We know you know that next week is GDC. It’s kinda a big deal.
But you might not know that we’re in town with a trio of side events too. Whether you want to network after dark over drinks at the Pocket Gamer Party, compete in one of our Indie Pitches, or hear the experts speak at the Blockchain Games Next mini-summit, we have something for you...
Where will we see you?
An informal evening of networking with a bar, just 15 minutes from the conference.
1) The Pixonic & Pocket Gamer Party
After the first day of GDC, Monday, March 18th, we invite you to The Grand from 8pm for an informal evening of networking with a bar, just 15 minutes from the conference on foot. It’s always a relaxed highlight of the week.
Chill out in the company of game developers, publishers and other industry professionals. We guarantee a pleasant setting – and also free drinks, dancing and activities.
Anyone attending the conference is welcome - just register in advance and bring your GDC badge to the party.
Put the spotlight on some of the world's best indie developers.
2) The Big Indie Pitch sponsored by Game Camps and in association with season sponsors, G-STAR
The Big Indie Pitch and PC Indie Pitch return to GDC next week, March 19. Come join us for networking and pitching as we once again put the spotlight on some of the world's best indie developers – and stick around to make more connections thanks to the developer drinks after the pitch winners are announced!
