With two weeks to go until Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle commences on May 13th and runs to the 14th, we’re taking the opportunity to highlight the 10 tracks on offer at the event (plus there's also four tracks over on PC Connects).
In the build-up, we will be looking at one specific track daily to give you a better idea of what to expect.
Today we’re looking at the Monetiser track, which will be identifying the hottest trends in the marketing and monetisation landscape while capturing the latest data in mobile advertising, IAPS and ‘must knows’ in the industry.
