Europe’s biggest B2B mobile games industry event, Pocket Gamer Connects, returns once more to London on January 21st to 22nd 2019. And this time it’s bringing back-up with two sister events; PC Connects and Blockchain Gamer Connects. No matter which show you book for, your ticket will get you into all three expos. This isn’t doubling down - it’s more like trebling down!
So what can the 2,500 delegates expect to find when they set foot in The Brewery for the two-day event? Well, those three shows will be spread across three floors at the venue, each with its own dedicated expo space and seminar halls.
21 Conference tracks
Speaking of seminar halls, that’s where you’ll find the 21 conference tracks, offering an unprecedented amount of insight and expertise for all games industry professionals.
- Pocket Gamer Connects presents an amazing 12 conference tracks, covering everything from growth and monetisation to influencers and AI.
- PC Connects adds a further 5 tracks including what it takes to make a game and how to bring it to market, as well as looking to the future of PC digital game development.
- Hot from its outings in San Francisco and Helsinki in 2018, Blockchain Gamer Connects makes its UK debut in 2019 with 4 tracks from the blockchain basics to the hottest trends.
We’ll reveal more details about the conference tracks in the next few days…
The showfloor has a dedicated Indie showcase area for known names and newcomers alike to display their talent to an industry audience. The Big Indie Zone is entirely dedicated to the work of indie teams and lone developers and it’s a vibrant and varied expo area for publishers looking to sign promising titles.
It’s also a great chance for indies to see what the competition is working on, catch up with old friends or make new contacts.
No other event puts you in touch with the entire mobile games industry like Pocket Gamer Connects - and now you can add PC, VR and AR, and blockchain professionals to your business network. From students and the next generation of talent to international big hitters and industry veterans, you’ll find them all at the show.
With 2,500 industry professionals attending, whether you use our online meeting scheduler that’s available free to all delegates or dive into our Speedmatch rapid fire networking sessions, we make it easy to make the contacts you’re looking for.
There will be more chances than ever to meet investors at Pocket Gamer Connects in 2019. Not only are we bringing back Investor Matchmaking in new and improved form, but we’re also hosting the next round of the Blockchain Roadshow Pitching Sessions.
Entrants will have just minutes to dazzle a panel of active investors in the hope of winning thousands of dollars for the best pitch of the day - and securing the investment they need to bring their work to market.
The best people any business can seek advice from is a proven success that has been there, done that - and want to pass on their hard-won learnings. The mentor cafe gives you the chance to get one-on-one time with just that calibre of industry veteran and ask the burning questions that keep you awake at night.
Bring on the wall!
Making its first appearance on UK soil, the Career Wall is exactly as it sounds. It’s a simple idea that has proven immensely popular at our overseas events, connecting companies looking for new hires with the talent attending the show.
Meet The Media
We welcome the specialist and mainstream media to our shows, giving you the chance to raise awareness for your project outside of these four walls.
The editorial teams from all of our websites will be on hand, with the opportunity to get professional feedback in person on your work in progress from our games journos at the Journalist Bar.
Big Indie Pitches
London sees the very first of our series of international Big Indie Pitch competitions for 2019. With dedicated pitches for both mobile and PC, entrants will try to impress a panel of expert judges for their share of a prize pool worth thousands.
Global Connects Party
You won’t want to miss the knees-up on the night of the first day of the show - these shindigs have become legendary! Free to all delegates, it’s a great night whether you want to focus on after-hours networking or cut loose on the dancefloor.
Mobile Games Awards
And if one party night just isn’t enough for you, then you won’t want to miss the Mobile Games Awards 2019 gala ceremony the following night, on 22nd January. It’s a glamorous affair, even if we do say so ourselves. Nominations are now open until 22nd October, or you can reserve your place by registering here.
