The event will take place between November 10th and 12th.

“As we move into our eighth year, the NASSCOM Game Developer Conference 2016 grows in strength, with a speaker lineup and program that provides our delegates with a healthy mix of some of the best regional and international games development and business experience out there”, said Rajesh Rao, Chairman of the NASSCOM Gaming Forum.

“NGDC 2016 sees the introduction of the Virtual Reality Pavilion that will show off the best home grown VR experiences from Indian studios, as well as a showcase for the makers of board games with a Board Game Pavilion, plus Pitch and Match - a matchmaking tool for delegates to set up meetings before they reach the conference to maximise their time and get the most out of the conference”.

Tickets are still available at the regular price until October 30th, or on-site on November 6th.
