BreakIT! - FITC Toronto Design & Technology Festival

FITCsite

April 19 - 22, 2008, Toronto Hilton, Toronto, Canada

Break your tools. Break your patterns. Break the norm. Break the standards.

Toronto, Canada [March 5, 2008] -- Having just concluded a sold-out event in Amsterdam, FITC returns to Toronto, Canada for FITC Toronto: The Design + Technology Festival. Scheduled for April 19 - 22, 2008 at the Toronto Hilton, FITC Toronto is the largest event of its kind in Canada and a highlight of the international conference circuit with over 1,000 attendees from more than 15 countries.

FITC Toronto is where the world's top designers and developers come together to share their insights and expertise across three subject areas: creative, technical and business. Sessions cover all aspects of the creative process, explore the latest developments in rich media technology, and provide insight into the ups and downs of running an Interactive business.

"The theme this year is about pushing the limits," says Shawn Pucknell, Founder and Executive Producer of FITC Toronto. "We want delegates to walk away from the festival with new ideas, new skills, new contacts, and a new sense of purpose about their work."

New to this year's program is the FITC "Get-A-Job" event, which takes place Saturday, April 19th at the Toronto Hilton. The Get-A-Job event is open to the general public (no festival pass required) and is organized to connect up-and-coming designers and developers with top Interactive agencies and technology companies. For more information, go to http://www.fitc.ca/getajob.

This is the 7th year for the three-day festival, which also includes a kick-ass Awards show, a speakers' series devoted to experimental art and programming, a large scale interactive art exhibit as well as some very cool parties.
