Dutch Games Industry delegation for GDC / MeetToMatch – The San Francisco Edition 2022

The Dutch Games Association, together with MeetToMatch, proudly presents the opportunity to join a Dutch delegation to San Francisco and access to MeetToMatch – The San Francisco Edition 2022 in the week of March 21 to 25, 2022.

The Dutch Games Association announces the Dutch Lounge: a private meeting area for the Dutch Games Industry during GDC 2022, just one block away from Moscone Center. We are convinced that having a location outside of the official GDC Expo offers the additional opportunity to meet with people that do not have a GDC pass, while still being close to the official venue.

The delegation is focused on traveling to San Francisco during GDC. Obviously we are recommending to make your own consideration if you are comfortable to visit the event physically. Simultaneously, we also invite people to join the event virtually, so you can participate from the comfort of home.

This opportunity has been made possible with the support of Creative NL and the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO).

The Program

Together with the Dutch Consulate and NBSO, we are planning to organize several items, such as:

  • Preliminary to GDC week –> Potential Los Angeles Start-up Program with NBSO.
  • Breakfast session at Dutch Consulate – Program to be announced. Tuesday morning, March 22, 2022
  • Business hours at Consulate. During GDC week –> Per appointment.
These items are free after registration through the form.

Safety measures and potential implications.

The Dutch Lounge will follow national and local guidelines with regard to COVID-19 measures to ensure a safe and comfortable space. Complying with these measures could results in additional precautions such as, but not limited to, obligatory face masks, and social distancing. Such measures might results in limited meeting opportunities in the Dutch lounge, the refusal of entry for meeting counterparts from meetings scheduled outside of MeetToMatch or the request of temporarily leaving the premises if the Dutch lounge participant has no current meeting planned.
