Event description

Description

The short version:

  • We've been doing this for over a year and a half. This is our fifth event and our last one had over 950 participants
  • Discover and meet with hundreds of companies (developers, publishers, marketing firms, service providers) from your own home or office
  • NO TRAVEL! One of the reasons we do this, all the meetings happen via video call so no flights, no hotels
  • Book meetings around your schedule. The system is open for 24 hours a day, schedule meetings around your daily routine
  • It's cheap. All tickets are under $100 and there is no cost to listen to the lectures. Some of our attendees have had over 20 meetings in two days, $5 per meeting is a good deal in anyone's book

The long version: What is this?

The IndieGameBusiness Online Conference is the largest virtual matchmaking event in the game industry. We've been doing this for over a year and we're not new to this, our system works, really well!

The Powell Group, together with MeetToMatch, brings the world's best publishers, investors, marketing companies, and developers to your doorstep. You just need your laptop and a headset to get the process started!

Use MeetToMatch, the same industry leading matchmaking service you use at almost 20 international b2b game events, to find the best game companies in the industry. See what they are looking for and when they are available. Book your meeting, and when it's time to meet, click a button and go straight to a video call.

Meeting the best partners for your game doesn't get any easier than this.

Why?

Developers need to network with publishers, investors, PR companies, service providers, and influencers. We know this better than anyone. The problem is that the traditional game industry conferences and trade shows are prohibitively expensive. By the time you add up conference tickets, flights, hotels, meals, and Uber, a single person is looking at thousands of dollars for a two-day show.

We are solving this by reducing the barrier to entry and allowing you to network face to face from the comfort of your home or office. Allowing companies to connect for very little cost with the potential of huge ROI.

What Do I Get?

  • Access to publishers, developers, PR/marketing companies, service providers, and influencers.
  • Easy to use matchmaking system to find and schedule the best meetings for you.
  • Free video conferencing.
  • A complete directory of attendees to use after the event.
  • Absolutely no need to travel!
  • An affordable event to grow your company and meet new people.

What if I don't know anyone to meet with?

That's why we are doing this. Once you're signed up and the meeting system goes live you'll be able to see all the other participants, what they have to offer, and what they are looking for. You will be able to reach out to any of them and request a meeting. They can do the same for you.

What Do People Say?

“I love that I didn't have to scramble to find the right building/meeting room etc. and it gave everyone more time to actually talk, instead of worrying about where you needed to be next. I'm totally sold that this is the best way to conference!” - Ericka Evans - Head of Production, Phantom Compass

“I have been publishing games for many decades and have attended all the conferences and shows throughout. While those shows are great and are very needed for our industry, your online conference was a breath of fresh air. I know many small developers have a hard time getting to these conferences and even when they do its really hard to make meet the people you need to meet. Your conference gives them as well as publishers like me an opportunity to get 25-30 meetings done in 2 days. I look forward to more of these in the future and I thank you for your efforts.” - Jesse Sutton - CEO, Majesco Entertainment

"I've attended GDC year after year. Every time I attend, GDC is a noisy, busy, extremely expensive mess - but it's one of the only places I can go to get the business connections needed for my company. Now that I've been to an IGB event, I'm not sure I need to spend atrocious amounts of money to attend GDC any more." - Red Vonix - Founder, Cerulean Games

"The Indie Game Business Micro Conferences are a great platform to meet other peers of our industry without having to jet across the globe. Great matchmaking and a great host ensuring that all participants can make the most out of this event." - Jan Halwe - Senior Licensing Manager, Gamigo

"The Virtual Business Conference is an amazing opportunity for indies, like me, who can't afford to travel for business meetings. Times are changing and IGB's been ahead of the curve for a long time." - Danny Silvers - Game Designer, Lantana Games

"Really convenient, and just as productive as similar in-person events. Highly recommended!" - Jason Davey - Founder, Stray Basilisk


Who Will Be There?
