miss Europe's biggest B2B mobile games event of the year

Final hours of PG Connects London 2017 Super Early Bird tickets, January 16th-17th

We know, we know: 2017 feels ages away, right?

By then we'll probably be commuting to work via unreliable teleportation kiosks and consuming our daily calorie intake from two quick squirts of aerosol in-between meetings.

If that sounds unappealing, here's something you can look forward to: we'll be kicking off the new year with Pocket Gamer Connects London (January 16th-17th).

London is our biggest conference of the PGC series - the largest B2B mobile games event in Europe, in fact - and the next edition will only get bigger, bolder, and better.

Expect more than 50 nationalities,140+ speakers, 500+ companies, 1,600+ delegates, 3,600+ meetings, countless networking opportunities, multiple fringe events, and even a whole new sister conference in the form of 'VR Connects' (more on this soon).

Let's get back to the present, though, because right now you can book your place at Super Early Bird ticket rates - that's up to 25% off the next price tier.

But you'll need to hurry up: we're into the final hours before the cost rises.

If it feels too early to commit, just imagine how prescient you'll look come January when you're detailing to your boss how much you've learned from PGC London (and reminding them of the money you saved the company) via your weekly haptic holographic Skype call...
