Gen Con, True Dungeon to Expand into Lucas Oil Stadium
Gen Con is excited to announce that it has reached an agreement to expand its events space into Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium for next year's convention. As part of this expansion, Gen Con will move several large events into the stadium’s exhibition space, including the wildly popular True Dungeon events.
“Expansion into Lucas Oil Stadium is another exciting step forward for Gen Con,” said Adrian Swartout, Gen Con CEO/Owner. “Gen Con has grown to host nearly 200,000 turnstile attendees, and it is evident that we have to accelerate our growth plans to meet attendee, exhibitor, and event organizer demand. Expansion into Lucas Oil Stadium allows Gen Con to keep offering more gaming, exhibition, and entertainment options each year.”
A large-scale, life-size gaming experience, True Dungeon creates an immersive environment where players can solve puzzles and battle giant monsters. Attendees will have easy access to True Dungeon events through a corridor that directly connects the Indiana Convention Center to Lucas Oil Stadium. True Dungeon’s 2016 event will feature an expedition through lava caverns and a mission across an underground city. Attendees can learn more here.
“We are very excited to offer an improved coaching and adventure experience with our new location,” said Jeff Martin, creator of True Dungeon.
Gen Con will announce additional events hosted in Lucas Oil Stadium in the coming months. Last year, Gen Con had record numbers of events (14,000+), exhibitors (400+), and unique attendees (61,000+).
Lucas Oil Stadium is a state-of-the-art retractable roof, multi-purpose facility seating over 67,000 fans while featuring spectacular views of the downtown Indianapolis skyline. Opened in 2008 as the home of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, this facility already boasts an impressive resume having been named the 2009 Sports Facility of the Year by Street and Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal. Lucas Oil Stadium was the site of Super Bowl XLVI, the 2011-2015 Big Ten Football Championship Games and the NCAA Men’s Final Four Basketball Championship again in 2015 after first hosting this event in 2010.
