BigIndieZone-logo-600xThe 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.

  • PG Connects was a great experience! I had a booth in the Big Indie Zone and really enjoyed the feedback and exposure. The whole PGC team was great and helpful.

  • 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!
