Gen Con SoCal Canceled

Gen Con cancels California convention.

Gen Con organizers announced that its southern California convention has been canceled. A released statement reasoned that attendance concerns, reduced exhibitor support and competing shows were all causes for the cancellation.

Peter D. Adkison, CEO of Gen Con, said, "Putting an end to our Gen Con So Cal show was in no way an easy decision to make. But at the end of the day, it became apparent to us that the show was not likely to grow and expand without immense effort and expense. With our other shows doing so well, it made sense to focus our energy and talent on making those the best shows they can be."
