Event returns for year two, runs from September 24th to 26th 2008

CMP, organisers of GDC, have confirmed the return of China GDC, which will run from September 24th to 26th in Beijing nexr year.

The inaugural event took place earlier this year in Shanghai, at the end of August, and saw 2,000 attendees visit.

An advisory board of Chinese developers will help choose the conference's content so the event remains 'by China, for China' and CMP is working with local events firm IDG to put the show together.

"While GDC connects the worldwide game development community, the goal of China GDC is to provide the burgeoning Chinese market a unique, specialised experience," said Meggan Scavio, senior conference manager of CMP's Game Developers Conference. "We look forward to expanding on the success of the 2007 event by complementing the formula and spirit of GDC with the extended reach of our partners in China."
