Conventions with Video Game programming
The GLS PL Summit promotes professional development opportunities to celebrate and deepen educators’ use of games in various educational settings, and fosters collaboration among teachers, designers, researchers and others throughout the elementary to higher education continuum.
Farpoint is an American science-fiction convention held since 1993 in Maryland. The convention is fan-run and gives every attendee a VIP experience without the VIP-size price tag. Typical programming includes panel discussions, a competitive masquerade, independent film and fan videos, a dedicated gaming room, an art show and auction, charity auction, interactive live performances and celebrity guest appearances. It is a successor convention to ClipperCon (1984-1989) and OktoberTrek (1990-1992).
The mission of SaltCON is “to bring people together with games.” Come play with your family and friends. We have exhibitors, prizes, Game teachers, tournaments and a huge game library to try out new games. We’ll have board, card, and party games available.
