GenCon wants your feedback

Post by Ravion Hawk » Tue Mar 31, 2015 2:18 pm

With recent events in Indiana, GenCon has issued a letter to the attendees outlining their stance on the issue and would like feedback from attendees about their experience with GenCon 2015 no matter if the experience was good or bad.

In short, GenCon is contracted until 2020 to be in Indianapolis, IN. Discussions on whether to stay in Indiana or to move the convention elsewhere have already begun.

Contact information is contained in the linked PDF which includes phone and e-mail contact.

http://files.gencon.com/Letter_to_Attendees.pdf

Please be aware that many companies have already announced that they are pulling out of Indiana and GenCon attendees may even notice some company booths may not make an appearance at the convention.

I am leaving this open for discussion for now but if this gets toxic, offending messages WILL BE deleted and the topic locked.

What would be VERY appreciated is if anyone who catches wind that a booth will not be showing up at GenCon 2015 to please post it and a link to the annoucment.

Thank you all for reading and if you are attending GenCon 2015, please give GenCon your feedback.

There seems to be some scrambling by the "powers that be" in Indiana to alleviate the situation, so this all may be moot at some point.

I am hoping that a solution can be found.

The situation in Indiana is beyond ridiculous. The rest of this post has been deleted.
