Just in case you needed some hard numbers to put the size of Gen Con into perspective, Gen Con 2015 has set an all-new attendance record with a unique attendance of 61,423 and a turnstile attendance of 197,695! Since 2010, Gen Con has more than doubled in attendance!
The convention featured more than 400 companies in the vendor hall! That is a MASSIVE amount of games and game related shiny things! No wonder I’m so tired!
And yes, the convention is a profitable endeavor, but they are also very generous with a number of fundraising activities for charity. This year, Gen Con’s raised $38,500 for the Julian Center, an organization dedicated to prevention and support for those effected by domestic violence.
It’s nice to see a direct benefit for the community from such an awesome convention.
Will you be planning to be part of the record breaking trends in Gen Con’s attendance next year?
