Gen Con, North America’s longest-running and best-attended tabletop game convention, has announced a complete sellout of badges for its 50th convention to be held August 17-20 in the Indiana Convention Center. The convention will not sell badges on-site and attendees, as in prior years, will be asked to display their badges while attending the show. In addition to its 50th convention, this Gen Con marks 15 years in Indianapolis.

 

“Our team is ecstatic to see so many choose to celebrate gaming history with us at the historic Gen Con 50, In this milestone year, we have seen gamers from around the world decide to make Gen Con their summer destination, and we’re anticipating our best show yet. We’ve made optimizing the attendee experience a core goal for Gen Con 50, and we are committed to balancing growth with world class programming.” Adrian Swartout, Gen Con CEO

 

In 2016, Gen Con had attendees from all 50 states, every Canadian province, and more than 60 countries. This year, the convention has expanded to the field level of Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, in addition to its space in the Indiana Convention Center and participating hotels. For the first time, Gen Con also will host a concert in Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a performance by Grammy winning recording artists They Might Be Giants. This concert and entrance to Lucas Oil Stadium both require Gen Con 50 badges.
