How it Works

One guild leader, two guild members, unparalleled adventures together. Six Guilds will be traveling to GDC this year with the help of the Power Leveling program.

Adventure Awaits

Guild Leaders are responsible for scheduling 2-3 adventures during GDC. Members participate in activities such as lunch meetups, intimate site visits, or invitations to exclusive gatherings.

Complimentary Passes

Each participant will receive a complimentary Core+Summit Pass to GDC 2020 (valued at $2,199 USD), courtesy of the GDC Scholarship Program sponsored by UBM. 

Action-Oriented

Guild Leaders will act as a point of contact for Guild Members—from sharing conference tips before departure to answering questions at GDC, they will have your back!
