What is Pocket Gamer Connects?

Like all activities under the Steel Media banner, Pocket Gamer Connects – and its partner conferences Beyond Games, Big Screen Gaming and Blockchain Gamer LIVE! – are wholly inclusive events. They provide value to a wide range of industry players, from global corporations looking to hone their strategy through to indie developers seeking a little inspiration and new contacts.

The Connects series tackles the industry from two angles. On the macro scale, we look at global game publishing strategies and opportunities with a focus on the most interesting markets and hottest topics (including global regulation and brand marketing).

On the more micro level, our indie survival talks look at the process of game making, covering everything from creativity through production to sustainability and how you can match the games you want to make with proven business models – and establish the formula for the next billion-dollar game!

Well over 48,000 delegates from every corner of the games industry have attended our Connects series in London, Helsinki, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Toronto, Hong Kong, Jordan and Bangalore since its debut in 2014.

  • The team at Steel Media are awesome! Giving developers a chance to pitch their games to press and publishers at these events in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere is worth its weight in gold and I recommend that any developers that haven’t done it before sign up asap for one of their events!
