GDC is next week and we can’t be more excited. The San Francisco based Game Developer Conference is the biggest event of the year for mobile game developers around the world and attracts some of the biggest names in the industry for the entire week. The conference has many satellite events, mixers, dinners and parties. The biggest satellite event is Game Connection America which is more focused on business transactions and brands itself as the “deal making summit”.
Who is coming?
With so many things going around it’s easy to get lost so we wanted to offer a quick way to know what companies and people will be there. In the spreadsheet below you can find a list of 715 companies that will be at GDC or one of the satelite event. For some of them, the spreadsheet also includes the names and titles of the attendees.

Of course, SOOMLA will be there too so if you want to meet – drop us a line to scottie [at] soomla [dot] com.
How to connect with other companies
GDC does offer a meeting system but it’s not considered a very good one. On top of that, most of the people who are coming to the event will not actually be buying a ticket to GDC. This is why the spreadsheet is even more important. To connect with some of these companies we recommend these 3 ways:
- Game Connection – the ticket is a bit expensive but this is the most effective way to generate meetings during GDC week.
- GDC Meet to Match – system to arrange and request meetings to registered attendees.
- Linkedin – simply send people connection requests and ask for a meeting
