Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast SVP of digital strategy and licensing Eugene Evans will be heading to Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco next month to discuss getting the best out of IP in games.

The event takes place on March 18th to 19th and features all the usual PGC goodness: a track full of insightful sessions, roundtables where industry professionals can air their views on hot topics, networking opportunities (like Publisher SpeedMatch, Investor Connector and more), the Journalist Bar, the Very Big Indie Pitch and much more.

Evans will host a session entitled: ‘Expanding Brands Through Mobile: 3 Things to Know When Licensing for a Mobile App’.
