MEET TO MATCH
For the first time, all summit attendees got exclusive access to PG Connects’ MeetToMatch platform. This platform shares the available meeting slots of everyone attending, allowing them to request meetings with other attendees and organise their calendars and requests, 2,048 meetings were conducted during the event.
Since time is money, MeetToMatch opened before the summit began so that everyone had the opportunity to manage and request meetings ahead of time. At the GameExpo Summit powered by PG Connects, we made networking quick, simple and easy.
THE VERY BIG INDIE PITCH!
Combining a speed-dating format with pitching ideas, The Very Big Indie Pitch gave developers 5 minutes to pitch their games to a panel of experts and answer any questions that occurred.
A golden opportunity for developers, they got to pitch any game in any format (mobile, PC, or console) to these experts and get their essential feedback face-to-face or post-event via email. Sharing ideas and getting instant evaluation and assessment is very fruitful and defines the developer’s course of action in the years that follow.
The Pavilion was a B2B exhibition taking place in the heart of the GameExpo Summit powered by PG Connects. It featured stands and booths from developers, B2B service providers, and even other countries and cities, allowing them to showcase their capabilities in the esports and gaming industry.

Networking is a cornerstone of business. That's why Publisher Speedmatch at the GameExpo Summit powered by PG Connects granted shortlisted publishers and developers an opportunity to make first contact with each other.
