March 19th – 3rd edition of Game Nation Canadian Reception

March 19th @ Jillian’s San Francisco – 5 to 8:30 pm

Since 2012, the Canadian Interactive Alliance took over from the Government of Canada, as the lead organizer of the Game Nation Reception. This event, in addition to other activities held at the Intercontinental Canadian Business Lounge, is an integrated part of Canada’s video game industry companies and stakeholders’ efforts to network beyond the 2014 GDC and Game Connection America to take place in San Francisco, March 17-21.

CIAIC relies on partnerships to build on long standing tradition and to position Canada as the best place in the world to make video games, in line with two main objectives:

  • To facilitate great networking with international VIPs including publishers, investors and studio heads; and
  • To give Canadian game developers a chance to celebrate their great accomplishments.

Thanks to our partners, the Game Nation Canada 2013 Reception was a spectacular success with over 700 attendees from across Canada and around the world.

CIAIC is gearing up to make this 3rd edition the biggest and best yet, with your support! As a Canadian major industry player, we look forward to welcoming you and rely on your support and presence to make this year reception a success.

The formal invitation requests are now closed.
