Starting in 2003, America's largest game-play convention will move from its traditional home in Wisconsin to a new site in Indianapolis. The Gen Con Game Fair, founded in 1968 by Dungeons and Dragons
creator Gary Gygax with a focus on roll-playing paper games, has grown in scope and now attracts 20,000 attendees annually. The show has also grown in importance computer game developers. The change in location follows the sale of conference managers Wizards of the Coast. Gen Con will remain in Milwaukee through 2002. "After careful consideration, we chose Indianapolis as the future site of Gen Con because it offers an ideal setting to accommodate the growth of the convention and foster our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of the show," said Gen Con events manager David Wilson.
