Around the clock networking

As one of the expected 1,000+ virtual attendees, you will have access to our improved online meeting system for all five days of the conference, enabling you to search for the best contacts, connect with them and organise meetings at times that suit you.

Connecting with publishers and investors

Our ever-popular fringe events will also be returning to the digital realm during the week commencing June 8. Our Publisher SpeedMatch sessions pair developers, speed-dating style, with publishers. It’s a great opportunity to have first contact meetings with new prospects.

And for those seeking investment, you can find that online with the Investor Connector. Like the Publisher SpeedMatch, this curated event selects applicants for one-on-one meetings with investors and VCs looking to spend the right kind of money in the right sector. For developers looking for funding, apply here. For investors looking to get involved, fill out this form.

These events aren’t designed to close a deal, but they are wonderful opportunities to have a first contact meeting with publishers and investors to discuss your involvement with one another.

Big Indie Pitch

Celebrating new indie games without leaving the office! Our world-renowned indie pitching series, the Big Indie Pitch, joins the lineup for Pocket Gamer Connects Digital once again, enabling indie developers from all around the world the chance to pitch their games to a panel of industry experts for instant feedback and the possibility of winning editorial coverage worth thousands.

We are running two separate Big Indie Pitches for mobile developers, and PC & console developers.
