TOPIC: Gen Con's 5 year contract with Indy

Gen Con's 5 year contract with Indy 6 years 9 months ago #1

An evergreen topic on these forums is the question of when is GENCON going to move from Indy.

Below is a link from GENCON's website on this topic. Basically GENCON signed an extension in Dec of 2016 to add one more year to the existing contract (which now expires in 2021). And they expressed their intention to annually add one more year to the contract.

This actually gives GENCON a strong position of negotiating with the convention center. Every year they can get their issues resolved before they sign on for another year.

So perhaps this will put this topic to rest for a while.

As a 22 year straight GC vet,
Let me say.
They are best to stay put.
In the midwest they can't beat Indy.

Milwaukee,Wi
Been there and done that.
Very old and lame CS, and no love from the
City.
Also GHC is in Madison now,
Hey they might grow
To something cool.

Illinois, I have set up events there before
The state is a super pain to deal with
And they Tax everything to the max.

Ohio already running Origins.

Michigan not central enough and cobohall
Is so old.

There you have it, indy it is.

Dont mind me, just stopping in to say Iowa is pretty fine this time of year. All in all though it would be a hard fit to find another city to host a con this big. There are a lot of considerations to make and I think indy fits pretty well: with the new hotel developments going on downtown the housing situation should improve soon.
