Inverge: the interactive convergence conference–happening on Sept. 4+5 in Portland, Oregon–is an interdisciplinary thought-leader event that focuses on the convergence of media platforms (transmedia/crossmedia), of virtual + physical, content + advertising, and corporate content + consumer-generated content.
Inverge brings presenters and attendees together from a variety of professions and disciplines to help make sense of the changes we are experiencing as a result of the digitization of media and the democratization of distribution. The big picture is revealed via the integration of disciplines at the event. The presentations are high-level, informative and conceptual, pointing the way toward the future and facilitating advanced professional development.
To create a unique experience for attendees, this conference is integrated with three other cultural events happening in Portland over the same multi-day period:
+ Time-Based Art Festival (performance : dance : music : new media : visual arts)
+ MusicFestNW (over 100 indie bands)
+ First Thursday Gallery Walk (an evening of art, wine and music)
Visit the conference site to see the complete list of confirmed thought-leader speakers.
