Has someone put together a .pdf or other document showing a map of the area and indicating major event locations?  Thank you.

There is a map app on the Gen Con mobile site that does a fair job of showing locations. Otherwise, if you have a pdf of the program book from Gen Con 50, it is full of maps.

You can scroll around and zoom in for room names/numbers. Last year it labeled every table, but those aren't up yet for 2018.

Or if you want something printable, they start on page 8 of

Just be aware of the fact that this map is oriented opposite of a normal map. North is at the bottom and South is at the top.

ICCLOS.com has maps of the convention center and Lucas Oil Stadium also, they are oriented North on top and South on bottom.

Anyone know the reason why the maps are upside down? I remember being so confused for Gen Con 2016, our first year.

Ick.  Thanks for noting this.  Seems like a poor design.

Apparently people prefer an indoor map with the top to be the way you're walking, so the exhibit hall entrances are put at the bottom. And all Gen Con maps follow suit for consistency.

I've often felt the "South at the top" map orientation was odd myself.

Interestingly, those maps are oriented North.
