LOGIN Sets the Conference Agenda for Online Game Industry Professionals

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEATTLE, Washington, March 30, 2009 - Evergreen Events has posted the official schedule for the 2009 LOGIN Conference. From registration check-in to the opening reception on Monday, May 11th, through the sessions, lectures, roundtables and keynotes that draw to a close on Thursday, May 14th, attendees and potential attendees can now review the entire schedule for one of the most influential online game industry events in 2009. The low early-bird registration rate of $595 will end on Tuesday, March 31st; an all-access LOGIN registration will give attendees access to all sessions, event receptions, networking breaks, sumptuous keynote lunches, and energizing speed networking breakfasts.

Over 85 speakers and over 60 sessions are packed into three full days of high-level networking, information-sharing and relaxation with fellow colleagues at the 2009 LOGIN Conference. LOGIN will be held May 11th-14th 2009 in Seattle, Washington at the fantastic Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel, and as an event will continue to facilitate the education, high-powered networking, and entertainment for the leaders of the business and development sides of the online game industry.

"We're extremely proud of what we've crafted in this year's agenda for LOGIN attendees. In our schedule, you'll find innovation the online game industry needs to move forward, such as a focus on green technology, social gaming, venture funding, and more. Beyond keeping the content fresh, we aren't relying on last year's format to carry us into this year. In 2009, we're introducing the debate format to give attendees the opportunity to hear two sides about an important topic in a way neither a lecture nor a panel can make possible," said Cynthia Freese, Executive Director of the LOGIN Game Conference. "Of course, we've kept what works for LOGIN, like our popular welcome reception, official conference party, deliciously memorable keynote lunches, and snack breaks."
