21 04 2006

TIGA, the independent game developers association, has announced its annual seminar event taking place just before the E3 expo in May, designed to explore opportunities for UK developers in the American games industry.
The US Opportunities Seminar kicks off on Tuesday 9th May with a networking lunch at noon, followed by a series of presentations and discussions on the opportunities and obstacles of working within the US games market.
This year’s event will feature a keynote address from Diane Mermigas of The Hollywood Reporter, who will share some insights into Hollywood’s intentions and ambitions within the games industry, followed by two panels of speakers discussing opportunities in both the premium games market and the budget games sector.
Sony will be providing a presentation on the online market; with general sales figures, statistics and market trends provided by NPD. Additional speakers this year include Terry Thoren, CEO of Vibrant Animation, who will be offering his views on how Hollywood and the animation industry are targeting and aiming to enhance the interactivity of games on next-generation platforms.
Entry to the event is by registration only, and interested parties should visit theTIGA website for further information on attending this year’s seminar.
