WHAT IS GAMECON?

For almost 10 years GamerCon has been a staple in San Diego's summertime convention scene. Bringing both sides of gaming together GamerCon is a convention designed by Gamers for Gamers. Just like the games themselves no two gamers are the same, and we strive to create the perfect gaming experience to bring our community together. Whether you enjoy playing trading card games, have a huge collection of classic board games, are a console gamer, an avid adventurer in role-playing games, a PC gamer, or a miniatures gamer GamerCon has something for you. GamerCon is also a great place to come and check out new titles, or even test your own gaming ideas!

Art and design are a huge part of gaming. GamerCon is unique in its efforts to incorporate the arts into the spirit of our convention. From concept art, character design, 3D animation, illustration, painting and layout design; to the local artists, musicians, geek theatre and short film makers. GamerCon strives to be a place where people come together to celebrate art inspired by gaming. With our Art Gallery, Concert Series, Theatre Production and Industry panels, we at GamerCon strive to have something there for everyone, no matter what type of gaming enthusiast people are.
