Calling all indie developers! Pitch your game to experts at Pocket Gamer Connect

Europe’s Number One Gaming Conference Comes Back to Toronto

The gaming industry is all abuzz as Europe’s number one gaming conference returns to Toronto for the second time. After the resounding success of PG Connects Toronto 2022, this year’s conference promises to be even bigger and better for the 750 attendees from around the world who will be joining the event on July 19th to 20th.

This two-day conference is jam-packed with networking opportunities, discovery, pitching, and learning from the 120 leading authorities in the gaming industry. With a diverse mix of fresh-faced indie designers, experienced CEOs, and investors, attendees can expect to draw a true cross-section of the industry.

The conference will cover a wide range of topics, highlighting hot AI trends, web3, android and iOS, PC and console, VR/AR, and more. It will feature multiple track rooms of expert speakers and panelists who will share their insights into design and development, monetization and growth, new technologies, and company culture.

Matchmaking and pitching competitions will also be held at the event, giving attendees more opportunities to take their business to the next level. For indie developers currently working on their games, there are several opportunities available at the conference. Some of these opportunities include the Big Indie Pitch events that provide expert feedback in real-time, a designated zone to showcase your creations to keyholders in the industry, and additional matchmaking events that are specifically geared towards helping indie developers find funding or a publisher.

The Big Indie Pitch at Toronto
One of the highlights of this year’s conference is the Big Indie Pitch event that offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress the best experts in the gaming industry. Developers can answer questions and gather expert insight on their game in a unique speed dating format that gives each developer five minutes with each panel of judges.

The event provides real feedback to entrants, and the winners are covered across Steel Media’s network of websites, such as Pocket Gamer and PC Games Insider, giving developers the opportunity to get their game up in the limelight. The deadline for entries is July 7th, so developers are encouraged to submit their games today.

Big Indie Zone
The Big Indie Zone is an exclusive expo area within the conference that showcases indie developers and their latest creations. It’s the perfect place for developers to pre-book a two-day demo table, present their game to fellow Connects delegates, and gain valuable feedback. This area is open for the entire duration of the two-day conference and is a vibrant and popular segment that offers something for everyone.

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 a developer hoping to exchange ideas with your contemporaries, the Big Indie Zone offers something for everyone. Developers can book their tables on the official conference website under the “Indie expo table” option at checkout. Keep in mind that this ticket option is only available for indie game/app developers.

The Big Indie Zone Audience Choice Award, sponsored by ByteBrew
We also have an exclusive award sponsored by ByteBrew, the Big Indie Zone Audience Choice Award. This award will be given to the indie developer with the best game, and it will be voted by all PG Connects attendees in the Big Indie Zone. The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony on the second day of the conference. This award offers a new level of recognition to talented indie developers who have dedicated their time and effort to create something extraordinary within the industry.
