SEATTLE, Washington – August 29, 2006 – Evergreen Events proudly announces the inaugural 2007 Online Game Development Conference (OGDC). The OGDC will be held on May 10-11, 2007 at Washington state's only AAA 5 Diamond hotel, the elegant Fairmont Olympic in downtown Seattle. The Online Game Development Conference is slated to be the foremost source of high-quality technical and creative information for the interactive game development community.
According to Michael Cai, Director of Broadband & Gaming for Parks Associates, "The online gaming market, which includes MMO gaming, in-game item exchange, web-based online gaming services, game advertising, online console gaming, and digital distribution, is going to quadruple in size in the North American market, from $1.1 billion in 2005 to $4.4 billion by 2010. It's imperative for game developers to have a handle on trends in the industry, as it explodes in size and diversity."
With this accelerating growth, new challenges and opportunities emerge for the developer. The Online Game Development Conference is designed to offer a wide array of fresh, future-oriented answers to the many challenges and opportunities facing online game developers. The maxim of the OGDC is "Connect Your Brain"; at this conference, like no other, developers will connect with each other and the information they need.
Peter Freese, Conference Chairperson for the Online Game Development Conference states, "I've been in the massively multiplayer online games industry for seven years, and I've always felt that the creators behind these game titles haven't had a forum where they can exchange real, hardcore ideas that are most important to what they do within our industry."
