PGC London, part of the Pocket Gamer Connects conference series, is the biggest dedicated show in the western mobile games industry, with over 1,500 attendees from across the mobile games ecosystem and featuring everyone from indie developers to CEOs of top multinational publishers, as well as platforms, tool makers, investors, media, and more.

We believe the education sector and student developers are a key component of this ecosystem and want to engage both students and educators in our event.

Benefits for students include:

  • Learn from experts in the sector
  • Get a vital snapshot of the different aspects of industry (international publishing, monetisation, future technology, funding, and much more)
  • Make industry connections for future career options
  • Showcase work to leading media and potential publishers

 

We are keen to support the next generation of game developers and have tailored four ways that students, colleges, and universities can get involved with PG Connects:

1. £50 2-day student ticket

A highly subsidised ticket which includes access to all talks and expo plus networking activity (evening party, meeting system [limited], etc). This can be booked directly here.

2. FREE Day 2 passes

3. Big Indie Pitch

If any of your students are working on mobile or VR games or ideas for mobile or VR games they can enter them into the Very Big Indie Pitch and VR Indie Pitch competitions.
