GDC Summer event announced for August
Informa Tech, the organizer of the Game Developer Conference, has announced GDC Summer, a replacement for the previously postponed GDC.
GDC Summer takes place in the Moscone Center in San Francisco from August 4th through August 6th and “will retain the same high level of expert-led talks as the traditional GDC,” according to the organizer. Attendees can look forward to “high-quality technical content, mixed with valuable roundtable discussions to foster conversation and connection.”
“The event will host a new series of microtalks and fireside chats, as well as a dedicated space for comprehensive career development sessions covering topics such as how to pitch your game, effective communication strategies, how to land an investor/publisher and business development strategies,” the announcement adds.
Informa Tech stated that it “will continue to monitor the latest information from health officials to ensure a safe and compelling event for everyone at GDC Summer, GDC 2021 and beyond.”
The Game Developer Conference was originally scheduled to take place from March 16th through March 20th. However, it was announced earlier this month that the event was being postponed due to concerns regarding COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus.
