Introducing the team who will be attending GDC on behalf of CGHero this year in San Francisco.

CGHero is in full swing, gearing up to attend the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2023 in San Francisco in just a couple of weeks. The company is sending a team of seven to be on the floor, each of whom plays a critical role in the company's operations. In this article, we'll introduce you to each member of the CGHero team who will be attending GDC 2023.

Will this be your first time attending GDC?

"I've been fortunate to attend GDC a couple of times before both pre-pandemic and GDC 2022. From looking at the expo floor, it is looking like the conference in back in full swing and it is great to see all the major players coming back to the space.
This is our first year exhibiting as CGHero. Our hope is to raise awareness about the company and our latest plans. I'm also presenting a demo and panel discussion for the first time at the show, which is exciting! Looking forward to meeting new faces and old for what is already set to be a jam packed show.
