The CMP Game Group announced today that it will be doubling the show floor space for the 2007 Game Developers Conference.
Following the neutering of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in July, the CMP Game Group, organizers of GDC, are taking the lead to provide "a single, one-stop shop event," by dramatically increasing their planned expo floor space for 2007. GDC, despite rapid growth and greater media attention, has historically been an insider's event where, "98% of 2005 attendees rated the information provided at the GDC relevant to their jobs." Whether this expansion is an indication of a change in focus for the conference reamains to be seen.
GDC will take place March 5-9, 2007 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.
