2014 DETAILS WILL BE POSTED SOON!

— BELOW IS LAST YEAR’S INFORMATION

Game Summit 2013 will be held in a new venue, the Palais des congrès de Gatineau, giving us 4 times more space than at our last event; over 50,000 square feet of gaming related activities, and only 5 minutes from the Rideau Centre. The 2013 event follows on the heels of our successful past summits and spotlights even more table-top gamers, activities, contests, and vendors, all together in one location. Casual and hardcore gamers, hobbyists and geeks alike will be busy at this top-flight convention from the moment the doors open, until closing time.
