Geneva Gaming Convention

The Geneva Gaming Convention (aka GGC) is taking place for the very first time in Palexpo from October 7th until the 9th; this is a unique opportunity for video games geeks to come and discover the latest productions outside the Big industrial market. Often – wrongly – perceived as isolating, the video game is lately gaining social skills and has become the core of innovations which the event will be keen to highlight. In order to do this, more than a dozen association have confined forces to offer an international aura, with its dedicated stands, many conferences, competitions and various presentations and a LAN major Party. The cheery on top of the cake: a symphony orchestra will play “The Legend of Zelda” at the Arena, which is a very happy coincidence (is it really a coincidence?).
What better way to introduce you to this event than to interview Nicolas Pidancet (one of the founders); I met him at Michael Granja’s workshop, who is one of the artist who contributed to the visual effects of this event…

• more than 5K expected visitors, from 9 to 99 years old
• more than 1k online viewers
• more than 430 laners
• more than 130 volunteers
• many animations and tournaments
