FITC Toronto: The Design + Technology Festival

FITC 2009FITC Toronto 2009 celebrates what it means to live, think and play outside the lines with a three-day event focused on the art and craft of Interactive design and technology, April 25 - 28, 2009, at the Toronto Hilton Hotel in Toronto Canada. Now in its 8th year, FITC Toronto is one of the largest and longest running events for the design and technology community.

"FITC Toronto 2009 is a celebration of doing things differently," said Shawn Pucknell, Founder and Executive Producer of FITC. "This year, it's all about thinking outside the box, or more specifically outside the lines, as we look for ways to meet today's creative and business challenges."

FITC Toronto includes two full days of presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions preceded by a full day of workshops. The entire program is topped-off by the FITC Awards on Monday, April 27, 2009, an annual awards show which honors the best and brightest in the world of Interactive and new media design.

Insights and expertise from respected presenters and senior-level attendees are shared across three subject areas: creative, technical and business. This year's speakers include: David Carson, Joshua Davis, Joshua Hirsch, and MK12. See page end for full bios.

Returning for a second year, the popular Get-A-Job event takes place Saturday, April 25th at the Toronto Hilton. The Get-A-Job event is open to the general public (no festival pass required) and was created to connect up-and-coming designers and developers with top Interactive agencies and technology companies. For more information, go to http://www.getajobevent.com.

In an effort to include more female participation, FITC has put aside 100 free tickets to FITC Toronto specifically for women working in the industry -- whether designers, developers, or account managers. A video submission is required to qualify for the ticket. Full details can be found at http://www.fitc.ca/female/.

FITC has held 17 events over seven years in nine cities and four countries with over 10,000 attendees. The festival began as a Flash conference but has since expanded to included technologies such as Flex, AIR and Processing.
