PGC-SF24-BigIndieZoneLogo3DThe 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 two 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.

Win Complimentary Indie Access!

This year, we’re running an exclusive competition where indie developers can enter a draw to win tickets to attend the conference. The indie tables are all full at this point. You can view a floorplan map here (opens in new tab).

To enter the draw, simply hit the button below and complete the form.

Alternatively, you can secure your expo space at PG Connects San Francisco 2024 by purchasing your table in the Big Indie Zone. Book your table today via our registration page here.



  1. Only indie developers are eligible: independent game studios with fewer than 10 people.
  2. Table availability is limited. Tables are allocated at random to eligible studios who have applied daily until all tables are gone. Once all the tables are allocated, it will no longer be possible to apply for a table (although we may still except applications for complimentary indie tickets at our discretion).
  3. “A table” includes one standard showcase table, two chairs, and two standard indie tickets to the conference with full MeetToMatch access.
  4. No guarantees are made about the position of the table. No other guarantees are made about resources, equipment, signposting or other event collateral. If selected, you must bring everything you need to showcase your game.
  5. Tables offered and not accepted by the cut off date or unoccupied from the start of the event without reason or prior agreement, will automatically be allocated to another eligible Indie developer on the waiting list.
  6. All tables are allocated at Steel Media’s absolute discretion.
  7. Occupation of the tables are subject to the PG Connects standard T&Cs for rules of entry.

  • I run a small indie studio that owes quite a lot of its professional contacts and presentational skills to its attendance to Pocket Gamer events. Thanks for the support!

  • 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!
