    Default GenCon 2010 - Entrepreneur's Row

    Looks like a cheaper way for gaming startups to get into Gen Con 2010. News release from today:

    Exhibitor Registration Begins for Gen Con 2010

    SEATTLE (December 2, 2009) Gen Con LLC announces that it has opened the
    official exhibitor registration process for Gen Con Indy 2010. With nearly
    100 companies pre-registering at Indy 2009 for 2010, the show is off to a
    tremendous start. Gen Con is committed to help the industry thrive. It is
    excited to announce a new addition to the exhibit hall, Entrepreneurs¹
    Avenue, which will help accomplish this goal.

    In its 43rd year, Gen Con is focused on continuing to create fun and edgy
    gaming experiences with the returning exhibitors, while supporting new
    business and welcoming back companies who have not exhibited in the past few
    years. In all, Gen Con looks to again host over 270 exhibitors at Gen Con
    Indy 2010 which will take place at the Indiana Convention Center from August
    5-8, 2010.

    ³Gen Con Indy 2009 was an amazing show both for attendees and exhibitors,²
    said Scott Elliott, senior director of sales for Gen Con LLC, ³but some
    smaller companies couldn¹t exhibit due to the tough 2009 economy. Gen Con is
    committed to small publishers and to entrepreneurs with game, science
    fiction and fantasy centric businesses. Entrepreneurs¹ Avenue offers great
    value to support these businesses.²

    The entrepreneurial rate will be offered to any exhibitor who has not
    exhibited since before 2007 or any exhibitor who has never exhibited with
    Gen Con in the past. Exhibitors who come in under this rate will be allowed
    to purchase only one 10x10 standard booth and be placed in Entrepreneur¹s
    Avenue. Space in this area is limited, and will be filled on a
    first-come-first-served basis.

    New fellowship
    In order to reward superior marketing of their presences at Gen Con Indy,
    Gen Con LLC will award a marketing fellowship to six Entrepreneurs¹ Avenue
    exhibitors. Business recipients of this fellowship will receive a
    complimentary booth upgrade from a 100 square foot booth to a 200 square
    foot end cap booth in Entrepreneur¹s Avenue, and will be featured in a
    special area of the Gen Con Indy 2010 program book. In order to apply for
    the Gen Con Marketing Fellowship, eligible exhibitors must submit their Gen
    Con Indy 2010 exhibitor application. Gen Con will then contact eligible
    candidates by email and provide the Gen Con Marketing Fellowship application
    documents. Gen Con will announce fellowship recipients in March 2010. For
    further details on this marketing fellowship, please email
    exhibitors@gencon.com.

    I doubt even Turbine knows if it will attend GenCon this year. I would think it would be a great place to sign up people for Free 2 Play accounts and demo the game, but ???
