Connecting with the entire industry
Networking is a huge feature at every Pocket Gamer Connects event, and that rings true even now. Each attendee will have access to the MeetToMatch platform, enabling them to meet with industry peers from all across the globe and organise meetings to set up potential business deals. And to connect with industry colleagues immediately, each attendee will also have access to the Discord server.
To support the industry during these tough times where companies have had to make difficult decisions with layoffs, we’re bringing back the Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week. This event features a digital jobs board listing on the main event channel, a mail-out of key vacancies to all attendees, a daily ‘recruitment’ hour in the Discord channel, focused recruitment talks and roundtables, and supporting editorial coverage. Jobseekers currently out of work can sign up free for the Careers Week and get access to not only the careers event, but the entirety of Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #4.
Running as a partner event to the Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week, we’re thrilled to welcome Games Jobs Live as part of the week’s activities. Games Jobs Live is a live-streamed recruitment event designed specifically for the games industry, which showcases the best local game development studios as they present who they are, what they’ve done, and what positions they’re looking to fill. The event is free to sign up, so make sure you don’t miss out and register now!
You’ll also find a whole host of fringe events, such as the Publisher SpeedMatch which pairs developers and publishers together in a series of speed dating type style meetings. Or if you're a developer seeking funding for your game or project, the Investor Connector offers one-on-one meetings for games business and individuals with active investors.
Track down the Pocket Gamer journalists at the Journalist Bar every day at 2pm-3pm (GMT) and get instant feedback on your hard-worked games.
We’re pleased to welcome back our friends at IGDA Finland to Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #4 with the IGDA Mentor Café, where industry leaders share their knowledge in short, 15 minute mentoring sessions. After these sessions have finished, participants and experts can mingle in a relaxed environment for more conversations.
