GenCon 2016 for librarians


GenCon is the largest convention for tabletop gaming in all of North America. It has been held in Indianapolis since 2003 and attracts approximately 60,000 attendees.  This year, GenCon will be held August 4-7, 2016 at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

Many libraries are keen to learn more about tabletop gaming and to incorporate this increasingly popular activity in their library programming. In order to accommodate interested libraries, GenCon will hold a special Trade Day on Wednesday August 3, 2016.  Trade Day will provide “hands-on training to educators, librarians and experienced retailers.”  In order to obtain a Trade Day badge, librarians will need to provide proof of employment.  Library Education Units are available to those who attend.
