Holiday 2020 Message and Looking Ahead to 2021
As we approach the winter holidays and the end of the (let’s say less-than-ideal) year, we’re looking ahead to the future and know you have some of the same questions that we do about our plans for 2021.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is certain, and that our lives are even more interconnected than ever before. We don’t take for granted the magic of gathering en masse with all of you in Indianapolis each summer, and we can’t wait to do it again. Will that happen this August? In all honesty, we don’t know yet, but we really hope so.
Our goal for the new year is to hold Gen Con 2021 as planned, in person in Indianapolis from August 5-8. We’re working towards that objective with health and safety as our top priority. A variety of factors need to come together for a physical convention to be feasible, and we’re carefully monitoring local and national safety and travel guidelines, health data, resource availability, and the advice of our finest sages, scientists, and sorcerers.
Considering this uncertainty, we’re postponing badge registration and event submission until we have a better idea of what the year will hold. We’ll announce new dates as soon we can, and you should expect more updates from us in the next couple of months. To keep up on the latest news, subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media.
We appreciate your continued support, and we miss you, our Gen Con family all across the world. Please take care of each other and have a safe and happy holiday season!
Your Friends at Gen Con
A special message from our team about Gen Con 2021. Thanks for your continued patience, feedback, and support as we continue to investigate what Gen Con 2021 will look like.
"Thank you for taking the time to complete our recent 2021 interest and feedback surveys. We appreciate your responses and the guidance provided by you and our health and safety experts as we research possibilities for a 2021 show. We are still reading through the thousands of survey replies and working with local authorities, and have not made a definitive decision or set dates for badge, hotel, and event registration at this time.
Thank you for your continued support!
We ask that you please be patient with us as we try to navigate the best options available for our attendees, our staff, and our convention. We will update you with dates and details about Gen Con 2021 as soon as we have further information."
