GottaCon 2013 Gaming Convention February 1 to 3, 2013 Tue, 18 September 2012 05:08
After a fourth successful year, GottaCon 2013 is set to take place on February 1st to 3rd, 2013 at the Pearkes Recreation centre in Victoria, BC. The 2012 show saw an increase in attendance which exceeded 1,500 individual attendees and attendance for the 2013 show is expected to continue to grow.

GottaCon is a three-day broad spectrum gaming convention that is held annually on the first weekend in February in Victoria, British Columbia. GottaCon celebrates the science fiction and fantasy genres, covers many related hobbies and offers a one stop experience for the fans and enthusiasts of those genres.

The vision of GottaCon is to host something for everyone including free-play and tournaments in board games, collectible/non-collectible miniatures, collectible trading cards, role-playing games, and electronic gaming as well as demonstrations, contests, information sessions, workshops, a variety of exhibitors.

Our goal is to deliver a high quality and exciting environment that will establish GottaCon as an annual destination that participants will return to for years to come. Our 2013 event, called GottaCon 2013, will be our fifth show. The convention doors open at 5:00pm Friday and do not close until 7:00pm Sunday (around the clock gaming for an entire weekend).

GottaCon will take place at Pearkes Recreation Centre at 3100 Tillicum Rd. with over 24,000 square feet of floor space (for facility details, visit:
