Gen Con is increasing its 2017 presence within Lucas Oil Stadium (LOS), adding exhibition and event space to the same play field used by the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. To commemorate 2017’s historic Gen Con 50, the convention will create a showcase area on the LOS field that honors the first Gen Con, held in the 1967. In this space, attendees will get to see gaming artifacts and tributes to the early Gen Con events, including a homage construction of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin’s Horticultural Hall.
As part of this new space agreement, Gen Con’s already large games library space will relocate from the Indiana Convention Center, expanding further in its new location on the LOS field. Game companies such as Co-Sponsor Mayfair Games, Twilight Creations, WizKids Games, and numerous event organizers will host activities in this new space. True Dungeon and Anime & Animation events will return to Lucas Oil Stadium. Free-to-play Kids’ events will have a dedicated space, as well. Further event details will become available in May.
Badges are currently available and registration for ticketed events, including those held at Lucas Oil Stadium, will begin on May 28 at noon (Eastern).
