With highly competitive indie pitches and mighty networking through our free Pitch & Match meeting scheduler and the infamous Global Connects party night, no event puts you in touch with the whole gaming industry like PGC.

January 20th

15:50 - The track kicks off with our fabulous sponsor Polystream's CEO and co-founder Bruce Grove talking about the three steps to generate unimaginable scale for cloud gaming. He will discuss new advances in cloud technology, and how developers will eventually be able to have their own Fortnite moment once they can push past the current limitations.

16:10 - Next, Joseph Knowles, director of communications and developer relations at Hatch Entertainment, will be taking a step back to give us an overall view of where cloud gaming is currently at, and where it looks to be going in the future.

16:30 - Shifting gears a bit, GameClub co-founder and CEO Dan Sherman will be stopping by to discuss how the subscription model is disrupting mobile games, and how game "ownership" is becoming a thing of the past.

16:50 - For the final talk, independent consultant Mike Hines will be going over the differences between AWS, Google, and Azure, contemplating which of these cloud computing services you should use and why.

17:10 - Rounding out the track, there'll be a panel discussing how developers can deliver experiences that matter through streaming. Our own Matthew Forde will be hosting - he'll be joined by Hatch Entertainment head of customer service Pascal Debroek, Polystream CCO Marek Rubasinski, Lima Sky VP of business development Armin Hummel, Robot Cache SVP of business development Philippe Erwin, Antstream Games CEO Steve Cottam, and Mainframe Industries CEO and co-founder Thor Gunnarsson.
