Canucks Converge on Casual Connect

posted in News By: | Print This Post Print This Post

CanadaCanada – Seattle in July means it’s time for Casual Connect, hosted by the Casual Games Association. This is the first year that I will be able to attend the event, and it looks like I’m going to be in some very good company. While some of us are venturing down to take part in the Leadership Development Forum being held the day before the actual conference, many others will be looking to make business connections and display their products to the thousands of attendees. It is through the assistance of the Consulate General of Canada in Seattle and the Department of Foreign Affairs & International Trade that many of the Canadian companies are able to attend the show, and I know that they will be taking full advantage of the opportunity. I know that I am looking forward to meeting many of the people I have until now only known through email and press releases.

When I asked our Consulate representative for a list of the Canadian companies who were confirmed through his office to be attending, I had no idea that the number would be so high. I had planned on doing a nice blurb about each company, but for the sake of brevity and time consumption, I have opted to list each participating company or individual with a link to their respective sites.

Including those of us who are representing Women In Games Vancouver at Casual Connect, there will be approximately 80 companies, associations and independents from this side of the 49th meeting in Seattle. There may be other Canadian companies who are also attending the expo and I will be more than happy to add them to the list if notified. Those noted in italics are also participating in the Leadership Development Forum on Monday July 20.
