Announcing the second annual Game Design Expo & Open House, featuring some of the leading minds in video game design and development, to be held in Vancouver, B.C. on January 19th and 20th, 2008, and hosted by Vancouver Film School.

Compared to last year’s sold-out event, Game Design Expo 2008 is bigger in every way, with two days of lectures and panels by the designers, producers, and CEOs behind some of the biggest games of yesterday and today. Speakers from top companies like Activision, BioWare, Eidos, EA, and Stormfront Studios are coming to present topics ranging from the Console Wars to Digital Acting & Interactive Narrative to Game Audio.
