Survey about the speakers:
I would also like to extend my thanks to all the other sponsors and volunteers who have helped make this event what it is. Thanks to Nir Miretzky and The Gamers.TV for taking the pictures and videos.
Roshumbo, Prime Sense, Funtactix, Afeka College, Flash&Flex user group, Newsgeek, Israeli Mobile Summit, Garage Geeks, IGDA and GameIS.
And to our volunteers: Oren De-Panther, Yotam Rosenfeld, and Yaron Katz who you probably met at the registration desk.
Bar-Zvi & Ben-Dov, who were the main sponsors of the event, have been getting inquiries from some of our participants regarding the legal aspects of gaming, incorporation of a company/partnership, and trademarks. They offered to meet – without any charge for the first meeting/consulting – with anyone who participated in the conference and has a legal question related to his product or company.
Another one of our sponsors has made the generous offer to help all attendees with their outreach to the media, which will hopefully result in greater awareness and sales of your games. GameNewswire (www.game-newswire.com) is a press release and asset distribution service for game developers and publishers interested in getting their news into the hands of influencers. With the number of influencers growing rapidly, access to the media, bloggers and opinion leaders has never been so important. GameNewswire directly offers access to up to 5,000 members of the community, as well as more than 60 million users through its reach with your news and information. Pricing is usually $500 per release distributed over the service, but each attendee who follows the Twitter feed @GameNewswire will receive one free distribution.
Terms and conditions: Limit one release per company that attended the 2011 Israeli Game Development Day. Releases must be forwarded at least 48 hours before the requested release time to firstname.lastname@example.org. GameNewswire may reject, edit or otherwise any the submitted release or information at its sole discretion. The company is not liable for errors, omissions or any other damages that could potentially result from using the service.
Corbomite Games in collaboration with the International Game Developers Association and GameIS are proud to announce the second Israeli Game Development Day in May 29th 2011.
