BIGCON is coming!

Last September I helped organize a games convention here in Kamloops – BIGCON.  We had about 150 people come through the doors playing board games, Magic the Gathering and various Warhammer miniatures games.  Fun was had by all but we lost $600+.

BIGCON 2011 IS COMING!!!   September 24/25th, 2011.

With this exciting event comes planning.  Hopefully we have learnt from our mistakes.

Here are a couple of things I have learned from the first CON:

1. Don’t rent a convention centre unless you have serious financial backing!  This will be the biggest expenditure.  Start small – find a school gym and a couple of classrooms or a local community centre.

2. You need a salesperson – someone that can knock on business doors and get them to advertise, donate or be a vendor at the event.  This is where your money will come from.

3. Have fun – don’t stress – games are fun!!!!
