The Montreal International Game Summit, organized by Alliance numérique and Connection Events, is an annual conference crafted as an instrument to “meet the needs of the Quebec video game industry, which currently represents over 9,000 workers. It aims to develop expertise and knowledge transfer as well as to promote trade and business development among all of the industry stakeholders.” But MIGS has become a noteworthy pan-North American conference in Q4 of every year for the last decade.
MIGS has been formally announced today for Montreal in November 10-11, 2014. The Expo Zone, Business Lounge and Conference will be the tent stakes anchoring the autumnal event. Other special events and areas at MIGS, including the Battle of the Studios, the Career Fair, Central Café and Photo Booth, will be returning as part of the package deal.
For the experienced game industry veteran who wishes to share their industry sagacious insights, this is the important part for you:
Expect to see 80 speakers covering sixty talks and six tracks (Arts & VFX, Audio, Business & Management, Game Design, Production, and Technology). The doors are wide open to submit a speaking proposal for MIGS 2014 — at least until April 30th, 2014.
