Last I heard from AEG was they were planning to go but that it could change.

Kenzer is going - maybe someone could convince Jolly to run Great Space Race and Aces and Eights.

From GC's own page on exhibitors.

Gen Con 2021

We are not currently accepting applications for 2021, however if spaces open up, we can notify you.


Even groups running events, only the large premiere groups like TD were contacted directly, others had to contact GC and ask for permission to submit events. And of those, they were told just because they could submit events doesn't mean they will have space. It still depends on distancing rules.

I reached out to AEG and they said they had not decided yet and would announce at a later time.

Edit when asked “will you be at gencon 2021” the response was “ We will do an official announcement soon.”

With so many large exhibitors backing out in the last week (not to mention TD relinquishing a good chunk of the exhibit hall), they are now confirming the companies/groups that are taking those slots. So, yes, they probably know a healthy amount of the groups attending, but they probably don't know all of them yet.

Exhibitor friends that I know personally have already had the opportunity to fully commit to attending. They've rolled-over their booth fees and even locked in housing through the GenCon block.

Boardgametables.com will be there.

I’ve been contacting companies and encouraging them to attend, letting them know I will be there. I’m sure I am making a difference.

Gooey Cube was given the opportunity to upsize their booth for this year only. And we sure will be there. I feel as much as it sucks for a lot of people the opportunity for our little company to get noticed is a blessing.
