Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki

Following the Helsinki Hub gathering, Pocket Gamer Connects will return to Finland for its sixth outing on October 1st and 2nd.

This is the country’s biggest B2B games conference as well as one of the biggest in the entire Nordic region. Over 1,300 international delegates and over 600 companies from 50 different countries are expected to attend.

For 2019 Pocket Gamer Connects has moved to a new venue. Our previous events at Wanha Satama and latterly the Scandic Congress Center were a huge success. So to give us even more space, we’re moving to the largest cultural centre in Finland The Cable Factory.
