Alongside all this, the GDC Expo will showcase all of the most relevant game development tools, platforms and services helping to drive the industry forward, alongside a raft of country-specific pavilions, playable games in the GDC Play area, and more.

GDC will also feature the 20th annual Independent Games Festival, the longest-running and largest festival relating to independent games worldwide, where original games compete for the attention of the publishing community, and the 18th annual Game Developers Choice Awards, the premier accolades for peer-recognition in the digital games industry.
