About Gen Con LLC

Gen Con LLC produces Gen Con, the largest and longest-running annual event devoted to tabletop gaming culture in North America. The convention, which began in 1968 in Lake Geneva, WI, attracts 70,000 attendees and 500 exhibiting companies each year. During the convention, attendees participate in over 19,000 ticketed events representing a wide array of board games, card games, roleplaying games, seminars, entertainment events, and more. Gen Con takes place each August in the Indiana Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium, and surrounding hotels in Indianapolis, IN.

At the heart of Gen Con is a custom management system encompassing a website and mobile applications for IOS and Android. The Gen Con development team builds, maintains and supports this system with an eye focused on the upcoming convention. We work remotely, have an agile mindset, and are a nimble group of passionate IT professionals who enjoy tackling business problems with technology and code.

On any given day, we could be building out a new solution for electronic ticketing, fixing a bug in our exhibitor management system, migrating data to a new NoSQL solution, or updating interfaces for third-party connectivity. Our platform is stable, our list of user stories is long, and our next convention is on the horizon. We love bringing gamers together to experience the Best Four Days in Gaming!
