Countdown to GDC: Seven days to go

This time next week, GDC 2015 will have begun.

Yes, we know: that’s shockingly soon. But panic not, because Develop is here to ease you into the busiest week of the games development calendar.

Every day between now and Monday, March 2nd, we’ll be providing helpful countdown coverage encompassing everything from time management tips and must-see sessions to suggestions on where to grab that much-needed post-conference beer.

For this, we need your help. We want you to email with:

  • Your recommendations for the best sessions and talks to see
  • Your tips on how to make the most of your time at GDC
  • Any advice on lesser-known events and exhibitions that people might miss
  • Lessons you’ve learned the hard way from previous GDCs

Send in your suggestions and we’ll post the best ones later in the week.

We’ll also be running important reminders: for example, online registration ends at 11.59pm Pacific Time on Wednesday, February 25th, so you only have two days left if you want to save u[ to $300 on selected passes and avoid the need to purchase them on-site.

Head to the official GDC stie to register and secure your pass.

Finally, Friday will see the release of Develop’s special GDC Must-See guide – an email bulletin to Develop readers rounding up key exhibitors and events throughout the week. To get your company involved, email or

Don’t forget, the March issue of Develop will be on the show floor all week, giving you the chance to get your company in front of thousands of GDC attendees.
