CCP CEO to Deliver Keynote Address

CCP Games Chief Executive Officer Hilmar Petursson will be delivering a keynote address at Nordic Game 2007 in Malmo, Sweden on May 16th. The speech is titled "Tao of Virtual World Societies" and will discuss the balance between the developer's vision and the expectations of the player community.

Hilmar Petursson, Chief Executive Officer of CCP Games, will deliver a keynote address at Nordic Game 2007 entitled, "Tao of Virtual World Societies". The keynote will take place on Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at the Malmo Exhibition and Convention Center in Malmo, Sweden. The two-day conference represents Europe's largest games industry conference showcasing executives discussing how social elements (such as networking and collaboration) will play an increasingly important roll in modern gaming.

Petursson will discuss the importance of achieving a balance between the development team's vision and the community's desires, resulting in successful game design and game play. Petursson assumed his position as CEO in January of 2004 and has led the company's explosive growth in terms of size and influence. CCP Games most recently announced plans for a two-year 200 person global expansion of the company, reflecting the global uptake of massively multiplayer online games (MMOG), such as EVE Online, a leading sci-fi MMOG created by CCP.

Nordic Game is the event of the year for the entire Nordic games community; bringing together developers, publishers, distributors, researchers and retailers from the Nordic region and around the world - to meet, exchange ideas and get inspired by some of the world's most exciting industry leaders, as well as the latest games, products and innovations.
