Game Developers Conference 2017 Recap01/04/2017

From February 27th to March 3rd 2017, San Francisco hosted the annual Game Developers Conference, which is THE not-to-be-missed event for people interested in gaming. The Wallonia Export and Investment Agency had a booth in the conference and welcomed eight Walloon companies: Big Bad Wolf, Fishing Cactus, Hellion Cat, IntoPIX, MoodMe, Reed, SoftKinetic, and DogStudio!

For the fourth year in a row, Wallonia/Belgium in the USA organized a GDC event in San Francisco. This year, it was a Belgian Game Mixer event in partnership with Flanders Investment & Trade and Flanders DC. Three special guests, Wallace Poulter from Magic Leap, Pierre Gaubil from The Refiners, and Carl Callewaert from Unity Technologies opened the evening with their invaluable insights into the industry. Next up, twenty Belgian companies each made quick elevator pitches to present their gaming innovations. After the show, programmers, developers and entrepreneurs mingled while drinking local Californian beer from Hopsy and enjoying Belgian appetizers from Vive la Tarte.

We would like to thank all the attendees for their entrepreneurial energy and unique insights, which made the 2017 Belgian Game Mixer a great success! See you next year!
