Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there’s an increasing number of online mobile game conferences you can take part in.
Despite not being able to meet with people in person, virtual conferences have their unique benefits. The main one is surely the opportunity to take part in global conferences without having to get on a plane and leave home.
Furthermore, digital mobile game conferences tend to be more budget-friendly than in-person events – some are even free!
The networking opportunities are the same as with physical events, the only difference is meeting people virtually.
Put simply, it’s worth attending virtual mobile game conferences.
Here are the best ones!
