Think Services Game Group, producers of the Game Developers Conferences, Game Developer Magazine, and Gamasutra.com, has announced it will present the second Game Developers Conference China (GDC China) in Shanghai from October 11th-13th, 2009.
Supported by an advisory board that includes representatives from Shanda, Epic Games China, 9you and DJL International and endorsed by key government agencies associated with the industry, GDC China will once again bring the GDC’s authoritative content and global reach to the region.
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.
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.
“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.”
