Elevate your brand and discover the HUGE opportunities in the games space.

Brands x Ads x Games is a brand-new summit designed to focus upon the latest trends in the games industry and the spaces where games meet brands and advertising. We’ll be demystifying the key developments, celebrating the great work already being done and showcasing the tremendous potential both now (with mobile and PC/console platforms) but also in the future as blockchain, XR and the metaverse gaming worlds grow.

This summit is designed to provide an introduction to various parts of the gaming landscape (from mobile and M&A to esports and blockchain games), highlight the specific opportunities for brands and advertising agencies, stimulate face-to-face connection with actual game developers, publishers and other companies and encourage opportunities for all involved.

Taking place alongside our established PG Connects Toronto conference, you will also have the opportunity to connect with the established games industry as 750+ professionals gather and network via our bespoke meeting system, expo area and networking fringe events.

N.B. Attending the summit comes with full access to the rest of the Pocket Gamer Connects conference featuring hundreds more speakers to learn from and delegates to connect with.


Expert talks, seminars and panels over both days!
