Event Host Policy Updated for 2017
The Event Host Policy has been updated for 2017. Please review the new document and contact us with any questions.
The biggest changes to be aware of are that badge refunds for GMs will be handled automatically before fulfillment begins (badges assigned after that are unchanged), requests (for badges, hotels, special requests, etc.) will be made via web form instead of simply email, and late events submitted within a month of the convention will most likely not be reviewed or placed without special prior arrangement.
Event Submission Begins January 22
You will be able to submit your event plans for Gen Con 50 next month, so start getting your details together. Event submission should function the same as it as in the past, but remember: if you have any questions about the process or have an event idea that doesn't quite seem to fit, just email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about it.
Remember: your historical event data is available in your EO/GM Dashboard. Just change the year in the drop-down menu at the right and you can confirm your attendance numbers from lsat year (or earlier). Base your plan for this year on reasonable growth from previous years. Wishlist data from 2016 is also available upon request, and can help judge overall demand for potential growth.
Basic attendance analysis has also been completed for all groups and companies with dedicated event hall space. We will be following up with many groups to confirm plans for this coming year, but if you have any questions about your own hourly attendance or other numbers, let us know and we can review them with you.
