If you haven’t heard, PG Connects is returning to the spiritual home of mobile gaming, Helsinki, in 2023 for our biggest event in the city yet. After the massive success of our 2022 show in Helsinki, we are returning to the city at an all-new, bigger venue. The show will be taking place at Wanha Satama, and this is going to be a show you absolutely won't want to miss. We’re welcoming over 1,600 game industry professionals from all around the globe to Helsinki for two days full of networking opportunities and game-changing insights from our 200 brilliant speakers. Filling 15 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from monetisation models and new markets, to industry trends and predictions and the most current information on artificial intelligence, the metaverse, web3 and much more.

4. Pitch your game to experts
Get real-time feedback on your indie game, press coverage and the opportunity to win awesome prizes. The Very Big Indie Pitch (split into Mobile and PC + Console editions) takes place within Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2023. This unique speed dating format gives each developer five minutes (including Q&A) with each panel of experts, meaning all entrants will get feedback in real-time and post-event via email too. Think speed-dating for developers and experts, and you get the idea. You can learn more about the events and sign up below:

5. Dedicated indie expo area
Showcase your work or discover the next breakout hit at our dedicated zone for indies. The Big Indie Zone is an exclusive expo area within the conference dedicated to indie developers and their games. All attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the best indie game at the event as The Big Indie Zone Audience Choice Award sponsored by ByteBrew makes a welcome return.

It offers developers the chance to pre-book a 2-day demo table (including conference passes, making this an excellent value option) and present their awesome creation to fellow Connects delegates within a conducive setting.

We are also running an exclusive competition where indie developers can enter a draw and potentially win a free expo table and tickets to attend the conference. You can enter the competition here!

6. Connect with old industry friends and meet new faces!
