If you haven’t heard of Gen Con, you’ve been missing out on some awesome entertainment and game-focused events for quite some time. Gen Con, short for “Geneva Convention” has been around since 1967. It was started by a small group of war game enthusiasts. Originally hosted in Geneva Wisconsin, Gen Con has seen tremendous growth evolving over the years and now takes place in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Rooted in hobby gaming, Gen Con has spread its wings to attract a world-wide audience for games and entertainment. From playing cards to electronic games, costume contests, artists and celebrities, all ages are sure to enjoy this event. During all this, they also take time to support charities. Take a look at what they are doing and have done in the past to support the community.

Check out the exhibit halls and product demonstrations from game publishers, manufacturers and sellers. Check out some educational workshops on game development, painting miniatures or find out how to become a distributor for some of the wholesalers presenting products there.

Prepare to be dazzled by products that haven’t hit the consumer market yet. Manufacturers, publishers and educators look for networking events similar to the following that were held in 2007: “Increase K-12 Student’s Academic & Social Achievement with Board & Card Games,” “Hidden Secrets of the Internet,” and Buyer’s Training Session and Location Negotiations.”

Gen Con takes place August 15-18 this year. If you love card games, board games, miniature war games, video games, hybrid games, live-action role-playing games, you won’t want to miss it! You can sign up and purchase your badge here.
