The fifth annual Ottawa International Game Conference is taking place April 24-26, 2016.
The OIGC is a great educational and networking event for the game development community. It also provides an opportunity for the rest of the creative community to learn about the game industry, one of the key drivers of content creation and interactive storytelling moving forward.
After meeting game developers during the past conferences, a general sense was, not surprisingly, that people want to know how to get their game ideas funded. The “Show me the Money” session occurring on Monday, April 25, 2016 at OIGC 2016 will do just that.
The session is structured as a workshop with a focus on audience engagement. Bring your stories of funding success and failure, and everyone will leave with practical takeaways about how to fund your concept, while making fewer mistakes and losing less money along the way.
The OIGC “Show me the Money” session will be held at the Mercury Lounge, 56 Byward Market Square, Ottawa (in the Market) on Monday, April 25, 2016, from 12:15 PM to 1:00 PM.
Join more than 500 game development and design professionals participating in this and other workshops, speaker sessions and the OIGC’s first ever public event: OIGC Open House. For more information on the OIGC, please visithttp://oigconf.com
