The Gen Con Exhibit Hall is arguably the most exciting thing about the entire show. Yes, the gaming opportunities are awesome, as are the panels, the cosplayers, and various other things happening around downtown Indy, but for many of us, it’s the Exhibit Hall where we spend most of our time during the weekend. You can see all sorts of new games and try demos at the various vendor booths. You can purchase convention exclusives. You can rummage through bins of dice. You can just hang out and talk with all sorts of industry insiders. Just walking around, you can run into all sorts of people. But it can be a bit daunting without a map. Thankfully, Gen Con has posted their map of the Exhibit Hall for this year’s show. I suggest tattooing it somewhere on your arm you can easily see, so that you’ll always know where your favorite vendor’s booth is (not an actual suggestion).
There’s also a bit about the upcoming release of the Events Catalog that you can check out below the cut.
From the announcement:
IT’S HERE! With more than 400 exhibiting companies, the Gen Con 2015 Exhibit Hall will host the most exciting collection of debuting games, your favorite titles, and gamer gear in Gen Con’s 48-year history.
Along with the Exhibit Hall Map’s debut, the release of the Gen Con Event Catalog is one of the most anticipated days of the gamer year. Good news! It will be live and searchable on Monday, May 11. This will give you approximately one week to explore it and create your 2015 Wish List. Along with the debut of the catalog, you can begin creating your Wish Lists on Monday for the opening of Event Registration on Sunday, May 17 at noon (Eastern).
The Gen Con Events team has reviewed more than 13,000 submitted events, and have found placement for most events.
