Registration fees and selection of types of passes is varied.  Regular registration ends on March 20th, which includes discounted prices.   Exhibitors, just to name a very few, range from Adotomi, BlooBuzz, GameFly, Live2D and Ubisoft Entertainment.

The conference will also feature the 14th annual Independent Games Festival where original games compete for the attention of the publishing community, and the 12th annual Game Developers Choice Awards, the distinguished peer-recognition awards in the digital games industry.

San Francisco also provides a fantastic backdrop for a large convention like this.  Vendors and exhibitors thrive in the Moscone Center with over 740,000 square feet of exhibit space.  Because of its design and architecture it is the perfect place to host high-tech events.  This is a great place for using video walls, lighting and sound systems, free-standing kiosk computers, and other eye catching tech equipment.

Whether you are a game developer, venture capitalist, studio manager, executive producer, vendor, sponsor, seasoned veteran or student, there is something at GDC for everyone.  This conference proves to be one of the most exciting, interactive and engaging events of the year.  There is something eye-catching, imagination bending and thought provoking around every corner!
