"You also never know who you will bump into"

"When I found out there was an event that brings game developers together, I just had to attend. I have been lucky enough to be on a panel, remote and in person, a few times, sharing my knowledge and insights with attendees," says Chris Peters

"It is so refreshing to have this platform to share and learn together and wonderful to meet and connect with others in the industry. You never know who you will bump into."

"Critical to our evolution"

Also sharing their story is WINGS Interactive's Corina Diaz who tells us about her experience appearing at the show.

"In 2022, I joined PocketGamer Connects as a speaker to talk about diversity funding initiatives and their importance to the games industry. I met so many talented and ambitious developers at this talk, in particular some from marginalised groups who were actively seeking this type of funding.

"Making those connections and creating viable paths for these creators to bring their projects to market is critical to our evolution as an entertainment industry."
