Speaker Lineup Announced for the Fifth-Annual FGS Conference

Adobe Systems, Unity Technologies, Kongregate, More to Speak at 2013 FGS ("Flash Gaming Summit") Conference, Presented by Mochi Media

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Today, Mochi Media announced the speakers for the fifth-annual FGS conference ("FGS 5"), which will be held on March 24th, 2013 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. The conference will bring together leaders in the Flash gaming industry to share insights and strategies on successful game design, distribution and monetization, as their development efforts increasingly expand to mobile, social, MMO, 3D and console platforms. This year's premier sponsor is Adobe, and platinum sponsor is FGL.com.

FGS is an annual event where hundreds of industry members share insights about trends and strategies. Those leading this year's discussions include speakers from Adobe, Unity Technologies, Kongregate, Frima Studio, and Ninja Kiwi, alongside other industry executives and thought leaders.

This year's conference also marks the return of the "Mochis Award Show," which honors the best Flash games of 2012. 30 Finalists were chosen from more than 1,400 submissions for ten award categories that include "Best Action Game," "Most Creative Game," "Players Choice," and more. A complete list of finalists for the Mochis can be found on the FGS Awards Show page.

The results of the 2012 Flash Games Market Survey helped form the content of FGS 5. According to the survey, 86% of Flash game developers are either currently making or planning to make mobile games in the next year. The survey results also identified "marketing" as the biggest challenge for Flash game developers entering the mobile space. The survey findings, and the content of FGS 5, are reflected in the theme for this year's conference, "Evolve Your Game."

Confirmed speakers for FGS 5 include:

  • Thibault Imbert, Sr. Product Manager, Adobe Systems
  • Carl Callewaert, Product Evangelist, Unity Technologies
  • Josh Larson, CEO, Mochi Media, Inc.
  • John Cooney, Game Developer, Kongregate
