About Us (and a little history)

The Austin Game Conference was founded by Chris Sherman in 2003 with the close help of Gordon Walton and Rich Vogel who served as conference co-chairs. After a four year run, in 2006 AGC was sold to UBM Tech, the owners of the Game Developers Conference (GDC). The show was renamed GDC Austin and subsequently GDC Online and continued to run in Austin until 2012. Approximately 3,000 attendees, speakers and sponsors from around the world participated in the Austin Game Conference each year from 2005 to 2012.

Now, through a coordinated effort from an outstanding advisory board, leaders in the game development community, the show’s original founder and AGC’s original conference co-chairs, we have relaunched this powerful and valuable developer conference. Please join us at the Austin Convention Center on September 21-22, 2016 for the Austin Game Conference.

Attendees include technology decision-makers setting the standards and looking for insights to improve their products and businesses. Attendees come to AGC to drill down to the key issues.
