[UPDATE: January 2019 appointments now fully booked, sorry! It may still be possible for us to see your game – please come along to the Pocket Gamer Journalist Bar between 2pm and 5pm, on either 21 or 22 January, where we will be accepting walk-up meetings if journalists are available. Alternatively, delegates can request meetings through the Pitch & Match system – or track us down at the actual bar after hours.]
If you're a game-maker yourself - and we know many of our readers are - there are a thousand reasons to come to Pocket Gamer Connects in London in January 2019.
The networking, the workshops, the panels and talks, the parties. But if you're a developer working on a game, surely one of the most valuable benefits of being at Europe's leading mobile games conference is the chance to meet the press. That's us!
"Chance"? Why yes, there is usually an element of chance involved. It can be hard to pin a journalist down, even at a venue like PGC. There'll be 2,500 industry professionals there on January 21nd and 22nd. It'll be our biggest ever professional get-together. So our expert writers, editors and reviewers will be extremely busy.
Show us your games
Fear not. We've taken some of the randomness out of it with our Journalist Bar. This fantastic concept was pioneered last year and went down a treat, so we're rolling it out again.
It's not a bar in the booze sense; think "Apple Genius Bar". It's a place to rock up and meet a member of the media. The mornings will be by appointment only, the afternoons will be for walk-ins.
[BOOKING FORM NOW CLOSED]
To avoid disappointment, please make an appointment. Then we can ensure there's a member of our lovely Pocket Gamer team there waiting for you at that time. We want to see new games, and you've got new games to show, so let's schedule it.
If you're unable to make an appointment for the Monday or Tuesday mornings, the Journalist Bar will be open in the afternoons for people to come and say hi. Please note that it will get busy so meetings are limited to 15 minutes. We can't promise any specific coverage following a meeting, but it's a great way to get your project on our radar.Please note: you also need to be registered for PG Connects, an appointment is not a ticket to enter the conference and does not guarantee entry. Appointments are first come, first served so if you visit that link and there are no available slots... sorry. There will be some walk-in time at the show, with Pocket Gamer staff available on our stand as much as possible. Come by and say hi, you never know, we might have a moment to play your game. If you’re feeling especially confident, you might want to have a bash at formally showing your game to the Big Indie Pitch judges. Hey, you might even be able to contact a member of the press via the event's Pitch&Match system. But that's limited too, and if you can't schedule something, you may just have to try and collar us another time.
