Adobe Sponsors several Community Events world-wide. Here is an interview with Shawn Pucknell from FITC Toronto!
Liz: What city is the event held and what so great about it?
Shawn: FITC Toronto started in 2002 and has continued to grow: this is our 9th year and we expect it to be an amazing event that will sell out. Toronto is a fantastic City...metropolitan and vibrant, but still safe and clean for the most part! People are friendly, and spring should be perfect weather.
Liz: What makes your event unique?
Shawn: It starts with the presentations. Two solidly packed days of presentations, both technical and creative. Presenters from around the world have been hand picked for their skill and talent, and all are eager to share and meet you. Most times, you will have 4 different presentations to choose from. It's also about the networking. Being able to meet and talk to people who share your passion for this industry. Meet them at the presentations, in the exhibitor hall, or at one of the evening parties. Did we mention the parties? We don't mean to toot our own horn, but FITC parties are legendary. Not that you should come just for the parties. But you could. If you really wanted to. We wouldn't tell anyone.
Liz: How much does it cost?
Shawn: FITC Toronto 2010 festival tickets are 499 CDN until Jan 15th, at which point they go up to $599 CDN. We pride ourselves on still being one of the lowest priced Flash conferences around.
Liz: Can you tell us about some of your speakers?
Shawn: Some of the most well respected people and companies in the industry:
Colin Moock, Jim Corbett , Brendan Dawes, Joa Ebert, North Kingdom, Lee Brimelow, Ralph Hauwert, Scott Hansen, Mario Klingemann, Big Spaceship, Firstborn, Andre Michelle, Stacey Mulcahy, James Paterson (presstube), Keith Peters, Grant Skinner, plus many more!
Liz: How can we follow the event?
