Gen Con Badge Registration Opens Today

Gen Con 2021

A limited number of 4-Day and single-day badges for Gen Con Indy 2021 are on sale today at noon Eastern. The convention was rescheduled to September 16-19, 2021, and will proceed with a hybrid format combining three concurrent events to offer a flexible range of opportunities for participation: a reduced-capacity Gen Con Indy in-person at the Indiana Convention Center, Gen Con Online livestreaming, and gaming events, and Pop-Up Gen Con retail activations at local games stores.

In-person attendance will be capped to comply with local, state, and national public-health and safety guidelines, and 4-Day badges are anticipated to sell out quickly. Once they do, no further 4-Day badges will be offered this year, but additional inventory of single-day badges may become available based on changing health and safety guidelines.

All attendees who have rolled over their badge from 2020 are guaranteed a badge and have had their badges converted to 2021 on their accounts automatically, unless they request by email to by June 25 to roll their badge forward again to 2022.

You can check if you currently have a badge on your account on the My Schedule section of your account home page:

  • On desktop, click your name in the upper-right corner when signed into your account.
  • On mobile, sign in, tap your name in the menu, and then tap “My Schedule.”
  • If you bought badges for anyone besides yourself, they would see them on their home page or your “My Packets” page if the badges are being mailed.

Trade Day will return for Gen Con Indy 2021 in partnership with Alliance Game Distributors with a modified schedule and content tracks. A limited quantity of Trade Day badges will be available starting May 23 for educators, librarians, and retailers. Trade Day attendees who have rolled-over their badges from 2020 will be contacted with additional information.

Housing Registration for Gen Con Indy will open on June 6.

Registration for Gen Con Online and Pop-Up Gen Con will open on June 27, 2021. It will cost $5.
