GDAA’s CEO Tony Reed announced the theme of GCAP this year. To paraphrase, Tony made the point that we built the walls to protect ourselves, but it was important to use events like GCAP to meet people and build relationships because we’re stronger together and can weather what’s to come. And that was echoed in the keynote.
“The Walls We Built Ourselves were built with cynicism, but can be broken down with sincerity” is the crux of the keynote given by Dream Daddy developer Leighton Gray at this morning’s GCAP opening lecture.
GCAP 2018 is looking to be the biggest event in its history. More attendees, more speakers and more panels means that the event has now moved into bigger spaces at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
As a first-time GCAP attendee, I’m excited to meet my peers and learn more about the industry in a capacity that I often don’t get to see as a writer. As Stan Yarramunua said in his amazing Welcome to Country performance today, “That’s what we’re here for today. To learn.”
GCAP 18 is a part of Melbourne International Games Week 2018. For more information on this event and a full schedule, you can check out the official site.
