Big Indie Zone Icon

The Big Indie Zone is an exclusive expo area within the conference dedicated to indie developers and their games.

It offers developers the chance to pre-book a 2-day demo table (including conference passes, making this an excellent value option) and present their awesome creation to fellow Connects delegates within a conducive setting.

The zone runs for the full duration of the 2 days and is always a vibrant and very popular segment of any Connects conference.

Whether you’re a publisher looking for new talent, an investor in search of your next focus, a service provider keen to share the benefits of your tools, or even a developer hoping to exchange ideas with your contemporaries, swinging by The Big Indie Zone comes highly recommended.

If you’re an indie developer looking to show your game, check out our exclusive indie developer competition where you could win tickets to attend the conference!

  • Attending PGC was a great opportunity for us when reaching out to get insight. We showcased our game at the indie zone and held an interactive competition with the people visiting our table and we felt like we got the verification that we needed to boost our confidence to continue working!
