Wow! I wonder what other events beside TD will make the move?
i wonder how cool that will be.
Neat. I never knew that there was an underground pedestrian tunnel.
I think this will only mean good things !
I don't believe that anything I personally do will be moved over there, but.. I'm very excited about the news all the same !
I don't know yet what else will be over there, but I do know there are two very large Exhibit Halls over there. I'm excited for us to get all this new space!
Hopefully there will be full scale games of Blood Bowl in the stadium, but that seems both obvious and unlikely.
Otherwise I'd like to host some flag foot ball events. :)
This sounds awesome and such!
I'm hoping for a 65,000 person Killer Breakfast held in the stadium.
I'm wondering if this means that there will be an even BIGGER dealer hall!
The biggest foam weapon battle we will ever see!
Makes me wonder if the miniatures games are going to stay where they are or end up in LOS.
While I have no inside info, I doubt that miniature games are moving to the stadium.
The Gen Con announcement indicated that they were moving events into the stadium exhibition space. The True Dungeon announcement, indicated that they are moving into the only 2 exhibit hall spaces that exist in the Stadium. The Stadium exhibit hall space is a combined 44,000 sq ft, which is equivilant to what True Dungeon moved out of (Hall A is 44,400 sq ft.).
If you looked at the images from the proposed 2016 exhibit hall (there is a comparison of 2015 and 2016 circulating on the internet), you will see that the exhibit hall is adding Hall F, but loosing Hall K, which is still a net in increase of 13,400 sq ft of Exhibit Hall space. I think it is a safe assumption with the exhibit hall expanding in to Hall F, True Dungeon moves out of Hall A and in to the equivilant amount of space in Stadium Exhibition space, then all the other event space merely "slides down" to occupy Halls A thru E.
There are also a series of meeting rooms in the Stadium on the exhibition level near the new True Dungeon space. However, the are smaller rooms whose combied total square footage is 12,700 sq ft.
I am hoping TD does not raise it's prices again, so far every year they have raised $4.
