Conference returns for a seventh digital edition featuring the best of British

Join the global games industry at Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #7 on July 12-16

The next opportunity to learn from, and meet with, the global games industry will be online in July, thanks to the return of Pocket Gamer Connects. We’re delighted to announce that Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #7 will broadcast to the world on July 12th to 16th!

We had hoped to meet you in person, but the recent rise in new Covid variants has made the path to live events less clear. It’s a changing scenario so in collaboration with our partners, sponsors and friends we have taken the decision to go fully digital this summer.

It will be the seventh edition of our Digital conferences, and we know that those have been popular, so we hope you’ll join us again on Zoom, Discord and MeetToMatch for more of the same. Perhaps there’ll be a little British twist to give everybody a taster for our full return to live events next year.

In July, we plan to welcome over 1,500 industry professionals from across the world to explore the games market together, network with one another and learn from over 250 expert speakers on 20 conference tracks.

Tickets are on sale with Early Bird discounts, meaning you can save more than $420. Make sure you don’t miss out and book now!

A truly international conference

The very first Pocket Gamer Connects conference took place in London in 2014. Since then, we have run 27 events around the world, from Seattle to Hong Kong, with 2020 seeing our flagship series of events go online-only because of Covid-19. This July, Pocket Gamer Connects returns for a seventh edition, featuring a special 'best of British' track.

Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #7 being online-only presents a fantastic opportunity for games industry professionals from across the globe to explore the international games market and beyond without the need to travel. We know that representatives from almost 700 companies and some 75 countries join our Digital events - while nothing beats doing business over coffee or a beer, the chance to connect with such a wide audience using online tools has proved to be a boon during these difficult months.

Our team is working hard to put together an outstanding line-up for you, with over 115 sessions and more than 100 hours of content streamed live and recorded for on-demand viewing.

As networking is a key feature at our events, we’ll provide each attendee access to our meeting platform, enabling them to organise and conduct meetings over the internet. Attendees will also have access to our Discord server which helps connect industry professionals instantly, and enable viewers to meet with speakers after their sessions.

  • Investor Connector
  • Publisher SpeedMatch
  • Big Indie Pitch (Mobile Edition)
