NOTE: The below information pertains to GDC 2019. Please check back for updates and subscribe to the official GDC newsletter for the latest event announcements.

Debuting in 2019, GDC @ The Gardens, together with Niantic, will be open to all (not solely GDC passholders) and feature seating, blankets, games, and curated live music. Located directly adjacent to the Moscone Center in the Yerba Buena Gardens, the space is meant to provide a relaxing sanctuary where everyone can find some peace amid an otherwise busy week.

Throughout the week, GDC @ The Gardens will host Off The Grid food trucks (food purchase limited to GDC passholders due to local zoning regulations), real-life incarnations of a Pokémon GO Pokestop and Ingress Patron Portal, and deliberately chilled-out DJ sets.
