Introducing iVentures

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Interactive Ontario’s flagship conference, previously known as GameON: Ventures. We are excited to celebrate this important milestone by expanding and evolving the conference – this year, GameON is just one stream of a three stream event (alongside Ideas to Watch and Collaboration) that will examine the business of interactive digital media in all forms. Video games, eLearning, augmented and virtual reality, AI and more – you’ll find it at the re-branded iVentures. The schedule and sessions are still to come, but topics you can expect to see will include:

  • Inclusive Design
  • When does kids entertainment become kids elearning?
  • IDM and Healthcare Collaborations
  • Ideas to Watch in Asia and Latin America
  • and many more

Last year featured a number of new additions to the conference, including our Expo area and improved networking through our Table Topics and Collaboration Hub, which will return in 2017. You can also once again expect industry leaders on stage (who didn’t love John Romero’s keynote speech last year?), thought-provoking panels and hands-on workshops. Watch this space for updates and stay tuned for details on how to apply for the Expo, as well as our Content and Technology showcases.
