Holy moley! Gen Con tickets are near on sold out!
If you don’t know about it already, Gen Con is the biggest gaming convention in America. It is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, so everyone is looking to join in the party.
“Gen Con has prepared to host the largest convention in its 50-year history,” said Adrian Swartout, CEO of Gen Con. “I would like to thank all the attendees who have decided to celebrate this historic year with us. To continue providing the best attendee experience, we have decided to carefully control badge sales, and we will begin capping badges when we reach our internal attendance estimates.”
This would be the first time the convention has ever needed to cap 4-Day or Single Day badge sales. They recommend that if you want to go, you should buy your badges soon.
“Gen Con 50 is the 15th year the convention has been hosted in Indy. With record-setting attendance and continued expansion into Lucas Oil Stadium, this year’s show will surely surpass last year’s $71 million in economic impact for Central Indiana,” said Leonard Hoops, President & CEO of Visit Indy.
Gen Con 50 will take place August 17-20, 2017 in the Indiana Convention Center, at Lucas Oil Stadium, and at participating hotels.
The convention will feature more than 500 exhibitors, more than 17,000 events, and an exclusive concert from Grammy-winning recording artist They Might Be Giants. You can purchase your badges at gencon.com while supplies last.
