First Annual vVv Get-Together: GenCon 2016 Aug 4-7

Recommended Posts

vVv will be having our first annual get-together at next year's GenCon. This event takes place in Indianapolis, IN on August 4th through August 7th. GenCon is a smaller (as compared to PAX or similar events), but growing convention that focuses on all areas of gaming, with large portions of table top, role playing, cosplay, and a smaller video gaming presence. The event takes place at the Indianapolis Convention Center, where there are a number of hotels nearby. The Hyatt is known to be a good location to stay, but you can check google maps for other options close by.

The video gaming portion of GenCon is hosted by eBash. You can find more information on the event here: http://ebash.com/ebash-gencon/

Why GenCon?

  • The location is ideal since it is centrally located in the midwest
  • Indianapolis is a smaller, less-expensive city so those on a budget will be able to afford the trip
  • There are a number of locations near the convention center for really good food:

Am I invited!?

 

Any and all vVv'ers who can attend definitely should attend. Indy is a great city. There's a reason so many sporting events are held there--bars and restaurants galore. I was fortunate enough to get to visit the city for the Michigan/Kentucky '14 Elite Eight game, though that game did end in much sadness on my part. (Screw you, Aaron Harrison.)
