If you’re on the fence about heading to Gen Con this year, there are a couple of upcoming deadlines to keep in mind. Event Submission – a big deadline for exhibitors – ends this Friday, March 20th, and Event Registration will begin (and rapidly fill, undoubtedly) on April 19th. Now that Gen Con LLC has sorted out its restructuring, the Lucasfilm lawsuit, and fended off the takeover attempt, the hope is that more focus will be put on making the “Best Four Days of Gaming” better than ever. Refer to the press release below for more info.
