The leading mobile gaming industry conference, Pocket Gamer Connects, venue - Wanha Satama, Helsinki in 2023 - bigger and better than ever.
More than 1,700 delegates will gather for two days to hear from 200 of the world’s leading authorities from the mobile gaming industry. Filling 15 wall-to-wall conference tracks across both days, they will share their expert insight on everything from monetisation and the latest development trends to blockchain and exploring the metaverse.
