GDC Next is the successor to GDC Online and along with the App Developers Conference, which is a brand new event as well. Both these events will debut on November 5th-7th next year at the Los Angeles Convention Centre. Attendees will be able to sign up individually for the two conferences and also can attend both at a discounted price.
GDC Next (the successor to GDC Online) focuses on what’s next in smartphone & tablet, social, independent, cloud and other major forms of games. Whether a designer, programmer, architect, producer, artist, marketer, businessperson or all of the above, the new show will prove vital to making great games and making money in the most vibrant new areas of the game industry.
From the creators of GDC, the App Developers Conference (ADC) is a brand new event focusing on the very best development, UI, marketing and business of apps. Organizers will be recruiting the very best app creators, whether they be on mobile devices, on the web, or beyond, and getting them to present their best practices to attendees.
“We’re delighted to announce our next generation of events dedicated to both games and apps”, said Simon Carless, EVP, UBM Tech. “As the boundaries blur between games and other content across both hardware and software, we’re delighted to be expanding our Fall GDC event onto the West Coast, and adding a whole new event showcasing learnings from the entire app ecosystem.”
