Networking for all
As with all our international conferences, the schedule will be packed with our trademark short, sharp seminars. Our 120 speakers get straight down to business - which is what you’ll be able to do too afterwards, networking with some 750 industry professionals.
The event is called Connects because that’s what we help you do; connect with the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and publishers. We offer our MeetToMatch meeting platform free and unlimited to all delegates, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person. We opened our meeting platform early for conference attendees to make the most of their conference experience before the conference officially kicks off, so the sooner you register, the sooner you can start booking meetings!
No other event puts you in touch with the entire mobile gaming ecosystem like our Connects conferences.
Fringe activities to help meet your perfect business partner
Our Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector sessions pair developers in rapid succession with a series of publishers and investors in a series of speed-dating style meetings. 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.
If you're a small team with a project ready to share, you can also join our Very Big Indie Pitch sessions as well. You'll get instant feedback on your game from experts, and compete for prizes and editorial coverage.
Canada is home to an incredibly gifted talent pool of indie game developers, and Pocket Gamer is dedicated to championing their work by showcasing their projects to our international audience. The show floor will have a dedicated Big Indie Zone for known names and newcomers alike to display their talent to an industry audience. This is a vibrant and varied expo area for publishers looking to sign promising titles.
Keep the networking going after hours
Don't worry that it will all be too serious. Day one closes with our free Global Connects party! That’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…

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!)
BONUS: What you can look forward to at the Brands x Ads x Games Summit
To summarise our Brands x Ads x Games, we’ll be demystifying the key developments, celebrating the great work already being done and showcasing the tremendous potential both now (with mobile and PC/console platforms) but also in the future as blockchain, XR and the metaverse gaming worlds grow.
The games industry is already THE biggest media landscape in the world with game playing and game adjacent content (e.g. Streamers, tips, wider games media) dominating the entertainment consumption of billions (including those hard to reach youth demographics) and in pure $ terms, already outweighing the music, film and TV industries combined (with a valuation of $200 - 350 billion depending on your chosen metrics!). It’s prime time to elevate the aspects of your marketing that can get you an even bigger slice of the pie.
This summit is designed to provide an introduction to various parts of the gaming landscape (from mobile and M&A to esports and blockchain games), highlight the specific opportunities for brands and advertising agencies, stimulate face-to-face connection with actual game developers, publishers and other companies and encourage opportunities for all involved.
