From March 8-12 I will be in San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference 2010. If you would like to meet me for a coffee at the Moscone Center, or somewhere around there for breakfast, lunch or dinner, let me know at marcvanderchijs (at) gmail (dot) com. I am especially interested to meet with online game companies (incl. social game companies) that are considering to set up their business in China, and in VC’s looking at the China online game or Internet market. But of course I also enjoy talking to entrepreneurs or people working for start-ups in or around SF.
Last year I planned so many meetings that I missed most of the GDC sessions, this year I hope I won’t make the same mistake. But I still feel that meeting people is the best way to learn new things about what’s happening in the Bay area in general and in game development in particular.
Also, if you are organizing a GDC party that week, feel free to invite me ;). So far I only confirmed the Accel Partners cocktail on Tuesday, all other nights are still open for parties… I am looking forward to a busy but also fun week!
Hey Marc, I work in Zynga’s strategy and corp dev group. Would be great to meet up. I work and live in the city so relatively flexible in terms of place/time.
