GDC 2013: record attendance confirmed, date set for 2014


The 2013 Game Developers’ Conference was the biggest year in the event’s history, attracting a record 23,000 to the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Event organiser UBM also confirmed that GDC will return to the same venue next year, on March 17th-21st 2014. The call for submissions to speak at the event will open this summer.

“With the game development industry evolving at a faster clip than ever before, we find both the profile of the developer and the types of games represented at GDC also growing to include new and different people and interests,” said general manager of the Game Developers Conference Meggan Scavio. “The response we’ve gotten to this year’s event makes us feel confident that the changes we’ve made, such as the introduction of the Advocacy Track and the Free to Play Game Design and Business Summit, have helped evolved the conference to be even more inclusive.”
