GDC Europe is making a triumphant return to Cologne, Germany this summer and today is the day to register early at a discounted rate.
Organizers of the Game Developers Conference announced today that early registration for GDC Europe 2015 has officially opened, and there's no better place to find the essential pan-European perspective of game development and business trends currently happening throughout the continent.
Organized by UBM Tech Game Network, the event, now in its seventh year, will run Monday through Tuesday, August 3rd and 4th at the Cologne Congress-Centrum Ost in Cologne, Germany.
Register by July 8th and you can save 200 euros on an All Access Pass. In addition, this year sees the return of the GDC Europe Student Pass, a more affordable alternative to the All Access Pass created specifically for qualified students interested in learning and networking at the conference.
As always, the Student Pass is only available to verifiable full-time students at an accredited college or university. Students must provide a Valid University ID and proof of full-time status.
GDC Europe continues to serve the pan-European game industry by gathering the world's leading game development professionals to discuss current trends across platforms and industry disciplines. Last year's event included highlights like veteran developer Charles Cecil delivering a postmortem of his work creating the seminal adventure game Broken Sword and Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester offering advice to his fellow developers on how to make games that stand out in an increasingly more crowded marketplace.
Industry veterans hosted panel discussions, lectures and talks including standouts like Ninja Theory co-founder Tameem Antoniades discussing the challenges of adapting an independent spirit to the realities of AAA development and Vlambeer's Rami Ismail sharing practical tips on how to perfect the way you pitch your game.
Of course, GDC Europe 2015 will also continue to offer business and networking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and day and evening networking events. For more information, check out the GDC Europe website.
