You chose the online participation option in Game Industry Conference. If you want to come to GIC in person, you should go back and choose a different ticket.
We aim to help gamedev grow. We believe knowledge should be as openly available as possible. The #GICcares way of thinking is strong in us. We see PWYL as the only way to price full access to the online parts of the conference in 2021, as we did in 2020.
We are not differentiating online tickets. Everything will be available as PWYL. Not only the talks but even the business level access, including the premium business meetings system MeetToMatch.
One can see it as “price what is it worth to you”, or as…
Support or be supported
The GIC is organized by Vitruvio Foundation, a non-profit, non-governmental organization with statutory goals to support game development, education, research, and innovations.
Choosing its own price, one can back programs organized by GIC, these aside from the conference and its side-events include:
- support for small developers
- scholarships for young talented devs
- research projects on the game industry
- game jams, maratons, competitions
But how about those who need support?
Then the option to choose zero is RECOMMENDED for them.
Pay what you like ticket
The online counterpart of both the Premiumm Pass and the Business Pass. This ticket grants online access to all streamed knowledge from #GIC21, and to business meetings. Choosing your own price, you will back programs organized by GIC: scholarships, research, and others. Being a non-profit organization, our statutory goals are to support the growth of gamedev. But maybe it is you who needs support? Then the option to choose zero is meant for you.
