From MokTask on WOTC Announce 2017 Convention Schedule

Disappointed that Wizards of the Coast isn’t going to be at Gencon this year, considering it is the direct descendant of the original convention that started in Lake Geneva those 50 years ago. But, when they (WOTC) said they weren’t doing Gencon anymore to focus on more conventions in a year, instead of just one big one, I guess it makes sense. I think last year, they weren’t ‘officially’ there, but a couple of the main people came out to Gencon because hey, it’s Gencon. I’d imagine if that was true, then the 50th will certainly draw them in.

Still kinda sucks. But, I’ll see them at Origins!
