PG Connects celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2024

Join us and share your own PG Stories from a decade of games industry connections.

We’re no stranger to lauding momentous games industry milestones whether that’s at Pocket Gamer Connects events or on our online media sites – but it’s doubly nice to be able to raise a glass to one of our own as we look ahead to the 10th anniversary of our live PG Connects conferences.

PG Connects, more than a conference

On 20th January 2014 the first ever PG Connects opened its doors to the games industry at Vinopolis London. After several years of serving up drinks via parties, pitches and mobile mixers and sharing news on PocketGamer.Biz, the Steel Media team took the plunge to impart even more knowledge, facilitate business connections and generally play an even more active role in supporting the incredible games industry with a fully fledged conference.

Our mission then was simply to bring together a cross-section of the games industry, to champion the best and brightest, support the upcomers and innovators and generally help the business grow. Initially the focus was squarely upon mobile, but in later years the vision became more holistic with specific tracks and then whole side events focused on other formats and new technologies such as PC, Console, VR/XR, Blockchain/Web3 and the Metaverse.

Whilst it’s not down to us to judge the success of our endeavours, the fact that the event is still going strong, and in fact stronger than ever, hopefully tells its own story.

PG Connects has always been about the people first. The awesome individuals who make the games, who craft the essential tools and services, who do the deals that make the games industry the biggest and best entertainment media in the world. It’s about the people who travel the world to engage with our events and help create that special ‘games industry family’ vibe that has become the hallmark of our events.

If you’re reading this then the chances are high that you’re one of those people! And if so, we want to hear from you, with PGC Stories we’ll be celebrating your happy memories, tall tales and the life-changing deals from Pocket Gamer Connects gone by.
