Landmark event breaks last year's count of 18,250

Attendance record broken at GDC 25

A record 19,000 industry professionals packed into San Francisco last week for the Game Developers Conference, its organisers have announced.

The 25th edition of the event, which ran across five days last week, boasted over 650 speakers.

That mass of industry professionals together hosted 450 lectures, panels, summits, tutorials and roundtable discussions.

The 19,000-odd attendees breaks last year’s figure of 18,250.

Develop has covered 69 stories from the event, as well as a five-minute break-down of the show for the time-poor.
