GDC Canada Returns May 6-7, 2010

By Paul Hunter

This past May we sent one of our veteran writers, Clinton Ma, to attend the inaugural GDC Canada. The event took place in Vancounver, from May 12-13. In case you haven't seen his two write-ups, have a look-see here and here.

On the official GDC Canada website they've announced the dates for next year's event will be May 6-7, 2010. The industry conference will once again be held in Vancouver, B.C. and will be held at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Center.

A write-up on Gamasutra notes that the first ever GDC Canada brought in more than 800 attendees -- representing a doubling in attendance over last year's Vancouver International Game Summit.

It's great to see the such rapid growth with the event, and with the GDC name now associated to it, I expect next year's conference to be even bigger.

So excited! Do you think you'll get a chance to make it out next year? :)

Hi VancityAllie: This year's event was pretty interesting, so I will definitely be making the effort to cover GDC again in 2010.

Hey VancityAllie,

I would love to make it out to GDC Canada but since I'm Toronto-based I doubt I'll have the opportunity. I mostly cover events happening in Ontario/Quebec.

We certainly hope to have Clinton attend next year's GDC Canada, look for an official announcement on the site early next year!
