Braben to keynote Montreal International Games Summit
Developer will discuss the future of the games industry and new business models
Alliance numérique, Quebec's digital industry network, has announced that David Braben will be delivering a keynote on the future of the games industry at the 2008 Montreal International Game Summit, taking place at the Palais des congrès over November 18 and 19.
Braben will analyse recent and upcoming technological trends and the implementation of new business models, as well as offer his predictions for sixth generation consoles.
"Following the outstanding success of last year's event, the Montreal International Game Summit has proven itself to be the most important East Coast industry experience for North America's video game industry," says Alain Lachapelle, director of MIGS.
"Alliance numérique is excited to head up this year's edition, which already is shaping up to be an ideal forum for exchange, learning and discovery among local and international game industry professionals."
Braben has gone on record a number of times on the subject of the Canadian government's tax incentives and funding for the games industry over recent years, warning the UK government that it needs to do more in order to avoid losing jobs to the region.
