GenCon 4-day badges are sold out 6 years 9 months ago #1

http://www.gencon.com/press/4daysellout

From the press release:

Gen Con, the largest and longest-running hobby gaming convention in North America, has announced a sellout of 4-Day badges for Gen Con 50, its historic 50th convention to be held August 17-20. Sales of single-day badges (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Family Fun) will continue at gencon.com, though supplies are limited. The company urges those interested in attending to purchase these badges soon, as single-day badges also are expected to reach a sellout.

Due to these expected sellouts, Gen Con will not offer on-site badge sales at Gen Con 50. Any remaining attendee-type badges will be available for sale at gencon.com with will call pick-up. As in prior years, Gen Con will offer 24-hour will call, starting at noon on Wednesday, August 16 and staying open throughout the entire convention. The will call area also will expand to expedite the packet pick-up process.

“Though 4-Day badges have sold out for Gen Con 50 there are still many opportunities to attend the convention and take part in the celebration,” said Adrian Swartout, CEO/Owner of Gen Con LLC. “Family Fun Day badges provide a great opportunity for visitors who wish to sample the show for the first time. Anyone still interested in attending Gen Con 50 should purchase their badges soon.”

Family Fun Day, held on Sunday, August 20, allows a family of four to attend for $45. Children ages 8-and-under are free to attend any day of Gen Con with a child wristband.

Gen Con has capped Trade Day and some individual badge types previously in Indianapolis, but has never limited its 4-Day or single-day badge sales.

Que the "GenCon is getting too big discussion" in 3. 2. 1...

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir

That's pretty amazing, I'm very interested to find out what that sell-out number for badges was.

This might give more motivation for GENCON to create a second GENCON event, either in Indy or elsewhere.

Me too.


I'm also wondering if they'll ever expand it to 5 days. There is just so much to see. Plus is would give us another days worth of TD slots (in theory) .

Exactly why GC will want TD to move ( again)
Hopefully I am wrong but I doubt it

Yeah .. we show up on Tuesday too .. but there is a lot of Arcanum stuff that goes on Wed.

I'm wondering when Peter will move GC to Chicago. It has outgrown Indy .. it outgrew Indy 2-3 years ago.

I really doubt GENCON will leave, it's a huge success in Indy. There's no guarantee everyone will make the move to a new city if it moves. I think it's much more likely that they would leave it here and hold a second one in Chicago.

So that everyone can have the thrill of not being in a hotel within walking distance.
