The Welsh Creative Industry employs 35,400 people in Wales with an annual turnover of £1.7 billion. There’s a vast amount of work going on in our creative industries in Wales, from world-famous screen production to behind-the-scenes advances in research and development. At the heart of these sectors, you’ll find experienced people and businesses and here in Wales we have a growing field of games engine technology that is underpinning new content production development. Thanks to our strong industry networks and collaborative spirit our games business can draw upon a pipeline of talent trained at our world-class universities, from designers and 3D artists to programmers and sound engineers.

The 38th Annual Games Developers Conference takes place from 18-22March 2024 at the Moscone Convention Centre in San Francisco, California and will deliver the industry’s greatest source of content and connections. GDC brings the game development community together to exchange ideas, solve problems and shape the future of the industry. You’ll find everything at GDC from investors, collaborators and inspiration.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to take your business to the next level.
