They were, $80 + shipping and taxes and fees.  This year my badge is $109 shipped, it is getting to the point where I have to really question the worth of going to Indy....and I've been attending since 1989!

They were $80 last year, they are $90 this year, so they increased $10.

SO what was GC's logic for that?  I can somewhat understand the jacking we get from the hotels raising their rates YET AGAIN, but why the convention itself?

Luckily for me, cost is not as much of an issue, since i do eventually get it comp'ed since i hit the required Hrs for gming duties..

Just for a comparison, a national professional organization I am affiliated with was in Indy for a convention a few years ago, renting pretty much all the same space GenCon does. Cost to attend convention...more than $500.00. Gencon at $90.00 is still a bargain. Indy loves GenCon, but they don't give the space away, they still have to pay the bills on the convention center and there have been utility price increases to both water and power recently due to severe needs to improve infrastructure for both.

They keep raising the rates every year and attendance goes up every year.

Think how much it would go up if they didn't raise the price.

Now think about how awful that would be.

Not sure of the exact dates they start printing the badges and tickets, but It's not for a few months.

Badges and event tickets will start shipping after Pre-Registration ends, June 19th. You should also receive a confirmation and tracking information once your items are shipped.
