About the event


The 2025 edition of the Game Developers Conference will be hosted as a live trade fair at the Moscone Convention Center between the 17th and 21st of March 2025. The event venue will not feature strict coronavirus precautions. This is due to the country repealing its pandemic restrictions.

Game Developers Conference – A Brief Introduction

The Game Developer's Conference (GDC) is one of the biggest and most important conferences slash expos within the gaming industry in the world. This annual event runs out of different locations, but is currently based in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. Every year GDC seems to grow bigger and attendance records reflect this clearly – the edition in 2019 scoring the highest attendance record in its entire history. That’s 29,000 international visitors. The expo itself offered solutions and products from 550 exhibitors in total. That makes the Game Developers Conference a premier platform for innovation, business, and networking.

An Industry Profile

GDC defies definitions and limits as it’s become such a monumental event with an area dedicated to just about any form of hardware, software, and solution for game development. The platforms have certainly grown to include consoles, mobile and handheld devices, tablets, online, computer games and most recently VR and AR. GDC is also the place to learn and play new releases as well as enjoy playable indie games, retro games and alternative controllers. The conference portion of the event is exceptionally elaborate with more than 800 items to enjoy from lectures to panels to discussions. The audience is varied and has come to include developers, engineers, trainees, distributors, programmers, artists, producers, game designers, audio professionals and publishers.
