Less than one week remains until Pocket Gamer Connects Digital, which takes place between April 6th and 10th.
For the first time ever, Pocket Gamer Connects is moving into the digital world, with Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #1. It's all the best bits of our conferences - insightful talks, brilliant panels, and all the usual fringe events - delivered directly into your home.
We're keeping it a little lighter this time around - it's only our first run at going digital, after all - but there's still seven tracks to take in, with topics including growth, monetisation, live ops, and development, alongside the return of our Big Screen Gaming track. And on top of all that, we're running out first ever digital Big Indie Pitch, Publisher Speedmatch, and Investor Connector events, with the usual business meetings too thanks to our meeting system.
Every day we will look at each of the seven tracks in turn. Today is The Growth Track, your chance to learn all about growing your game from some of the industry's finest minds.
9:00 - We will kick off the track with a talk by Sandra Schneider from ironSource. She will discuss six steps your competitors are taking to grow their games.
9:30 - Up next, Lion Studios' Eugen Quiring holds a session on making a hit game and the steps for success.
