Origins 2010 Recap

Thank you to our fans, sponsors, volunteers and GMs for a great Origins show this year! If you attended Origins this year, you helped increase attendance from last year by more than 5%, bringing in 10,669 people. Sponsorship jumped this year to 19 sponsors. Thanks to all our sponsors for making the show bigger and brighter with great advertising, prize support for game events and tons of other support! The Exhibitor’s Hall was a great success as well! This year’s space was sold out; full of vendors from all over the country selling their goods. A special thank you goes out to this year’s volunteers. Without all of your hard work and dedication, Origins would not have been possible. So, THANK YOU!

“My biggest thrill was seeing the youngsters in the kid’s room and watching them as they enjoyed the activities of the show!” says GAMA Executive Director, John Ward. “I think it is a testament to the hobby as a whole that we are in the business of ‘fun’ and I am excited when I see that next generation joining us all in the games we love and enjoy.”

Thank you again to everyone and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s show!

    As a loyal Origins attendee, I’m pleased to hear that this year’s version was a success. In the future, please consider expanding the hours of the dealer hall. Instead of 10am – 6pm, it would be great if the dealer hall could be open from 9am – 7pm. (Many role-playing game slots in particular happen from 10am – 2pm and 2pm – 6pm. Anyone who is involved in such games gets locked out of the Dealer Hall for that day.) A second suggestion is to drastically increase event offerings on Wednesday. Since the Dealer Hall is not open at all on Wed., events are pretty much the only game in town. Events on Wednesday sold out early and I found myself scrambling to find anything at all to do during certain time slots. Thanks for your time and attention. (P.S. You might also change the heading at the top of this webpage which still refers to the 2008 show dates.)
