Gen Con's Historic 50th Convention Nearly Sold Out

Can you believe that Gen Con is 50. And, the largest and longest running hobby, fantasy, science fiction, and adventure gaming convention in North America is going to be one event not to miss. So, if you're planning on going they recommend that purchase either your 4-Day or Single Day badges soon to guarantee entry to Gen Con 50. Badges are available to at while supplies last.

“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.”

The convention has capped Trade Day and other individual badge types previously in Indianapolis, but has never limited 4-Day or Single Day badge sales.

"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.

Last year’s Gen Con featured attendees from all 50 states, each Canadian province, and more than 60 countries. Celebrating 50 years in 2017, Gen Con 50 will be sponsored by Mayfair Games, Paizo, Inc., and Rio Grande Games. Get your badges soon - Gen Con 50 is going to be a blast!

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.
