Final hours of Mid-Term rate for Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2017

Fourth time in Finland, bigger & bolder than ever

Final hours of Mid-Term rate for Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2017

Our final conference of the year will play out, as it has for the past three years, in our beloved Helsinki on September 19th to 20th.

We've put together our broadest agenda to deliver the most hours of content via the highest number of speakers yet, set up the largest volume of fringe activity, added two sister conferences, and are on course to host the biggest crowd at the now-familiar Wanha Satama venue.

If you're a developer, a publisher, a platform holder, an investor, a service provider, a consultant, a distributor, a journalist, or in any way related to this sector, you should be there.

The rest of the industry will be.

And, right now, you've still got a few hours of the Mid-Term rate left. It ends at midnight (Finland time) in fact, so act sharpish to get the best deal.

Here's a quick rundown:

  • 10 gorgeous tracks – from Influencers to eSports to monetisation to development knowhow to global markets to local Finnish success stories to commercial nous to business practice to… you get the gist
  • Pitch & Match – Free business matching meeting system for all attendees
