Inaugural Vancouver event to take place in May

Think Services has opened registration for the inaugural Canadian outing of the Game Developers Conference.

The event will be organised into tracks based on stages of the development cycle rather than professions, centering around Concept/Pre-production, Production, Finalling and Post Launch/Analysis. A one day Game Career Seminar will also run alongside the conference.

"It oftentimes gets overlooked how much development activity occurs in Canada. With companies like EA, Activision, Disney Interactive Entertainment, and Ubisoft, responsible for production of major titles the region exerts a greater-than-realized impact on the global game industry," says Izora de Lillard, event director at Think Services Game Group.

"It's important to bring to attention the work, developmental challenges, and opportunities of Canadian developers in a meaningful forum such as the Game Developers Conference."

GDC Canada takes place on May 12th and 13th at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia. For more information, check out the official website.
