ECGC 2023

The Largest Conference for Game Developers on the East Coast


This year’s East Coast Game Conference (ECGC) will be held April 18-20, 2023! Event host Triangle Game Initiative is busy recruiting premier speakers and sponsors to make 2023 the largest event ever. We plan to host more international speakers, a larger group of seasoned developers, emerging Indies, and more students looking to break into the game industry.


The Research Triangle Park of North Carolina is home to more than 40 companies developing, publishing, or providing technology or services to the video game industry. These companies employ more than 1,100 people directly involved in creating video games, simulations and video game technology.

The Triangle Game Initiative (TGI) was founded in 2008 to support and promote the video game industry in the RTP area. A 2009 local gathering hosted by TGI hoped to attract 200 regional game programmers, artists, and producers. More than 500 attended. In 2010 the conference grew to over 800 attendees and has continued to increase attendance each year. Rebranded as East Coast Game Conference™, the annual event attracts more than 1,800 attendees.
