Heads up folks: If you're planning on attending the 2017 Game Developers Conference next year, book your travel and accommodations sooner rather than later!
The start of GDC 2017 is closer than you think: February 27th, to be exact, in the beautiful city of San Francisco, California. Conference organizers have arranged special deals for GDC attendees with select housing partners, deals you can only access by booking your travel and accommodations through the GDC Travel hub.
Act fast, though: housing partners have reserved a set number of rooms for GDC attendees to book at a discounted rate, and as of this week roughly 60 percent of those special accommodations have been booked. That's a bit higher than usual this far out from the show, which is just over two months away.
So don't wait too long to arrange travel and lodging for GDC 2017 -- San Francisco is a vibrant city with lots to see and do, so if you don't take advantage of the exclusive GDC Travel hub hookups you'll be competing with other city visitors for accommodations.
And don't miss your opportunity to save money by registering for the conference early -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is January 18, 2017. GDC 2017 itself will take place February 27th - March 3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
