The mobile games industry has been growing fast much thanks to the booming smartphone market. Already, games represent the majority of the app store revenue across the platforms, and the industry is expected to grow from $50 billion in 2016 all the way up to $105 billion in 2021 as reported by the UK Interactive Entertainment. With nearly 1500 active mobile games companies in the UK alone, there is clearly an audience for a conference such as the Pocket Gamer Connects.
