GenCon canceled its annual convention last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The convention organizers have promised to move forward this year, albeit with safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It will be available in a hybrid format, with the online and in-person conventions running events at the same time.
GenCon is North America’s largest gaming convention, typically attracting crowds of thousands of enthusiastic gamers. Dozens of companies, ranging from industry giants to small mom-and-pop shops show up to announce, demonstrate, and sell their products. Several large companies and sponsors, such as Paizo Publishing, will not be participating in-person at this year’s GenCon celebrations. One can read about the Indiana Convention Center’s efforts to keep attendees safe on their official website. This year’s GenCon celebrations will run from September 16-19.
