2009 Game Developers Conference

Hot Topic: This year's Game Developers Conference (GDC09) is almost here! Sadly, I don't have the time off nor the money to attend this year but would definitely like to go next year! This year's conference will be held March 23-27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Check out the GDC website linked above for more information. If you are going, you might want to use the online schedule builder to make sure you have an awesome, jam-packed week. Also check out Grant Shonkwiler's tips to make sure you're ready and don't get burned out!

Are you going to GDC? I know it's highly acclaimed for the educational presentations and great networking opportunities and would be interested in the impressions of anyone who has previously attended.

Also, are there any similar conferences closer to those of us living on the eastern-US border?

  1. Jeromie, there are a few conferences coming up in October in the Philadelphia area:

    Video Game Expo, October 9th - 11th

    GameX, October 23rd - 25th

    The Video Game Expo seems to be directed towards consumers, whereas the GameX conference may be better for networking with those in the industry. These conferences may be your best bet for the east coast.
