2008 Lyon Game Developers Conference Announced

Game Developers Conference creator the CMP Game Group have partnered with Connection Events to announced the Lyon Game Developers Conference, to take place alongside the long-running Game Connection in Lyon, France this December 3rd-5th.
Game Developers Conference creators the CMP Game Group (also owners of Gamasutra.com) have partnered with Connection Events, a multi-faceted business matchmaking company known for the Game Connection convention, to produce the Lyon Game Developers Conference (GDC). The inaugural event, featuring content programmed by an advisory board consisting of both local and international developers who share a commitment to promote and support the game industry, is set to take place December 3-5 in Lyon, France. Lyon GDC will feature 60 classes over a two day period, as well as one day of master classes and tutorials that will overlap with Game Connection business meetings. The conference's main objectives are to provide a global picture of game development today, where attendees will share core technical expertise, and to learn from experiences at the cutting edge of European and global game development. Sessions will drill down into the six core disciplines of GDC (programming, visual arts, game design, audio, production, and business and management), and explore the broadening creative and business options for developers across multiple platforms and distribution channels. By featuring Lyon GDC and Game Connection in one place, attendees will access enhanced networking by interacting with both GDC speakers and Game Connection dealmakers within tailored social events. "Given our productive history of delivering GDC events in Europe, we are very pleased to present a custom iteration on the continent with Lyon GDC," said Jamil Moledina, executive director of the Game Developers Conference. "Having worked with Pierre Carde and the Game Connection team for many years at GDC, we anticipate that this partnership will result in the same authentic experience that developers expect from a GDC event." "The Game Developers Conference is known for bringing the most prominent speakers and influential partners to its world-class events," noted Pierre Carde, director of Connection Events. "Adding Lyon GDC to Lyon Game Connection answers the need of the industry and creates a powerful and logical partnership where participants will garner heightened value through focused and productive educational, networking, and business opportunities." More information, including the conference session and speaker lineup, official event schedule, and registration rates and deadlines, will be available soon at LyonGDC.com.
