Pocket Gamer Announces PG Connects Digital (April 6-10)
A new virtual conference for the games industry, from the makers of Pocket Gamer Connects! Talks, meetings and pitch events, accessible to all…
Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #1
The Global Games Industry Conference ONLINE!
Monday, April 6 – Friday, April 10, 2020
Distilling the spirit of Pocket Gamer Connects and its Big Screen Gaming partner conferences – in digital form.
Networking is an essential part of the games business, there are usually industry events happening somewhere in the world literally every week – heck, we run a good number of them! However, right now, not everything is quite as ‘usual’. Whilst many smaller and mid-range events are going ahead as normal (and Pocket Gamer Connects in Seattle, Hong Kong, Helsinki and Jordan are very much included), some of the bigger events like Taiwan Games Show, MWC and GDC have been cancelled or postponed, and many people are unable to travel quite as freely. Suffice to say, this creates a problem.
In our continuing mission to serve the games industry, we’ve come up with what we believe is an answer (at least temporarily) in the form of Pocket Gamer Connects Digital. Sitting alongside our live events, April 6th sees the launch of our first completely digital event. It could be the first of many, it could be the one and only, to be honest, we don’t know yet – this is very much an attempt to do something to help the industry and to continue our ongoing mission to connect people.
What we do know is that we’re going to work incredibly hard to distil as much of the content and spirit as we can from the traditional Pocket Gamer Connects events you have come to know and love over the last seven years. That means expert talks and panels delivered by 64 top-notch speakers, a brand new and massively improved digital meeting system (with built-in audio/video conferencing), digital versions of Big Indie Pitches and fringe events like Publisher SpeedMatch and Investor Connector, and maybe more surprises too. All carried out to fit around your schedule and from the comfort of your office computer, wherever you are in the world.
