In response to the explosion of casual, mobile and social media gaming markets geared towards children, Interactive Ontario have announced a brand new international event called INplay, to take place in downtown Toronto on May 18th and 19th, 2010.
INplay is designed as a forum for game developers/publishers, and other content producers (TV/film/toy/book/magazine/comic) in the kids industry.
Game developers/publishers listed on the Partners & Sponsors page include Capybara Games, Corus Entertainment (they have a sizable children gaming presence through their Teletoon and YTV brands), Astral Media (they have a 50% stake in Teletoon and also operate a games room on the Family website), and zinc Roe Design.
Aside from the date and city, information on the event is a little sparse at present. Interactive Ontario have stated on the event's FAQ page that the conference programme is currently being worked on in collaboration with the event partners.
Stay connected to NextGen Player for more updates on this event as we draw closer to the date.
