Reboot Communications Refactors Vancouver Game Conventions

Reboot Communications has been hosting events  Vancouver International Games Summit  and Game Developer’s Conference since 2007, but this year, they have cancelled plans to hold more events in Vancouver. In two weeks they will be organizing the Canadian Video Game awards at Fan Expo Vancouver. Apparently they were offering free admission to unemployed game developers to boost their attendance numbers.

I can’t believe that events like this are having trouble when even small events like the Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo was breaking fire codes. Pro Conventions are great, but when you have that kind of energy coming from the fan community, is there no way you can harness that?

    For the record. The Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo did NOT break fire codes. As well, the Vancouver Gaming Expo (modern themed) is coming November 10/11th 2012. http://www.vancouvergamingexpo.com

      Sorry about that. I must try to come up with a better convention parlance for “has many asses in the seats” 🙂
