FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
INDIANAPOLIS (July 24, 2019) — Gen Con, the largest and longest-running tabletop gaming convention in North America, in partnership with official merchandising partner OffWorld Designs Inc., announces expanded official merchandise offerings, introducing a line of tabletop-gaming lifestyle apparel and accessories to complement its convention souvenir merchandise.
“Tabletop gaming is more than just the enjoyable hobby that draws so many loyal fans to Indianapolis each year for our show.

Our new items are comfortable and fashion-conscious enough for year-round, all-occasion wear, while showing off our gamer-geek pride!”
