Thank you for joining PG Connects. In 2023, we will be live in The Brewery, London.  We will not be running a digital version of the event.

NOTE: The MeetToMatch meeting platform goes live approximately three weeks before the event, and you will be automatically added to it and notified by email at that point, as long as you have registered for a ticket.

What precautions are we taking for Covid?

Your safety and comfort are prime concerns for us and we’re putting multiple measures in place to ensure we’re in line with all regulations. We want you to feel at ease at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2022 and to concentrate on making connections, getting business done and enjoying the show.

So how does this work?

PG Connects is back with all the usual talks, panels, fringe events, parties, expo, meetings, and loads of games industry professionals to connect with. There’s tea and coffee all day, plus lunch is also provided and then after all the meetings are finished, we can all get together for a few sociable drinks at the infamous Global Connects Party!

Hang on. What is a webinar?

A webinar is an online seminar, a presentation broadcast live from anywhere in the world to your computer screen, via a video service.

PG Connects has two main sorts of video presentations: talks (presented by one individual, often with a slide deck you can follow) which last 20 minutes, and panels (a number of individuals discussing a hot topic) which last 40 minutes. These will be Live at the Brewery in London and broadcast over Zoom for our digital ticket holders.

The recordings will also be available for all ticket holders to view online about 48 hours after the session, and will remain viewable all week so you can catch up on any talks you may have missed.

How do I watch the talks and panels?

If you are at the event, you can attend the sessions Live and watch our talks and panels in the track rooms at the Brewery. You will also be able to ask questions and participate in the discussions on stage.



All talks will be broadcast via Zoom webinars and take place between about 8:30am and 6pm (UK time). We will email you to remind you of upcoming Zoom sessions, and to share the link with you. You will also be able to find links in the MeetToMatch platform. See the note above about scheduling.

The difference, of course, is that rather than being in a track room in London, Helsinki, or Seattle, you’ll be watching from your home, using the popular Zoom video conference chat tool. It even enables you to interact with the speakers

All the talks will be recorded with a video link posted to a private space for delegates within 48 hours. We’ll share the link with you so you can catch up later.

Please note: if the Zoom links are not opening for you, it’s because you have not logged into your Zoom account first. It’s important that you have access to Zoom and are logged in to your own account first – this is not a password from Pocket Gamer Connects, but your own Zoom account. Log in as yourself, and our links will open. There are more hints here.

How am I supposed to have meetings?

There are three types of meetings that can be arranged using the MeetToMatch platform and these are as follows:



Once a Live meeting is scheduled, a table number or meeting zone will be allocated inside the venue and you can then meet at the agreed time. Meeting zones are clearly marked and there will be maps available around the venue. These meetings must be held during venue opening hours 8:30 am – 6pm.


Digital to Digital

A digital to digital meeting will take place over your preferred meeting software at the agreed time. There are no time restrictions for these meetings and the meeting system is available all week long.


Digital to Live

A digital to Live meeting is also possible during times when the conference is in full swing and this will take place over your preferred meeting software at the agreed time. We will try to make some quiet space available at the venue to make this easier.

The meeting platform opens about three weeks before the conference and stays open for a short period afterwards. You will receive an email explaining how to get access when you have registered. When you log into MeetToMatch then, you will be able to establish a default video meeting service: the default is 8×8 but Zoom and Skype are also easy to set up. We have a full guide and FAQ here which should answer all your questions.

What about the fringe events?

No event would be complete without the traditional side events. We will be running a bunch of activities during the week including Big Indie Pitch (mobile and PC/console separately), Publisher SpeedMatch Investor Connector and the new MoneyMaker meetings. There are also Careers Week activities including Discord discussions and a jobs board.

These have their own sign-up processes and you need to apply and be eligible – see the links in the Event Activities menu above. If you’re involved in a fringe event you need to apply using the relevant form, and then wait to be contacted by the event manager with specific details for getting involved. If you’re unsure if you’ve registered contact [email protected] with the title ‘Fringe event question’.

All fringe events are taking place Live at the venue.
