It’s very simple. Depending on the kind of casual games you’re speaking.
Casual games (CC Amsterdam)
All casual games you will find on the Popcap, Zylom portals. Most of the games are on royalty base and most of the games published on PC via DRM or monthly payments.
Development budget < €300k
After a success the game will be boxed for retail.
The ambience is very casual and not a big problem to speak to a CEO.
A casual game is a casual game in the eyes of the big 10 publishers (Atari, Ubi, EA, Nintendo etc..)
Most of games are cross platform (PC and Console) and publishers are well willing to pay upfront money.
Budget for game idea > €200k and < €800k
Most of the games will be boxed releases.
The ambience is business; organizations are big and are working with a layer system to the CEOs.

Question from a newbie ;) And first post here for me.
I am planning to head to one of the two upcoming game conferences, GDC08 or Casual Connect in Amsterdam.
I run a small studio primarily producing casual games and wanted to develop relationships with publishers and other producers.
Which conference would you recommend I go to? Won't be able to make both ;(
Thanks in advance for your advice.
