After a sixth successful year, GottaCon 2015 is set to take place on February 27th to March 1st, 2015 at the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria, BC. The 2014 show saw an incredible increase in attendance which exceeded 3,000 individual attendees and attendance for the 2015 show is expected to continue to grow.

Submit a Panel or Workshop for GottaCon 2015 Fri, 10 October 2014 00:32
While panels are returning, we are tweaking a few things, including a focus on DIY workshops. While some panels may consist of some of your old favourites, for 2015 we really want to focus on interactive workshops (Kickstarter, games creation, world creation, DIY cosplay, model painting, etc.) and authors/writing. We are also seeking a diverse group of guests. Once again we are accepting your ideas for panels and workshops.

To get all the details on panels and workshops and how to submit your ideas your suggestions please visit our website.

Have you bought your GottaCon weekend pass yet? Online ticket sales are open until February 17, after which the discount price ends and remaining tickets will be available at the door. Buy your tickets here: http://www.gottacon.com/registration-ticket-sales/

I am very excited about our line-up of events this year – for board games we increased the number of events, the number of tournaments, the number of free-play tables.

You can see our major board game event details here: http://www.gottacon.com/major-board-game-events/ and we have some great prizes from our sponsors.
To get an idea of the regular board game events you can see a list (as of Jan 4 2015) here: http://www.gottacon.com/event-listing-2/
Maybe you just want to sign out a game from our library and play that? Our library list is available here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cscs3wMKiypqzGZbRlUc z8Lv5FtGItdtVyilg_CuzLI
