Gameacon stands for Game Arts Conference. It was created to help artists in game creation to thrive by providing a space for them to showcase new work and give them to the ability to reach an audience who craves to see their work. There are other festivals, but they are corporate, in big cities, and far away where it is expensive to stay, eat and get around. This festival is grass roots so as to foster those independent, risk-takers who will be the new voices in game creation. Of course, no gaming festival would be complete without tournaments, hangout rooms, board games and awesome cosplay parties.

We are looking for exhibitors who want to take part in this event. Of course we will be seeking out large companies as sponsors, but at the core are the developers and their work. This can be an incredible opportunity to learn from each other, show your stuff to fans, and meet some industry leaders. If you have something you feel you can contribute to the fans or exhibitors, we have many rooms for breakouts and panel discussions and would love for you to sign up to talk.
Of course we will welcome gaming fans who want to experience new games, interact and learn from their creators, meet others who share their passion for gaming; and to celebrate the creativity and artistry that goes into development by awarding the most awesome game creators of 2015.
Gameacon is happening in Atlantic City, New Jersey (US), central to and within driving distance of New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC. It is easily accessible by car, train and airplane (they have their own international airport). The whole city is geared towards making you comfortable. Our venue is the Tropicana Casino Resort where you can stay, hang, eat, and play all under a single roof. There are plenty of hotel rooms, ample and affordable parking, many varied restaurants (so you won't have to wait on an endless line for an overpriced hot dog or bottle of water), bars, clubs, and even an Imax movie theater. You can even try your luck at gambling.
