Open House Registration is Open!

The 2018 Alliance Open House schedule is more robust than ever before. We've packed in 6-hours of Exhibit Hall time, 8-hours of Demo Hall time, 4 special events, meals, prizes, raffles, and more! Registration for the Open House is due Friday, July 27th.

What is the Open House?

The Open House is Alliance Game Distributor’s annual trade show held at the Grand Wayne Convention Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Open House is scheduled for the weekend of September 7-9, 2018. Since the Open House is a closed gaming-industry event, only Alliance Game Distributor & Diamond Comic retailers will be able to attend. This event provides a unique opportunity for retail store owners, manufacturers, and vendor partners to network and interact among peers in this industry we all know and love.

What should I expect?

You can expect to participate in a slew of activities while attending the Open House. On Friday, we’ll open registration and host our very first Demo Night. At the Demo Night you’ll participate in multiple demo opportunities with our sponsors in a casual environment. On Saturday, you can expect a full day of workshops and focus groups; with time in between to explore Fort Wayne’s local eateries. Saturday evening we’ll host dinner and our second Demo Night. Sunday begins with a sponsored breakfast, additional workshop, lunch, and ends with our highly-anticipated vendor exhibit hall.
