GOLDSBORO, N.C. (August 16, 2016) – Since its inception in 2006, the Carolina Games Summit has been the premiere gathering spot for the North Carolina video game community, with over 2,000 people attending each year. The last Summit featured approximately 22 speakers and 17 sessions. The 2017 Carolina Games Summit will take place on February 4th and 5th in downtown Goldsboro, NC. Major events will be held on the first three floors of the historic Wayne National Building, as well as the Terrace Room at Waynesborough House, and the Paramount Theater. Events will span multiple downtown dining, arts, and entertainment establishments.
In preparation for the 2017 Summit, we are accepting proposals for conducting sessions. Presenting a session at the Carolina Games Summit provides rewarding exposure both professionally and personally. This is an opportunity to share ideas and practices with some of the brightest talents in game design and some of the biggest fans of video games. We look forward to an exciting lineup of speakers at the 2017 Carolina Games Summit!
The unifying aspect of the Carolina Games Summit is its dedication to informing the public that simulation and game design is a viable career choice for today’s youth. Our proposal process is informal and easy—just a web form at carolinagamessummit.com/speak. Proposals should include a one or two paragraph description of the topic and a brief outline of key points. New presenters at the Carolina Games Summit will also need to send biographical information and a portrait photo. Sessions are normally 45 minutes in length. Conference speakers receive entry to the event, access to our catered hospitality room, and a free booth for their company.
