  • 780 lectures, panels, tutorials and roundtable discussions were held in 2019.

Industry Relevance

GDC has been running since the infancy of the gaming industry in the United States of America with a modest first edition in 1988, but has since then grown into one of the defining events within professional gaming circles. The conference and expo combo is organised on an annual basis in March and frequently changes location. Now it’s based in San Francisco, California at Moscone Center. The full breadth of game development is encapsulated in the Game Developers Conference from computers and consoles through tablets and mobile devices to finally the new frontier – AR and VR. GDC offers visitors one of the best programs ever. GDC Mentoring, GDC Play, VR Play, GDC Pitch and the Summit Sessions are some of the many highlights!

Who Are You Going to Meet?

What makes GDC stand out and earn the respect of the gaming industry? In two words – prestige brands! Amazon, Epic, Google, Intel, Nvidia, Oculus, Sony, Microsoft, Hello Games and Unity are among the exhibitors who present their products at the expo portion. It’s no wonder that there are close to 30,000 visitors who come to the Game Developers Conference. They, in turn, represent all professional backgrounds within the gaming industry. There are developers, engineers, visual artists, distributors, programmers, producers, game designers, sound engineers, publishers, virtual and augmented reality creators, engineers and composers, career seekers and recruiters. We also can’t forget about the fans who come to learn and enjoy themselves in part thanks to additions like the Gardens, where visitors can relax and play games, and the GDC Film Festival!
