Europe's leading development publication now premier media partner with world's biggest game dev event

The premier global event for games developers has agreed a partnership deal with Develop Magazine and Develop Online.

This year's conference and expo runs from Tuesday March 9th to Saturday March 13th at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. Registration is open now at https://secure.gdconf.com/2010/registrations/attendee.

"The Game Developers Conference is delighted to partner with Develop this year," said GDC event director Meggan Scavio.

"Their editorial team is one of the best and brightest in the business and I look forward to their coverage of GDC 2010."

Develop is Europe's only business website and publication dedicated solely to game development - covering design, coding, art, sound and business development.

The monthly Develop publication boasts 11,000 targeted request-only readers across its print and digital edition every month. A free digital edition subscription is available at www.develop-online.net/digital-edition.

Develop is also powerful online. Its website www.develop-online.net attracted 83,000 unique visitors and 210,000 page views during November, according to Google Analytics.

The site offers daily news, jobs, technology updates, opinion and info-sharing amongst a strictly specialised professional community.

Special coverage in print and online will build up to GDC, helping exhibitors and delegates plan and maximise their attendance.

A special print edition will be published in March - with extra high circulation. This will be distributed within the Moscone Center during the event. The Develop team will be on hand throughout.

"GDC is massively important to our readers. We're delighted to be working in partnership with the organisers to make sure that Develop readers make the most of this essential conference and expo," commented Intent Media boss and Develop publisher Stuart Dinsey.
