From their announcement:
Geek Nation Tours is proud to announce that it will be partnering up with one of the largest and most prestigious gaming conventions in the world. That’s right – we are headed off to Gen Con Indianapolis 2012!
This year is Gen Con’s forty-fifth anniversary so it is sure to be very special indeed. Gen Con has a long history of offering the very best in gaming conventions. Dive into every type of gaming imaginable - roleplaying games, card games, boardgames, tabletop games and computer games, just to mention just a few. They even have Geek Speed Dating and a marathon..... Game to your heart’s content with old friends or the new ones you will meet.
Geek Nation Tours takes pride in getting people of like minds together to experience the finest in geeky events and our Gen Con tour will be no exception. Join us each night – if your gaming schedule allows – as we get together to swap Gen Con war stories and pass on great ideas for the next day’s adventures. Not only that, you’ll be surrounded by a large and welcoming gaming community so you’ll have an opportunity to meet new friends and the time to discuss all those geeky things that you love.
Want to do some shopping or see what’s new in the gaming world? Are you interested in finding out about all the upcoming releases for the next year? Perhaps you would like to mingle with celebrities from the gaming world and see what they are working on. Maybe you want to pit your gaming skills against the best in the world or perhaps try out a few games that you have always wondered about. Gen Con is the best place in the world to do all these things. There will also plenty of time to get some photos with cool Cosplay people or even wear a costume yourself!
We will also be hosting our traditional “Welcome and How to Get the Best out of Your Gen Con” dinner on this tour. This year we will be joined by the crew of the D6 Generation Podcast (Gen Con veterans) as they give us tips on how to best experience our convention. Further, we are proud to announce we will be joined by Megan Culver (Director of Gen Con Marketing), who will not only be giving us advice on all things Gen Con but she will be handing out our badges and event tickets as well! That’s right, no ticket pickup lines and no delivery costs for any items that are pre-registered for by June 30th! Our welcome dinners are always informative and loads of fun. They are great for newbies and veterans alike - you are sure to leave with a smile on your face, a full belly and all the information necessary to get the most out of your Gen Con experience.
Even before we arrive in Indianapolis, Geek Nation Tours will endeavour to make the Gen Con experience exceptional…
While your 4-day Gen Con badge is included in the tour package, you will still have to register for events. To that end, we will be arranging a pre-registration conference call via Skype to help expedite the registration process. Are you slightly overwhelmed by the registration procedure? Not sure what to register for when the cart opens at the end of January? Worried that you might be missing the very best in seminars or gaming opportunities? Let Geek Nation Tours ease your mind. We will be joined by both the D6 Generation crew and Megan Culver for our Pre-Registration Conference call, which will take place January 10, 2012.
Join us for “The Best Four Days of Gaming”!
