The best GDC 2017 parties

GDC 2017 is less than a week away and we want to make sure you know about all the best parties. Much like last year, there are a lot of after-hour GDC gatherings to attend. So much so, that it can be hard to pick where to spend your time. To make it easier for you, we’ve listed out our top GDC party picks that you should attend.

But before you check them out, be sure to visit our GDC website to see all the amazing activities we have in store. In addition to our big GDC party, we’ll be opening our office all week long. They’ll be massages, food, drinks, VR stations, video games and more. We’ll even have free pedicabs to shuttle you back and forth from the conference.

In the meantime, here are some parties you should check out.
