Some people join the International Game Developers Association simply for the intangible benefit of supporting the mission of the organization, while others join to gain a specific discount or benefit. Whichever the case, as an IGDA member you are entitled to a wide range of tangible benefits.

We are always working to expand this list and provide more value for your membership. Do you have an idea for a benefit you'd like us to provide? We welcome any suggestions you may have - please contact us with your ideas!

Unless otherwise noted, these benefits are available to all IGDA members worldwide.
