A much-loved part of the games industry calendar is set to return bigger than ever in 2019! That's right, Pocket Gamer Connects is back in Finland, the spiritual home of the mobile games industry, for the 6th time on October 1-2 – and it’s already shaping up to be the best yet.
Taking place in the days following the IGDA Leadership Day, Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2019 represents an unparalleled opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most creative and successful games developers on their home turf. It’ll be the country’s biggest B2B games conference, not to mention one of the biggest in the entire Nordic region with over 1,300 international delegates and over 600 companies from 50 different countries expected to attend. And since the show is even bigger and better this year, we’re moving to an awesome new venue with more space on offer at The Cable Factory.
Over 200 expert speakers will share their insight across multiple tracks on the very topics and trends that are pressing to all participants in the modern games industry, from raising funds and growing player bases to fine-tuning live ops, exploring new platforms and genres (such as esports, hyper-casual, live games and streaming services) working with influencers and maintaining a strong, fair company culture. The full range of speakers and the schedule will be revealed on the conference website over the summer months.
Ultimately though it’s all about making connections and getting business done and with that in mind we have a free dedicated meeting system for ALL delegates plus a plethora of focused side events to stimulate networking. There'll be the Big Indie Pitch, the curated Investor Connector session, and the famous Global Connects Party.
On top of that, there’s a packed expo to explore, a dedicated recruitment space if you’re looking to hire (or find your next job), plus a live game jam going on during the event.
This year we're also working in tandem with the IGDA which is running its Leadership Day on the Monday before Pocket Gamer Connects kicks off on Tuesday, Wednesday – adding even more value for visitors to Finland’s beautiful capital city. And of course that’s just for starters – we’ll be announcing more activities closer to the date!
