The Game Developers Conference (GDC), hosted by Informa, is the game industry’s premier event for championing developers and the advancement of their craft.

GDC returned to San Francisco in March 2022 as the city’s largest in-person event in over two years. When a complex event like the GDC returned to in-person in 2022, a smooth registration process was a key component for success. 

Swapcard’s registration helped streamline and simplify a complex registration process at GDC, giving organizers peace of mind knowing that there was a team of experts taking care of everything. Swapcard worked closely with Informa Tech to create an all-in-one solution that handled every aspect of the event including lead capture capabilities and session scanning for attendees and exhibitors. Attendees had everything they needed in one place to seamlessly and safely enjoy the GDC experience.
