GDC attendance dropped from 18,000 last year to 17,000 in 2009, Think Services said today.

“The success of this past week in San Francisco proves the resilience of the games industry,” said event director Meggan Scavio.

“It is a testament to the spirit of our more than 20 year old conference and community, and evidence of video games’ continued evolution into a mainstream form of entertainment, that the various constituents of the industry were able come together at GDC as they did [last] year.”

The 2010 event will take place from Tuesday, March 9 to Saturday, March 13 next year.
