European GDC 2009 to Run With GamesCon
The 2009 Game Developers Conference in Europe will be held in Cologne, Germany, August 17th - 19th. Also in Cologne this summer will be the Germany-based GamesCon, which will immediately follow the GDC August 19th - 23rd. The two organizational groups are working together to make a stellar week, not to be missed!
Frank Sliwka, who formerly worked at GC organizer Leipziger Messe, where he was conference director for the GC Developers Conference (GCDC) and national/international advisor, will join the Think Services Game Group as Vice President of European Business Development and Event Director, GDC Europe.
In association with the announcement, Think Services is acquiring the business of Global Games Media (GGM), the Sliwka-headed organization specializing in marketing, business development, and event management for the international game industry.
Sliwka will lead the management of GDC Europe, bringing with him years of game industry conference and event management experience. The event will take place August 17-19, 2009 in Cologne, Germany, alongside the GamesCom event, which recently changed its dates to August 19-23, 2009.
If you can't make it, fear not. The Think Services Group also hosts several other GDC's in North America - March is for San Fransisco, CA, September is for Austin, TX, and a new conference for Canada has been recently announced.
