Win One of 10 Indie-Only Expo Tables At XR Connects Helsinki

The final round of the 2017 Connects series of international events is fast approaching – and we’re rounding out the year by rocking up in frosty Finland with XR Connects Helsinki on the 19th and 20th September. That far North of the equator, we’re aiming to deliver a cooler-than-cool two-day cross-section of the VR, AR and MR industry, featuring some of the leading names and biggest companiesin the sector. 


VR Indie Pitch

But it isn’t all about the big boys (or girls!) at XR Connects – we’re right behind indie devs everywhere, which is why we help to promote their work through things like our VR Indie Pitch at all of our events. Last year in Helsinki, it was won by Nemesis Perspective from NemPers, now known as Evocat Games. It could be you this year if you can keep your cool under the judges’ scrutiny – register your game here to find out. 


Sub-Zero Competition

Another way we’re helping out Helsinki indies out this year is with this sub-zero competition where you could win one of 10 tables on the show floor for you to chill out and demo your work to an international audience of industry professionals that will include developers, publishers, investors and the media – all looking for great XR projects. Your table would be in the ‘I ♥ Indie Showcase’, an exclusive expo area within the conference dedicated to indie developers and their games.

As if that wasn’t enough, the prize also includes two full passes to both days of the event, which will feature 50 of the world’s leading XR speakers sharing their insights, experiences and advice directly with you.

Oh, and winners also get free entry to our always-incredible Global Connects party; it’s a great opportunity to hang with the cool kids and make new contacts as you down a cold one – or a few!
