Event Preview: GCAP 2017

Posted Oct 18, 2017

What is GCAP 2017? It stands for Game Connect Asia Pacific, and it’s the leading Australian conference for the games development, interactive media, and screen tech industries. This year, it’ll be held on October 24th and 25th at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center. AdColony is excited to be sponsoring this two-day, information-packed event.

GCAP attracts over 1,000 attendees, including influencers and executives from almost every Australian game development company. It brings together Australia, the Asia Pacific region, and beyond for insightful exchanges on everything from innovation and creativity to management and PR techniques. It equips attendees with the tools to stay on top of international trends across a variety of fields like programming, art, design, commercialization, and production.

This year, GCAP is all about “The Ripple Effect.” Sessions will delve into how one person can influence an industry and ways to harness it for success.
