*Please note this article has been updated as of December 15, 2021 to reflect newly announced dates for Pocket Gamer Connects London 2022
After two years away because of the pandemic, Pocket Gamer Connects London is returning to the same popular venue we have frequented in the past. Some 1,500 attendees from the games industry will gather at The Brewery for two days on February 14-15 to network, discover, pitch and learn from more than 200 of the world’s leading authorities.
Mobile, PC and console, blockchain, VR/AR and more will be covered, across 16 unmissable conference tracks. Our speakers and panelists will share their expert insight into design and development, monetisation and growth, new technologies, company culture and loads more.
Back to networking
The most exciting thing for us is the chance to meet the industry in-person once again. We're using MeetToMatch as our meeting platform now, which will enable attendees to find each other and arrange meetings in our dedicated meeting areas.
A Pocket Gamer Connects conference is a place to get business done. It's famous for being a place where new connections are made (hence the name) and productive meetings take place. You'll be able to network with hundreds of industry professionals and we will do our best to make that easy.
We'll bring together the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and AAA publishers. Unlike some other events, we offer our MeetToMatch meeting scheduler free to all delegates, with unlimited requests, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.
An established international audience
More than 30,000 industry professionals have attended the Pocket Gamer Connects international conference series since 2014, whether that's online or at a venue. The roadshow has landed in the UK, America, Canada, Finland, Jordan, India and Hong Kong with a genuinely international client base: on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event. (When we took the event online during the pandemic, delegates from over 75 countries joined us!)
In 2016, we became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and have stayed on top ever since. Not only have our previous delegates voted Connects the 'best value conference', but 97% would recommend it to a colleague and 96% tell us they’ll come back for more.
Curated matchmaking events like our Publisher SpeedMatch, MoneyMaker and Investor Connector sessions pair developers in rapid succession with a series of publishers, investors and monetisation experts.
Our experts will hand-pick businesses who we know will find objectives in common. These short, sharp encounters enable first contact for you to follow up with a longer meeting if you find a potential partner. It’s a shop window for devs to display their wares and a pipeline of prospects for anyone looking to sign up-and-coming talent. Early application is advised as they fill up quickly and cannot be joined on the day.
Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile and PC games industry and Pocket Gamer Connects always champions their work. Our hugely popular Very Big Indie and PC Indie Pitches will be back in force with indie devs competing to impress a panel of expert judges. The winners walk away with armfuls of prizes and online marketing worth thousands of dollars.
And if that all sounds a bit serious, the first day will close with our awesome Global Connects Party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
Meet the media
We welcome regional and international specialist media to our events so that your work reaches the widest audience possible. With our own publishing powerhouse behind us, you are guaranteed that our journalists will be onsite for demos, interviews and other ways to raise awareness of your brand or project to the online community outside the walls of the event.
If you’re looking for feedback on a project, stop by our Journalist Bar for a free consultation from professional games journalists from sites including PocketGamer.com. Our editors can also be contacted through the MeetToMatch platform.
