What's the Game Developers Conference?
The Game Developers Conference (GDC) is the world's largest professionals-only game industry event. GDC celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and serves as a testament of how far the industry has come and a celebration of its bright future.
GDC attracts over 18,000 attendees, and is the primary forum for programmers, artists, producers, game designers, audio professionals, business decision-makers and others involved in the development of interactive games to exchange ideas and shape the future of the industry. GDC is produced by the UBM TechWeb Game Network.
This market-defining conference features over 400 lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game development topics taught by leading industry experts. In addition, the GDC expo showcases all of the most relevant game development tools, platforms and services helping to drive the industry forward. The conference also features the twelfth annual Independent Games Festival, where new, unpublished games compete for the attention of the publishing community, and the tenth annual Game Developers Choice Awards, the premier accolades for peer-recognition in the digital games industry.
