Where will you find us this year? Join the Steel Media 2020 world tour ONLINE!

Editor's note: this story about 2020 plans has not aged well, given the global COVID-19 crisis. But we are still connecting with the global games industry through online events. To see which partner events have migrated online, please check out our events listings. We're running Pocket Gamer Connects Digital events throughout the year too - full conferences with 200+ speakers and business meeting tools.

The new year is barely underway and we’ve already hosted our biggest event ever in the form of Pocket Gamer Connects London. This month, we brought together nearly 2,500 games industry professionals from more than 60 countries and helped them connect with over 9,000 meetings arranged through our free online scheduler alone.

And we’re just getting started...

Last year, we connected nearly 14,000 attendees through our events and millions via our online media - and this year is going to be even bigger!

We have so much more lined up for 2020, with over 50 events planned all around the world, from North America to Russia, Germany to China and more. As well as our flagship Connects series of international events touching down in Seattle, Hong Kong, Helsinki and Jordan, our hotly contested Big Indie Pitch competitions are also globetrotting again, with Pocket Gamer parties and mixers rounding out the mix too.

Want to know where you can connect with the global games industry in 2020? Take a look at the list below...
