GenCon 2015

You might think it's a bit early to start thinking of GenCon--unless you work for GenCon, who probably starts working on the next GenCon the day or so after the last one ends--but there are a couple of important dates just around the corner and some important notices.

First off, this year GenCon is a bit earlier than before, running from (Thur) July 30 to (Sun) Aug 2. If it's your first trip to the con, consider getting on site that Wed. Each year more and more official and unofficial events keep popping up the day prior to the actual con.

Along with the change in dates for the actual con, a couple of other dates have moved up. Badge registration starts on Friday January 23 and Hotel Booking starts Sun January 25 at noon. The Hotel Booking date is very important because if you want to get a room close to the Con (1-2) blocks, you need to get in the queue as fast as possible. Last year, the prime locations all booked up in less than 20 minutes.

GenCon promises more information shortly on changes to the Hotel Reg procedure this year (probably due to overwhelming complaints about the last year), so stay tuned.

Oh, and one other date change. If you want to submit an event for consideration, you can start doing that NOW! So what are you waiting for? Head over and submit an event to help make GenCon 2015 even better than last year.
