"Game Developers Conference - great opportunity to connect with thousands of game developers"

Positives:

The event is super focused on game developers, and if you are looking to sell to game developers or want to leverage gaming publishers for your digital media and advertising needs, you will find exactly what you are looking for. The expo is always full and there isn't a dull moment.

Negatives:

If you are looking for a small exhibit space on the show floor, you are likely to get swallowed up by the giants in the room. As a marketer with a small booth, be advised to host some sort of a fun draw in order to still get the food traffic.

checkmark-singleI don't think I'm talking about the same type of event that you are. This wasn't a business event at all. I avoid all business events!
