More than 2,800 delegates will gather at The Brewery for the two days on 20-21 January to hear from 300 of the world’s leading authorities from the gaming industry. Mobile, PC, blockchain and more will be covered, across 25 unmissable conference tracks. Across two full days, our speakers and panellists will share their expert insight into the influencer marketing scene, studio growth, design and development tips, company culture and loads more.
One Ticket, Three Conferences
Mobile is the most important area in gaming right now, and we’ve been championing it for years through our Pocket Gamer brand. But there’s more than mobile in 2020: our dedicated blockchain and PC games conferences are back too.
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, or creating new models for rewarding players. There are opportunities and incredible rewards on offer, but there’s no shortage of pitfalls to avoid and trends to follow.
Which is precisely why we introduced blockchain gaming to our conference series last year, to great success in places like San Francisco and Helsinki. The games and tech industries are changing for good. Discover more, and meet the people at the heart of it, at this dedicated conference from the makers of Pocket Gamer Connects – access to it is included in all PG Connects London tickets (and vice versa).
And returning for its third year in London is PC Connects. After a successful event in Seattle at the heart of the PC scene, PC Connects will be back in London with 50 speakers to educate and inspire with an agenda set to cover trends, marketing, publishing, development know-how, and strategies to thrive in this evolving sector. As with blockchain, this dedicated series is all included in the one ticket.
New Themes, Core Issues
As well as the evergreen topics like live ops and monetisation, you’ll find new conference tracks for 2020.
We’ll be looking at Visions & Values, for instance, getting to the heart of how we build the best possible games industry. We’ll cover eSports, hypercasual and instant messenger games, AI, influencer marketing, VR and AR, cross-platform gaming and streaming.
You can expect a mix of short, sharp talks and longer panels, as well as workshops, cast studies and more.
Networking For All
A PG Connects conference is a place to get business done. We’re famous for being a place where new connections are made (hence the name) and productive meetings take place. You’ll be able to network with some 2,800 industry professionals at this London event, and we do our best to make that easy.
We’ll bring together the whole gaming industry, from students and indie studios to the media, international investors and publishers. Unlike some other events, 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 Publisher 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. And we run similar Investor Connector sessions too, putting creators together with firms looking to invest in the next big thing.
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.
If you’re looking for feedback on a project, stop by our Journalist Bar for a free consultation from professional games journalists. Our editors can also be contacted through the Pitch & Match system.
All About The Indies
Indie devs are the lifeblood of the mobile and PC games industry and Connects London 2020 will champion 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 Big Indie Pitches 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, North America, 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 awesome Global Connects party – that’s where the networking goes on into the night and you might just make lifelong friends, fortunes and memories…
