Convention and Trade Show Schedule

This is a schedule of the game conventions that we know about, some of which we plan to attend. We are more than happy to help you promote your convention. If you'd like to add your con to our list, use our handy convention registry form.

We can also provide support to GMs who run SJ Games events at conventions and other types of convention support, such as GMs to run SJ Games events! Send mail to conventions@sjgames.com and let us know how we can help.

You can download these posters to publicize your games and help you find new players at conventions (or stores, or schools)!

We also need volunteers to help us at conventions.

[SJG Attended] Conventions listed with this pyramid symbol will have an SJ Games staffer in attendance. (For a list of JUST those conventions we'll be attending, click here.) If you would like a Steve Jackson Games staffer at your event, please read our guidelines for requesting a guest for your convention.

Apr. 21-23: Rising Phoenix GameCon – Milford, MA 02889
Location: Milford Doubletree by Hilton, 11 Beaver St, Milford, MA 01757
Greetings, We are a small Gaming Convention called Rising Phoenix GameCon in Massachusetts that had our first Con with over 300 attendees on April 22-24, 2022. We have a full slate of gaming from RPGs to Board Games to Miniature Events. I am writing to you for consideration of your sponsorship for our April 21-23, 2023 Convention. We have several sponsorship programs where you can donate either funding or product in exchange for promotional advertising in our Program Book, our on-site video loop, up to joining us as a vendor or having us design a Sponsorship Pennant for your Company to display in our Registration Area. I have included the link to our website and sponsorship levels. As a new convention we definitely could use prize support for our attendees and fledgling Board Game Library, what better way to get your new products into the hands of the people that will play and promote them? I am available for any questions you might have. https://risingphoenixgamecon.com/spon

June 23-25: LibertyCon 35 – Chattanooga, Tennasee
Location: Chattanooga Marriott Downtown, and Convention Center
You probably know by now that LibertyCon is a convention that prides itself on great guests, phenomenal panels, a killer ConSuite and our "Family Friendly Atmosphere". We're a convention that is small on purpose (we limit the attendees to 1000, which is actually in our Charter) since we want to give the fans a chance to sit down and chat with the guests. Sure we could try to bring in twice the attendees, but do you think you'd be able to sit on a couch with Terry Brooks talking about law or playing Magic the Gathering with Brandon Sanderson if we did?
