About the Events
Conferences are geared more toward industry professionals and generally closed to the public. They may have expo halls, but the bulk of the event consists of speakers, meeting rooms, roundtables and other discussion platforms.
Summits are similar to conferences but tend to be shorter and/or more focused on a specific theme, such as phones, massively multiplayer online games, online media, marketing, etc. Summits often are closed to the public but may be more open to those wanting to attend if they can gain permission.
Conventions are expo-hall focused with a variety of products that have at least some substance in the gaming industry. There may be conference-type content, but this is generally light. They are usually not open to the public but have a strong media presence that tends to draw public interest.
Fan Events can have expo floors like conventions but are often focused on a wider range of themes. They are much more receptive to the public and often focus on a specific game or company.
Other Events are those events that do not quite fit into any of the other categories. Some of these events may not have a direct relationship with the game industry but support it in other ways. For example, Computex focuses on computer hardware for gamers.
