Industry Insider Requests for Consideration Now Open
Each year, Gen Con offers an Industry Insider program that features curated seminars, workshops, and panels about the gaming industry. Featured Presenters, selected by an Industry Insider panel, discuss hot topics, and the best part is that these events are free and open to any Gen Con 2016 attendee!
Are you a member of the game industry and interested in hosting one of these seminars? Submissions are now open for the program. You can apply to participate at this Industry Insider page on gencon.com. The Industry Insider panel will review all applications received by midnight (Eastern) on Monday, April 11, so don’t delay! They will choose applicants as Featured Presenters for the program as space allows. For more information, including program benefits, you can find out more at the Industry Insider page.
