Special Opportunity for Boardgame Publishers
Jan. 24, 2007

The Boardgame Players Association is looking for 10 good new games

Publishers far and wide are invited to submit their boardgame products for use in the 10-game demo portion of WBC’s largest Pre-Con, the Sampler Showcase, scheduled for July 30-31, 2007, at the Lancaster Host Resort in Lancaster, Pa. Any boardgame which has not been a tournament at a past WBC is eligible.

The World Boardgaming Championships is unique in the realm of gaming conferences…eight continuous days of the best boardgaming tournaments on the planet. And this year WBC is reaching out to publishers far and wide to introduce their products to the 1,500 boardgamers who faithfully return to Lancaster, PA, year after year for the annual summer convention. A special two-day Demonstration and Open Gaming event will allow attendees to sample 10 new games that have the potential to become a regular tournament staple in the years to come.

You can have your game considered as one of these games by sending a copy to BPA, 1541 Redfield Rd, Bel Air, MD 21015 by June 1, 2007. If your game is selected as one of those included in the 10-game demo portion of the Sampler Showcase, you will need to provide four additional copies for use in the demonstration. Whether selected or not, the donation will entitle you to free distribution of your literature in the WBC registration packet given to 1,500 attendees at check-in. For more information, contact the Convention Director Don Greenwood at doncon99@toad.net.

Additional opportunities for publishers to reach WBC attendees:

VENDORS: Sales at WBC are limited to approved Vendors. Space is limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. WBC hosts all of its vendor sales in a secure room devoted exclusively to vendors. Sales at past WBCs have been brisk, with most vendors reporting good results comparable to far larger, but less focused, shows. All paid vendors will be given a logo link on the exhibitor links portion of our website. To advertise in our Program/Yearbook or on our website, see our Advertising rates. See photos of the Vendor Room in 2006.

EXHIBITORS: Publishers may also purchase a permanent demonstration table(s) for use Tuesday thru Sunday in either of the main gaming venues. This Demonstration Area is neither secured nor subject to exhibit hour restrictions. Sales are not allowed in the Demonstration Area. Impromptu demonstrations by unlicensed vendors are strictly prohibited. See photos of some of our 2006 exhibitors.

SEMINARS: BPA is pleased to provide use of a state of the art audio-visual classroom with banked seating for seminars. Introduce your company’s new and coming products and interact with your customers in a scheduled meeting. Designers can expound on their design philosophy and explain the whys and wherefores of their latest projects. Seminars are free to all vendors and exhibitors. Submit seminar information via the Seminar Form. First come, first servedspace is limited. See the list of 2006 WBC Seminars.
