IDM Expo Open to the Public for Free for the First Time

 

We have exciting news! For the first time ever iVentures is making our two day Interactive Digital Media Expo portion of the conference open to the public – for free!

Come out on either November 6th or 7th for your chance to discover cutting-edge interactive products from Canadian and International companies, including video games, virtual and augmented reality, eLearning applications, and more. You can also learn about funding, financial support and investment opportunities. Plus, we’ll have a very special table this year – a selection of our speakers will demo their work on rotation throughout the conference.

This is perfect for students, hobbyists, and those whose schedules make attending the full conference difficult, as this is a great opportunity for you to see what technologies and content are at the forefront of this exciting industry in a hands-on and interactive way!

The Expo will take place in the Exhibition Hall at the Design Exchange. Get your free ticket here.

Please register to ensure your spot. You can show up on the day but space isn’t guaranteed.
