Largest gaming convention Gen Con to move to Lucas Oil in 2016
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 4, 2015)— Gen Con is getting a much bigger venue—Lucas Oil Stadium!
The largest gaming convention will be in the football stadium for its 2016 convention.
“Expansion into Lucas Oil Stadium is another exciting step forward for Gen Con,” said Adrian Swartout, Gen Con CEO/Owner. “Gen Con has grown to host nearly 200,000 turnstile attendees, and it is evident that we have to accelerate our growth plans to meet attendee, exhibitor, and event organizer demand. Expansion into Lucas Oil Stadium allows Gen Con to keep offering more gaming, exhibition, and entertainment options each year.”
As part of the move, Gen Con will move several large events to the stadium, including the True Dungeon events. The True Dungeon is a life-size gaming event that allows players to solve puzzles and battle giant monsters.
“We are very excited to offer an improved coaching and adventure experience with our new location,” said Jeff Martin, creator of True Dungeon.
Gen Con will announce additional events hosted in Lucas Oil Stadium in the coming months ahead of the 49th convention on August 4-7.
Last year, Gen Con had a record number of events and exhibitors and attracted more than 61,000 visitors.
