Celebrating our First 100 Members!

We are thrilled to share some exciting news that marks a significant milestone in our journey together – we have officially reached our first 100 members!

The company that pressed the 100th button was Skyline Studios Games and their Managing Director, Scott Dickens said:

"We are passionate about working collaboratively with other games studios, so after discovering GDN, we were thrilled to sign up to better connect with the industry as a whole and grow our network."

The achievement of reaching 100 members is a testament to the strength and vibrancy of the game dev community, and we want to express our deepest gratitude to each of you for being a part of GDN.

As GDN celebrates this accomplishment, we also want to take a moment to reflect on what it means for our future. The influx of new members not only provides a foundation for our community but also opens up a world of opportunities for collaboration, networking, and business growth.

At GDN, we are often questioned about the true advantages of network membership. From our experience of managing UFO and PCN, we can attest that the primary benefit of joining any network lies in investing in future business opportunities. Our members consistently find that they not only recover their Annual Membership Fee but exceed it, leading to an impressive 97% renewal rate each year.

In the upcoming year, our goal is to establish a strong network across all key areas of game development and to enhance the visibility of GDN and its members within the industry. We aim to form collaborations and have a presence at the premier industry exhibitions, and provide you with practical tools for daily use, promoting intra-trade activities within GDN.

In January, registration will open for our first P2P event which takes place from 1-3 September 2024 at the stunning Hotel Croatia Cavtat. The five-star resort and conference centre is just 5.8 km from Dubrovnik International Airport.

The event is open to GDN members only and upon full registration, attendees are provided with access to our bespoke online P2P Scheduler, which allows them to schedule twenty-minute business meetings with companies of their choice ahead of our event.

To those who have joined us already ... you have taken the valuable opportunity to join us at the outset, positioning yourself to witness and actively contribute to GDN's growth. Congratulations! Your grasp of our vision leads me to believe that your foresight will earn you good business in the upcoming year.

Now more about our 100th member....

"Skyline Studios Games are a Cardiff-based indie team and our mission is to create new innovative game intellectual properties by fusing traditional mechanics and genres. We are passionate about evoking a profound sense of nostalgia, helping players re-experience the golden era of gaming, while introducing fresh new immersive gameplay experiences that captivate both old school gamers like ourselves as well as a new generation of players."

Cheers to our first 100, and here's to the next 100 and beyond!

Best wishes,

GDN Founder
