With over 26,000 attendees expected and 500+ education sessions scheduled in 2018, Game Developers Conference is North America’s largest event dedicated to game developers. As digital natives who live and breathe gaming, our San Francisco-based mobile experts will be making the most of the conference, taking place between March 21 and 23 at the Moscone Convention Center.
GDC serves as a testament to how far the industry has come. Produced by the UBM Game network and now in its 37th edition, the conference attracts important industry insiders, from indie developers to big industry players – resulting in over 500 talks on the topic of game development, VR and much more. Initially, GDC was more focused on computer games but is now heavily expanding into the emerging VR and AR space for games and entertainment. Year after year, GDC continues to define market innovations and provide insight into the future of gaming.
With many developers also unveiling their new creations during the event, we can’t wait to try out some new titles too. We’ll be on the lookout for entries at the “Independent Games Festival”, the longest-running festival relating to independent games worldwide, as well as the “Game Developers Choice Award” the premier accolade in the digital gaming industry. Another highly-anticipated yearly tradition is the “Classic Game Postmortem” series which takes a look behind-the-scenes of the most innovative games of their time (hello, Sonic the Hedgehog!), with their creators dishing out the lessons they discovered while bringing these games to life.
Speakers’ tracks at the event include marketing, programming, advocacy, and monetization topics. At crobo we want to help talented game developers acquire loyal users at scale, so it’s important for our team to attend relevant industry talks and stay in the loop with the latest market innovation trends and future trend predictions. We can then apply this knowledge to help our trusted partners outperform their competition in this highly saturated market. Read our previous industry-insights blog posts on the topic of gaming here and take a look at how we helped our gaming clients achieve their KPIs in social gaming and casual gaming via our case studies.
With a longstanding history in performance-marketing for gaming apps, we look forward to making the most of this opportunity to gain new insights and also expand our network. We’ll be meeting with both established and emerging game developers at the event to discuss how we can help improve their user acquisition strategy and boost LTV.
