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. In addition, each retail member that PRE-REGISTERS for the GAMA Trade Show and attends a Premier Presentation in each of the presentation time blocks will qualify to receive a Retailer Appreciation Package of new product valued at over $1500 that will ship directly to their store*.
Please take some time to check out the show schedule, look at the reviews from previous years, and contact the office to have our staff answer your questions. We want every member to learn and benefit from the business opportunities at the GAMA Trade Show every year.
*Introductory retailer members (start up retailers that do not yet have an operational business) do not qualify to receive the Retailer Appreciation Package.
