Event Details

 Join Interactive Ontario as we bring i-ON, a one-day seminar focused on Interactive Digital Media, to your neighbourhood. Limited seating available.

i-ON was designed to be a province-wide event series bringing knowledge sharing, networking and economic development opportunities to companies in Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, the Niagara-St. Catharines region, and Ottawa. For our 2.0 series in Fall 2016, we are returning to the original areas, and expanding into two new ones – Sudbury and Kingston.

Plenary Session
Specialized Financing Models for the Digital Media Industry

Wondering how to access specialized financing for IDM? Find out how IDM production companies are combining funding options from the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), Export Development Canada (EDC) and the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).

To bring this fascinating ecosystem to life, Duncan Robinson of BDC, Johanna Franz of EDC and a representative from RBC will be sharing case studies for both early stage companies and more mature ones. Moderated by Andrew MacDowell of KPMG, this is a must-attend event for any IDM producer looking to grow their business; whether you’re still looking forward to revenue or already established with business deals inside and outside of Canada!

Breakout Session
A Community of Healthy Coopetition - How Companies of All Sizes Can Work Together

This session will examine the ways that interactive content companies, big and small, can work together as a community. Topics to cover include:

  • How do larger companies and broadcasters work with outside digital contractors and what can we learn from them?
  • Examples or partnerships small studios have made with digital agencies / film & TV properties / etc.,
  • How do you make a pitch to a larger company? Why should they hire you vs. keeping things in-house?
  • What are the funding options available to film & TV companies - particularly when they're working on digital components;
