Has it been announced as to when the events listings will be available to review?
Event Registration is May 19, so figure about 2 weeks before, which seems to be the norm each year.
It will probably be our Cinco de Mayo gift from Gen Con.
About two weeks before - I recommend using the 3rd party databases to build your wish list and calendar during that time.
When the event list drops how will we know? Where on this site should we look? Is there a way to get an email notification if it dripping with a link to it?
The site does not support uploading a spreadsheet. You will need to enter them one at a time. However, you can do this before the 19th using the Wish List feature. On the 19th you will click "Process wish list" and the system will attempt to put those tickets into your shopping cart if they are still available.
You can put overlapping events on your wishlist. The first one successfully obtained will block out your schedule for that time, so you will not get the overlapping events that are further down your list.
It will likely be all over their social media, and if you're subscribed to their newsletter, they should announce it there.
It's not like Gen Con wants to keep their event list a big secret or anything.
The list will go up a few weeks before Event Reg opens on May 19. No exact date for that.
We encourage you to subscribe to our email on on your "MY Profile" page if you want up to the date information on all things Gen Con.

By setting up a Google Calendar you can share with your friends and you get an easy view of your days.
Just to be clear...I can check out events that will be listed 2 weeks before they become available to purchase/book? I'm a first timer on their own so a bit of pre information is always helpful and this way I don't have to randomly choose what an event is n hope I like it?
Yes the list of events will come out before you can buy them. You would put the ones you want on your wish list. and then hope when they go live you can get them.
I'll second that. My #1 pick was gone very fast, but about a month later someone dropped out and I snagged my way in.
The gencon eventdb (or was it highprogrammer), lists the changes 3x / day. Watch those lists like a hawk
Make sure that if you are working on your wish list and submit it and get what you want you have about 1 hour to pay for your tickets otherwise they go back to the pool.
Our first year I sent in our wish list and got 80% of what we wanted. I was waiting for a couple people to confirm that is what they wanted and 1 hour passed with out activity and everything went back to the pool and I had to resubmit and we lost 50% of what we had originally gotten.
