Event organizer The Game Initiative has announced the 2nd annual Casual Games Conference, to take place July 13-14, 2006, in Seattle, Washington, and a follow-up to this year's July conference in Seattle. This confirmation comes following Friday's announcement of Casuality Seattle: A Conference for Game Developers, Publishers and Distributors, which will be held in Seattle at the end of August 2006. Casuality Seattle, organized by the Casual Games Association industry body, is directly competing with The Game Initiative's show, and the decision to announce two casual game conferences in the same location and just 6 weeks apart will likely lead to significant competition for sponsors and attendees. According to The Game Initiative, the 2005 Casual Games Conference was attended by nearly 500 industry professionals responsible for many of today's top web, downloadable and mobile games, with executives coming from as far away as the United Kingdom, Norway, India, Korea, China and Australia. More information on this conference will be available at its official website in the near future. "We are extremely proud that the Casual Games Conference has increased the attention on, and the exposure of developers, publishers and distributors of casual games," said Christopher V. Sherman, executive director of the Game Initiative. "Working together with well respected industry leaders, the Game Initiative's Casual Games Conference will continue to promote the growth of the entire industry segment."
