General Information about

The Event: Amsterdam, 19 november 2013

Welcome to the official website for the inaugural Control Conference: a day celebrating game development.

The brand new one-day conference brought to you by the people from Control Magazine.

The Pro Sessions offer a clear focus: development. No talks on business, marketing, and management — this one’s about code, art and game design.

The Indigo Classes (by Dutch Game Garden) will offer a broad and varied selection of sessions geared towards students.

Our goal is to provide attendees with in-depth talks that will boost their skills and inspire their work. To host an event where they can meet, talk and share with their peers. In short: an event that feels like their own: by developers, for developers.

For the best venue imaginable, we choose Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam.

Quick Overview
Control Conference offers several different experiences (prices ex. VAT):

1. Pro Sessions (all access: price €95): SOLD OUT!

For professionals Control Magazine hosts the Pro Sessions, the most in-depth talks, divided over three tracks: code, art and game design.

2. Indigo Classes (for students, €25): SOLD OUT!

Students are invited to join the Indigo Classes. To deliver the best show possible, we hooked up with the great people of Dutch Game Garden, who will be bringing their famous Indigo Classes to the conference.

And for the best conclusion of the day, Control Magazine and Improvive will host the fifth Control Industry Dinner, home of the annual Dutch Game Awards (tickets and sponsorships sold separately).
