Over the past few years, the online gaming conferences put together by Evergreen Events
have been rather significant ones in the industry. Evergreen Events are the people who organized the ION Game Conference
which we covered extensively last year, and the Online Game Development Conference in 2007. As we announced previously, ION has been renamed as LOGIN
for 2009 and they're already announcing some of the conference's speakers
Among the many speakers slated for LOGIN
this May are David Ryan Hunt, Senior Game Designer at Flying Lab Software
, and Craig Alexander, Turbine
's VP of Product Development. Alexander's session will be "Building Online Games for the Console Generation: Challenges and Opportunities"
which could certainly prove to be interesting. We'll keep an eye on how the conference is shaping up as we get closer to the four-day event kicking off on May 11th.
