The Vancouver Game Summit is coming

13 May

On Wednesday and Thursday (May 21st and 22nd) of next week the Vancouver International Game Summit will be going on here in town.

It looks to be a fantastic event with some heavy hitters from across the industry.

This year features dozens of speakers and panel members including Min Kim, Director of Game Operations, Nexon North America Inc; Tarrnie Williams, President, Relic; Eric Randal, President, Next Level Games; Kelly Zmak, President, Radical Entertainment and a keynote address from Jason Rubin, Founder, Naughty Dog. An old friend of ours John Meadows writer on the LOST game will also be on stage.

As is often the case at these things there are a couple of different tracks with congruent sessions so we will have two writers attend and bring back all the good stuff.

This is the third year running and it will be interesting to gauge how much of the attendance is generated by local industry and how many people come from out of town.

Regardless stay tuned as we’ll have more info coming soon.

    I heard about this.

    Tickets seem pricey but an interesting line up.

    Anybody know if it was any good last year?

    I went last year and its a great chance to meet some of the Local developers there and hear some good talks about Design, Management and Communication for Video Games. If you have a chance to go I would its like GDC for Vancouverites (just not as big)
