    Man, who’s going to give me six benjamins to go to the serious games summit?

    Seriously, what’s with that price tag? 🙂

    Yeah, I really don’t know. I mean, the last DC Summit was enjoyable, but the only reason I went was because my employer kindly picked up the tab. It’s not like the ham & cheese sandwiches for lunch made up for the $600 tab either.

    My guess? Exclusivity: the conference organizers are using that whopper cost to measure just how serious the attendees will be. No *Dance Dance Revolution* fans here.

  5. Matt K. says:

    It’s actually not out of line with other corporate/industry/tech conferences. Like flying first class, the assumption there is it’s always on someone else’s dime.

    Which is why academics don’t fly first class.

    Or think about “serious games”. 😉

  7. Jason says:

    It does make one wonder how skewed towards military/business the Summit’s emphasis will be, rather than education… which might increase the number of “sales pitch” presentations over earnest research presentations.

    But Matt – true enough – 600 clams is not out of range for the business/govt types.

    Why the flat fee? Maybe someone should petition them for a student/education rate?
