Gen Con closes trade registrations

Published: July 27, 2015
The Gen Con annual game convention, held July 30-Aug. 2 in Indianapolis, announced it has closed registrations for its Retailer Trade Day on July 29.

"We decided to halt sales after we surpassed approximately 500 badges sold," says Gen Con senior marketing communications manager Jake Theis. "With press attendees, we anticipate around 525 Trade Day attendees. It will be about 100 more than last year and approximately 200 more passes sold than in 2013."

Gen Con’s trade day features training to engage educators, librarians and retailers, provides free games and lesson plans from publishers, and grants early access to the exhibit hall on the morning of July 30.
