Speakers Announced For The 2013 LA Games Conference!

Monday 15th April 2013 by Derek Kraneveldt

The annual LA Games Conference is right around the corner (it’s THIS week to be exact), and both the conference’s agenda and featured speakers have now been revealed. Some of the many highlights (for me anyways) include thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen, Activision’s Jonathan Anastas, and Ubisoft’s Chris Early.

The conference takes place this Thursday and Friday (April 18th and 19th), and will feature 11 panels, 3 keynotes, 3 roundtables discussions, and 3 featured presentations, as well as countless exhibits and demos. This year’s conference sounds absolutely huge, and is definitely one you won’t want to miss if you find yourself in the Los Angeles area this weekend.

Check out the full list of speakers (and an interview from last week’s conference) below, and let us know if you’re planning to attend! Tickets are available here, and using the code SRADIUS will get you 10% off!
