Ready to Get Your Game On? Pre-Reg and Event Submission for Gen Con Indy 2011 Begin


INDIANAPOLIS (January 25, 2011) – Gen Con Indy
, the original, longest running, best attended, gaming convention in the world, accelerates into 2011 with the opening of event submissions and pre-registration. On January 14th, Gen Con began accepting submissions for gaming events; event organizers have already created over 1,000 events in the first week alone.   Sunday January 23rd Gen Con officially kicked off badge pre-registration. Gen Con Indy will take place at the Indiana Convention Center August 4-7, 2011. It promises to be an exciting year with new space in the convention center and hotels. Commitments from exhibitors are stronger than ever: Mayfair Games has already stepped up as an official co-sponsor of Gen Con Indy 2011!

For over 43 years, Gen Con Indy has been creating trends and breaking records. Last year, more than 30,000 unique attendees experienced Gen Con Indy. In 2011 get lost in a phantasm of art exhibits. Stare at jaw-dropping costumes, or better yet, wear one of your own. Meet the movers and the shakers in the gaming industry. Check out the newest games and get a sneak peek at the latest editions. The most-repeated wisdom for newcomers is “Game, Eat, Sleep: Choose two.”
