The E For All Expo organizers have announced that the October event will feature the CMP Game Group's Game Career Seminar, devised by the creators of Game Developers Conference (and also makers of Gamasutra/GameCareerGuide.com) - a two-day seminar that will educate those getting in and already part of the game business.
The overall E For All Expo will take place in downtown LA on October 18-21, 2007, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Day one of the Game Career Seminar, Friday, October 19, will focus on individuals looking to break into the business. Video game fans can learn what it takes to go from video game player to developer.
Day two, Saturday, October 20, will focus on career advancement for those already working in the video game industry. Top-level game developers will be on-hand to share their experience and expertise. Opportunities to network with top video game companies will be available.
“GDC’s Game Career Seminar adds a unique professional and skill development dynamic to E for All – now attendees can not only play games at E for All, they can learn how to make them, too,” said Mary Dolaher, CEO of IDG World Expo. “Whether you’re serious about getting into game development or have always wanted to know how it works, the GDC Game Career Seminar at E for All provides the tools, counseling and networking opportunities you need.”
