Halifax Pop Explosion has introduced the HPX Digital Conference, a major three day event for digital and interactive creators and related disciplines from Eastern Canada, the United States, and beyond. Hosted at the Atlantica Hotel, the conference is held on October 17-19, 2012 during the Halifax Pop Explosion.
“Like the ‘90s Pop Explosion for which our festival is named, the same level of youthful
excitement and opportunity is taking place right now with digital creators” says Executive Director Jonny Stevens. “HPX Digital is for those geniuses building mobile apps, developing games, designing for the web, starting up their companies, and building opportunity. Growing up in Lunenburg in the ‘80s, I never would have thought there would be two game developers based there, employing people, and contributing to the cultural and economic fabric of small town Nova Scotia, yet here we are.”
The conference will feature speakers in areas including gaming, mobile, web, startups, design, and marketing, and will showcase the things happening within the technology sector in Nova Scotia and beyond. Attendees have the opportunity to take in business networking opportunities, social events, and the musical performances that Halifax Pop Explosion is known for worldwide.
Confirmed keynote speakers Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the popular social news website Reddit, and Amber Mac, social strategist, technology host, and journalist, will kick-off the conference. Additional speakers will be announced in the coming months.
