Gen Con has announced its plans for Gen Con Trade Day 2021, which will host its retailer programming in conjunction with Alliance Game Distributors’ Alliance Open House.  Gen Con Trade Day will be held on two days this year, on Wednesday, September 15 for retailers, and on Saturday, September 18 for librarians and educators.  The librarian and educator track will be more limited than in years past, with about 10 events.

Alliance Game Distributors normally hosts its Alliance Open House in Fort Wayne, Indiana around the same time as the rescheduled Gen Con in September.  This year, Alliance will expand its programming in association with Gen con Trade Day, emphasizing sales opportunities and hosting publisher seminars.

Tickets for Gen Con Trade Day are $135, and also include a four-day pass to Gen Con.  All individual events will be electronically ticketed.  Documentation of qualifications to attend (attendance is limited to retailers, librarians, educators, and graduate students) will be required for attendees.
