The one-day event will offer two tracks, one aimed at investors and one for game studio executives:

In the evening, conference attendees can preview technology and game demos (Demo Night) from companies currently looking to raise funds. It’s an opportunity to see the next Pocket God or FarmVille – before it becomes a multimillion property. Developers interested in participating in demo night are encouraged to register early due to space constraints.
