As announced earlier today via media release, Gen Con has reached an agreement with Paizo, Inc, on a new multi-year Co-Sponsorship agreement. Paizo first joined Gen Con as a Co-Sponsor in 2013 with a three-year agreement. As part of this multi-year Co-Sponsor partnership, Paizo features an increased Exhibit Hall presence, more on-site marketing and branding, and the entire Sagamore Ballroom dedicated to Pathfinder events. This current Co-Sponsorship agreement will last through both Gen Con 50 and Gen Con 2018. “Our team is pleased to see Paizo return as a Co-Sponsor,” said Adrian Swartout, CEO/Owner of Gen Con. “It has been amazing to watch their explosive growth over the past several years, and their Pathfinder gaming events are among the most popular and most attended yearly. With more than 14,000 events to choose from at Gen Con, that is quite the accomplishment!” To read more about this new agreement, including a quote from Paizo Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Erik Mona, please check out the media release.
