With event registration for Gen Con 2014 just one week away, I think it’s time for us to talk about something quite exciting that’ll be taking place at the convention this year. After some careful planning and with the help of the Gen Con staff, we’re happy to announce the Initiative : Tabletop Meet & Greet 2014! Last year during Gen Con we held a somewhat informal meetup where we hung out in a hotel lobby and talked about games. This year things will be a bit different, and we’re totally stoked!
During Gen Con 2014 we will be hosting an official event that attendees can sign up for. It will be a seminar where we talk about what it’s like to do what we do and answer questions about the gaming industry. While the details are still being worked out, here’s a small breakdown of what we’re wanting to cover:
- The origins of I:T
- Our relationships with publishers
- What our work consists of
- The risks and rewards of being journalists in the gaming industry
- The future of I:T
As with other seminars, our event will be completely free of charge. For those who attend we’ll have free swag to enjoy, including a board game giveaway! We’re really looking forward to making this a great event, and we are excited to meet with and talk to our readers and those interested in being a part of the gaming industry. We’ve got some big things in store for I:T, and this is just the beginning.
When event registration begins, you can look for our seminar by searching by the event ID: SEM1454257. The Meet & Greet will take place in the Crowne Plaza hotel, room Pennsylvania Station A on Friday, August 15th at 8PM. We can’t wait for the convention or to see you all there this year! We’ll post more details on the event as we get closer to the con, so stick around!
