Gen Con 2022 awaits

The Gen Con 2022 dates - 4 - 7 August - will bring hundreds of publishers, artists and vendors, as well as thousands of gaming enthusiasts to Indiana Convention Center (ICC) for the traditional annual celebration of tabletop gaming culture. The Gen Con convention is the largest event of its kind in North America. After a fully digital edition in 2020 and a hybrid one in 2021, the community is awaiting the four special days in Indiana and the exciting event catalog of the next Gen Con.

Major brands and recently founded companies will choose Gen Con 2022 to release their new board games, card games and roleplaying games. At the Gen Con Art Show prominent artists and new talents will present their works covering everything from fantasy and sci-fi to comics and horror. The Authors' Avenue in the Exhibit Hall is where attendees will meet independent authors and small press publishers of fiction in the most beloved genres by the gaming community.

The Trade Day will feature training and networking opportunities with two main directions. Retailers will find content revolving around business and marketing, while educators and librarians will be offered gaming strategies in the curriculum and gamification techniques for the library.
