Mayfair Games Extends Sponsorship Agreement with Gen Con Through 2017Feb 05, 2014
Mayfair Games is pleased to announce they have extended sponsorship agreement with Gen Con through 2017!
Mayfair Games is a world leader in the hobby board game industry and has been a major sponsor of Gen Con Indy since 2011.
“Whether teaming with our charity partners, running record-breaking events, or delivering a world-class Exhibit Hall experience, Mayfair Games has taken every opportunity to amplify the excitement of Gen Con,” said Adrian Swartout, CEO of Gen Con LLC. “Given their amazing performance as Co-Sponsors during the prior three years, we know that they will be an integral part in our ramp up to Gen Con 50, taking place in 2017.”
Last year was one of the finest collaborations between Mayfair Games and the “Best Four Days in Gaming” yet. Throughout Gen Con 2013 Mayfair held numerous groundbreaking events. Such as the Warp Speed Tournament, where the winning three faced off against Wil Wheaton in a challenging charity Star Trek Catan™ game. With player events involving nine mammoth floor games, thirteen giant games and a nightly “Git-together” providing gamers entertainment value. Most dramatic of all though was The Big Game™, where the Official Guinness World Record® for most players in a single Settlers of Catan® game was established at 922 players.
This is the power of Mayfair Games and Gen Con working together and this agreement will set the stage for future Gen Con conventions to be even bigger and better.
