The Game Connect Asia Pacific is Australia’s premier annual game development conference, exhibition and networking event for the Asia Pacific Games Industry and is administered by the Game Developers’ Association of Australia. After a very successful Gold Coast 2010 meet the conference is returning to Melbourne in 2011.
That’s right the best gaming and computer production knowledge base this country has to offer is set converge on Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre from Monday November 14 to Wednesday November 16, 2011. This year the theme is set as ‘The Journey’, which gives the industry a chance to look back at what’s been achieved and also forward to horizons yet explored. Antony Reed, CEO of the GDAA explains this years theme “’The Journey’ is a liberating theme for the conference as it not only allows us to look forward and plot the path of the Australian game development industry over the next few years, but also lets us look back at our evolution, dissecting what has been learned over 31 years of creating games in Australia,”
The GDAA site promises this years ‘GCAP, ‘The Journey’ will consist of a number of tracks – programming, art, design, audio, business development and marketing – addressing the needs of the whole industry. The conference will also include multiple presentation formats, including panels, round table discussions, lectures and master classes.’
Based on last year’s event this will be invaluable to anyone in or studying to be a part of the gaming community. The chance to meet so many of this countries brightest and also some of the pioneers of the industry. Drop Bear Gaming will be a part of this year’s event in some way and we look forward to seeing you there. Stay tuned for more info as it comes to hand.
