The Massachusetts Tech Leadership Council is hosting a video game related event in Waltham on November 19th called “Video Game Gold: The Prosperous Gaming Industry in MA.” This will be a great opportunity for game developers to network with more traditional software developers. There will be, from what I understand, a brief presentation from Jon Radoff (who spoke at Post Mortem in September), and then a panel discussion. Registration is $40 for members, $80 for non-members.

There is a vibrant and growing video game industry in Massachusetts that consists of numerous development studios, game-related service and content providers, industry analysts and journalists and students, among others. In the thriving multi-billion dollar video game industry, Massachusetts has emerged as a key player and we’re just getting started!

Jon Radoff, game industry entrepreneur and CEO of GamerDNA.com, will share a high-level overview of current market trends in the game industry and provide a snapshot of the role of MA companies and executives. An interactive panel discussion amongst a mix of local executives entrenched in this industry will help demystify video games for the un-initiated in attendance, further examine the state of games in MA, including a showcase of innovative products and services from local companies, and to also to share their thoughts about what opportunities exist for the MA game industry in years to come.

Panelists:
Jon Radoff, CEO, GamerDNA (Moderator)
Peter Blacklow, CEO, Worldwinner
Brett Close, President & CEO, 38 Studios
Jim Crowley, CEO, Turbine
Florian Hunziker, VP Business Development, Harmonix
Oscar Jazdowski, Senior Relationship Manager, SVB
