We understand that game development is an expensive process and development studios have different needs at different stages of their design. For this reason, we have two booth levels available for developers depending on their specific needs.
Ideal for developers with promotional materials (banners, signage) and smaller demo requirements (laptops, iPads, iPhones). Developers can stand behind table and invite fans to play their games one-on-one and get immediate feedback.
$250 Per Table
Ideal for larger developers who wish to have multiple machines running, or that need a large communal areas for multiplayer gaming and play-testing. Ample promotional space for banners, signage, registration tables, and multiple staff members interacting with fans.
$400 per space, $450 for a corner space. Additional Demo 10×10 Space available for $200.
Electricity for the weekend is purchased directly from the convention center and includes fees for hookup/setup and total power drawn for the weekend. On average, we anticipate most exhibitors will need to budget between $150-$200 for their electrical needs. We do not markup or profit from these fees in any way.
Unless you select the Indie Game Table, you must buy directly from the electricity provider for the show. The order form can be found right here.
For Indie Game Tables, you will be sharing electricity with other game developers within your shared space. No more than two computer devices may be plugged in from your table. If additional power is needed, additional fees may apply.
Internet may be purchased directly from the convention center, but be aware the surcharges and expenses are high.
We recommend using a third-party cellular provided and private Wi-fi hot spot if internet connection is necessary.
If at all possible, you should configure your demo to avoid using internet connectivity to avoid connection issues.
All exhibitors are automatically entered into the competition unless they do not meet our requirements for independent video game developer classification. You do not need to enter a separate form at this time.
Yes! We will feature dedicated areas for board, tabletop, and digital gaming. Board and tabletop gamers don’t traditionally need electricity, so this page is geared more towards meeting the needs of the digital developer. But rest assured if you come with a board game, you will not be alone!
All independent video game developers who exhibit at PopCon are eligible for the $10,000 RIGA Grand Prize.
