Second Gathering of Top Chinese and International Developers Will Return to Shanghai in October with Strong Advisory Board Support and Government Endorsement
GDC China aims to advance the state of China's game industry by featuring top-quality content and incorporating the GDC's global development community perspective. The 2007 inaugural event was produced "by developers, for developers," offering unique learning, sharing and networking opportunities for the Chinese market. To deepen this connection between China and the worldwide game development community and enable an infusion of creative ideas and strategic partnerships, the GDC is coming to China again in October of 2009.
"We are excited to return to Shanghai in October to repeat the success of our launch event in 2007," said Meggan Scavio, Event Director. "In true GDC spirit, this event will present attendees with the knowledge, skills and networking opportunities to help them get a head start in the burgeoning Chinese games industry."
GDC China will serve as the last global event in 2009 for the GDC's global event calendar which includes the main GDC in San Francisco in March, GDC Canada in Vancouver in May, GDC Europe in Cologne, Germany in August, and Austin GDC in Austin, Texas in September. The GDC and GDC China are not affiliated with any other event operators in China.
