Themed event

Publishing is a core part of the games industry - but it is not a simple matter. While games are flourishing, especially in the current global situation, it's up to developers and publishers to turn games concepts into businesses. At Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #2, we wanted to focus on the art of publishing, and we will be hosting a multitude of seminars, panels and roundtable discussions spread across each track, enabling developers to learn how to work with publishers, what platforms to target, and the overall world of game creation and game selling.

Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week

To support jobseekers during the COVID-19 crisis and to fill in some of the recruitment gaps, we'll launch the first ever Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week during our second digital conference. You can expect to see:

  • Digital jobs board listing on the main event channel
  • A mail-out of key vacancies to all attendees
  • A virtual jobs fair (match-making event where we connect job seekers with recruiters)
  • Focused talks, panels and round-table discussions regarding recruitment
  • Supporting editorial coverage on PocketGamer.biz

As part of this initiative, we are making a number of jobseeker tickets available free to people currently out of work and looking for a new role. This will not only give you access to the specific recruitment opportunities but also all other aspects of the Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #2 event we’ve listed above, and about to mention below…

And because we know that indie developers have been hardest hit by the current global situation, we have reserved a selection of free tickets for small studios. If you think you qualify, please apply now.

Around the clock networking, around the world

As one of 1,000+ virtual attendees, you will have around-the-clock access to our all-new online meeting platform. We’ve adopted the MeetToMatch meeting platform, a much trusted networking service you know from other industry events such as devcom, Nordic Game, GIC, Quo Vadis and more. This system promises not only greater functionality, but also more reliability so you can get your meeting organised and conducted with no hiccups along the way.

Sitting alongside the meeting system, we'll host several fringe events that bring together specific groups with specific needs.
