Gen Con will begin to cap 2017 badge sales if current trends hold. The company recommends that interested attendees purchase 4-Day and Single Day badges soon to guarantee entry to Gen Con 50. Those interested can purchase badges at gencon.com while supplies last.
The convention will be the largest convention in its 50-year history. The move to cap badge sales is in hopes of providing the best experience for attendees. 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.
This is the convention’s 15th year being 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.
Gen Con 50 takes 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.
