One of the year's biggest events for the development community will take place from 14th-18th March (public expo from 16th March) with GDC (Game Developers Conference) in San Francisco. Thousands of developers and industry professionals will descend on the city for a series of events, networking sessions and opportunities to try out new projects.

There'll be some interest in a major Nintendo project, too, with Pokémon Go to be shown off in a special session by the project's developer Niantic. The company's CEO, John Hanke, will be giving the presentation (date and time to be confirmed) to go into depth on the intriguing real-world AR game, the partnership with Nintendo and The Pokemon Company and how the app will work with the accompanying bluetooth device.

Below is part of the event's description.

Over the last three years, Niantic, Inc. has been defining the genre of Real World gaming, using smartphones and tablets to connect the digital world to the physical world. Niantic's newest game, Pokemon GO, ups the challenge of real world gaming design, taking a beloved franchise and setting its hundreds of brightly-colored monsters loose across the globe, adding a new Bluetooth wearable device created by Nintendo to the mix. Join Niantic founder and CEO John Hanke as he discusses how the company has developed a unique vision for delivering a mobile Pokemon experience that gets would-be trainers into the outdoors.

No fixed date and time has been set yet, but this'll be another event that builds anticipation for the promising Pokémon app.

Thanks to all that sent this in.
