Gen Con 50 will increase its presence within Lucas Oil Stadium (LOS), adding the same play field used by the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. This expansion adds to Gen Con’s footprint which includes the Indiana Convention Center (ICC), numerous participating hotels, and existing convention and meeting spaces within Lucas Oil Stadium.
As part of this new space agreement, Gen Con’s already large Games Library & Pick-up Play space will relocate from the ICC, expanding further in its new location on the LOS field. This area will offer a new “weekend pass” event ticket option, while supplies last.
Game companies such as Gen Con 50 Co-Sponsor Mayfair Games, Twilight Creations, WizKids Games, and numerous event organizers will host activities on the field. A dedicated, free-to-play Kids’ events space will launch in LOS on the field level, as well. True Dungeon and Anime & Animation events will return to Lucas Oil Stadium’s convention and meeting spaces.
To commemorate 2017’s historic Gen Con 50, the convention will create a showcase area on the LOS field that honors the first Gen Con, held in the 1967. In this space, attendees will get to see an homage construction of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin’s Horticultural Hall, located right on the field. Football fans will be happy to note that this area will be located right on the 50-yard line of LOS. This space will include gaming artifacts and tributes to the early Gen Con events. Attendees will have an opportunity to take their picture with the tribute façade of the Horticultural Hall, as well as participate in guided tours of the museum experience. And of course, there will be games to play.
The Gen Con team hopes that you experience 50 years of gaming in one day! Further information about additional Gen Con 50 programming at Lucas OIl Stadium and the ICC will become available in the coming weeks.
