Game Developers Conference Gets New Name

Think Services Game Group, organizers of the Game Developers Conference (GDC), has changed its name to Game Developers Conference Online (GDC Online) and will return to Austin for this year’s October 5-8, 2010 event.

The name change of the conference was done to better reflect its focus on the online gaming market.

For four days this October, GDC Online will feature business development talks, technical sessions on programming for connected games, and an expo hall that brings together publishers, tool- vendors and service providers for online and social games.

“All the GDC events in Austin have built a strong reputation for engaging the online development community, and for serving as an essential forum for developers to learn and network. We’re proud to say that GDC Online will continue this legacy,” says Izora de Lillard, Event Director, GDC Online.

“Whether you’re an up-and-coming social game developer, an experienced online game creator looking for technical gems, or a business professional looking to expand into the online game space, GDC Online will be the place to be on October 5-8.”
