Partering with IGDA

About

The East Coast Game Conference, the largest gathering of video game professionals on the East Coast, returns in 2016 for its 8th year! The conference provides video game professionals, academics and industry with an engaging program and opportunities for networking and collaboration. The conference is presented by the Triangle Game Initiative, a non-profit trade association of video game companies in North Carolina and the International Game Developers Association (IGDA), a non-profit trade association of video game developers around the world.

In 2015 we expanded out into another half day of content to encompass 2.5 days. Starting on Tuesday with a communications connections day then on to 2 days of great content from industry experts. The core and focus of the two-days are six simultaneous tracks of talks and panels covering a wide range of game development topics appealing to programmers, artists, designers, producers, students, academics and business executives. The six tracks are: Design, Programming, Art, Narrative, Serious Games, and Audio. The Career Lounge will also be back for 2016.

In 2015, more than 1,500 people attended ECGC and in 2016 we are expanding the content with additional tracks, content and speakers from around the world. We had significant growth in 2015 with our IGDA partnership and are hard at work to bring you a bigger and better ECGC for 2016!
