The GAMA Trade Show is the largest and most personal event in the gaming hobby market. It is a closed trade show for members of GAMA only and is one of the finest annual events for the hobby channel.
Each year we bring together the brightest and the best of the hobby market. Hundreds of retail store members attend the event, participating in seminars and walking the exhibit hall, connecting directly with publishers, manufacturers, distributors, and other industry professionals.
The GAMA Trade Show is part annual conference and part traditional trade show with some exciting events thrown in. We offer a wide variety of professional development seminars for manufacturers, retail stores, game designers, and other industry professionals. The exhibit hall is filled with companies displaying their products and services and are eager to interact. Experience the thrill of testing new games at Games Night, attend the sponsored lunches and the GAMA Dinner, and even play in the poker tournament.
Retailers can interface with the industry leadership by attending manufacturers’ Premier Presentations, where they gain information, ask questions, and participate in discussions about the hobby industry.
