No More GI Live Events

December 21st, 2007 · No Comments · Personal

Transposed from Gaiiden’s Scroll

The Live Events program at the Game Institute has been suspended as of the end of this month. I’ll be posting an official statement on the GI Announcement forums later tonight for anyone interested (check tomorrow). The gist of the matter is attendance. We’re just not seeing enough interest from people to attend these lectures. An average of 4-6 people isn’t a great showing, and we don’t yet have the resources to properly market the program as we’re focused so much on finalizing our curriculum next year. It’s unfortunate, because literally ~99% of attendees to these events have been extremely satisfied (we gather survey results from each seminar) with the content and experience. I’d love to continue to give them that but the fact that we’re paying the speakers and not charging attendees has tipped the scales in regards to diminishing returns.

So Live Events will return. When I can’t say, because we don’t know. Second half of next year? Possibly. 2009? More likely. Either way they’ll be back. So if you missed out on these awesome events don’t worry because you’ll have another chance.
