Benefits for speakers include a free pass to the conferences and its numerous amenities, and access to the speaker and VIP lounges. Beyond the amenities, speakers benefit from long-lasting value and attention among their peers and the game community. "The level of exposure we received as speakers was fantastic," proclaimed Hermann Peterscheck, Producer at NetDevil. "The people in attendance are either serious about online game development or already significant players in the industry. We received many positive introductions and re-introductions as a direct result of speaking at the show."

"One of the most interesting and exciting jobs for the conference advisory board is reviewing the session proposals for LOGIN," stated Peter Freese, LOGIN 2009 Conference Director. "Each year, we receive more proposals than the last, and these proposals tend to be higher quality than the previous year's. That makes the competition for speaking much stiffer, but results in a continuous increase in the caliber of session content."

The LOGIN Conference is an annual game industry event created for the leading voices and minds of the online game industry from all corners of the globe. The conference is designed to encourage networking and to create unique business opportunities for all attendees.
