Swapcard’s All-in-One Platform Guaranteed a Smooth Registration Process for Informa Tech’s GDC Event

What is the Game Developers Conference?

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.
