Pocket Gamer Connects – THE Global Mobile Games Industry Conference
Pocket Gamer Connects – THE Global Mobile Games Industry Conference
INCORPORATING BLOCKCHAIN GAMER CONNECTS!
Leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, makes its exciting Hong Kong debut in 2019 – bringing our hugely successful event series to a thrilling new location. More than 1,000 delegates will gather in this vibrant destination to hear from 125 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile gaming industry. Filling 16 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from live ops to monetisation to the latest development trends.
One Ticket, Two Conferences
An exciting addition to the Hong Kong event is our shiny new dedicated blockchain games event. Blockchain technology has the potential to truly revolutionise the games industry, whether through the creation of a whole new category of Dapps, enabling secondary markets for in-game digital assets, creating new models for rewarding players, or the 101 other uses that are currently being conceived.
There are incredible opportunities and big rewards on offer, but there’s no shortage of issues to navigate, pitfalls to avoid, and trends to stay abreast of in these very early days. Which is precisely why we’re bringing Blockchain Gamer Connects to Hong Kong, hot from previous editions in London, Helsinki and San Francisco. Access is included in all PG Connects Hong Kong tickets (and vice versa).
The games industry is about to change for good. Get ahead of the game with our new dedicated conference.
New conference tracks for 2019 keep our audience at the cutting edge of the industry, including live ops, hypercasual & instant messenger games, UA, eSports, influencer marketing and blockchain gaming, as well as company culture and hands-on advice for developers in the form of our Developer Toolkit sessions. Of course, the seminar schedule still includes classic topics such as market overviews, industry trends, indie development, and case studies.
Networking For All
As ever, the conference schedule will be packed with our trademark short, sharp seminars. With no time to waffle, our speakers get straight down to business – which is what you’ll be able to do too, networking with some 1,000 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. Unlike other event organisers, we offer our Pitch & Match meeting scheduler free to all delegates, so you can find that perfect contact and arrange to meet them in person.
No other event puts you in touch with the entire mobile gaming industry like our Connects conferences.
Pairing Developers With Publishers And Investors
Our SpeedMatch 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.
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 industry 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.
All About The Indies
Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile games industry and Pocket Gamer Connects champions their work to our international audience. The show floor has 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.
And of course, our hugely popular Very Big Indie Pitch 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.
Established International Audience
More than 18,000 industry professionals have attended the Connects international conference series since 2014. Since then, the roadshow has landed in the UK, US, Canada, Finland, and India with a genuinely international client base; on average, delegates from more than 45 countries attend each event.
In 2016, we became the biggest dedicated mobile games industry conference series in Europe and have stayed on top ever since. Every event has been bigger and better than the last – and London continues to storm ahead year-on-year.
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.
Previous speakers and delegates from all the key industry players include Supercell, King, Space Ape Games, Niantic, SYBO, Tencent, Telltale, Apple, Rovio, Disney, Wargaming, Kabam, NetEase, NTT Docomo, Ubisoft, Facebook, Google, Square Enix, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Sega, Capcom, Unity, Twitter, Snapchat, Twitch and many, many, many more.
And if that all sounds a bit serious, Day 1 closes with our infamous Global Connects party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
