iVentures 2017

October 26 & 27, 2017 / MaRS Discovery District / Toronto



The 10th anniversary edition of Interactive Ontario’s flagship conference (formerly GameON: Ventures) marks an evolution for this two-day event. This year, iVentures will expand to act as a marketplace for ideas across all forms of interactive digital media (IDM), focused around three streams:

  • Ideas to Watch: innovation in technology, business models and content
  • Collaboration: partnerships between interactive digital media producers and other sectors, from healthcare to education
  • GameON: the business of video games

iVentures exists to connect business leaders in the interactive digital media (IDM) industries with each other and with business leaders in overlapping sectors. The goal of the iVentures marketplace is to facilitate inspiration, collaboration and partnerships that will create the next great IDM project.

This new focus will allow IO to continue its goal of facilitating business opportunities while highlighting the wide variety of everything that’s new and noteworthy in digital content. iVentures 2017 is set to shine light on this fast-moving and exciting industry.
