Why should I attend GTS again?
If this is your first time at the show, the GAMA Trade Show is hosted by the Game Manufacturers Association. It is an event for our industry that provides opportunities for retailers to learn from and network with manufacturers, retailers, and professionals in the industry. GTS Provides:
1) New Member Orientation Program We want our new members to feel at home at GTS. Tuesday morning join us for coffee, meet the GAMA Board, GAMA benefits providers, each of our distributor members, and finally listen to manufacturer presentations geared to new stores.
2) Meals and Updates This year, each retailer will have the majority of their meals covered at the show. We are providing short presentations at each sponsored lunch and the GAMA Dinner. One dinner ticket is free with your GAMA membership. (Additional tickets are only $15.) Join us Wednesday night for Games Night. Manufacturers provide gaming and demos; snacks and drinks from 6 to midnight.
3) Teaching and Training In addition to our outstanding seminar program, our sponsors are providing interactive teaching and demonstration sessions in breakout rooms. These Premier Presentation sessions are designed to provide that “hands on” interaction between retailers and manufacturers to discuss, teach, and train on the newest releases. These presentations will be presented by Bandai, Wizards of the Coast, Cryptozoic, Mayfair Games, AEG, Sandstorm, Paizo , Konami, and WizKids.
