Frequently Asked Questions
How many people attended CinCityCon 2017?
The simplest answer is that 624 badges were issued. Now in fact the most people on site at any one time was Saturday afternoon when there was somewhere around 500 people on site between the Convention Center and the Hyatt. You will note that some conventions report “turnstile” attendance; this is in essence counting each person separately for each day they attended, meaning most folks are counted three times. The turnstile attendance for CinCityCon 2017 was over 1200. By badge sales alone, turnstile attendance was 1529.
When will CinCityCon 2018 happen?
CInCityCon will be October 12-14, 2018.
Did the date change?
Yes, it did. Our preference is to be in the first weekend of October. However, shortly after we set our 2018 dates, the Gun and Knife show switched to that weekend. And since they use up so much of the parking space at the Sharonville Convention Center, we opted to move our event to the following weekend.
Where will CinCityCon 2018 happen?
Our plan is to always return to the Sharonville Convention Center, and that is where we will be in 2018.
Can I buy a badge now?
Patience. 🙂 your first chance to obtain a badge for CinCityCon 2018 will be through our Kickstarter campaign expected to launch in late February, 2018.
How is Lexicon different from CinCityCon?
If you loved CinCityCon, you will almost certainly love Lexicon. Lexicon is an older event run by the same team that brings you CinCityCon. However, they are different in some important ways. Lexicon happens at the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center, which is a smaller venue that offers greater intimacy and ease of access to your hotel space. Plus much of the convention space is available 24 hours. Lexicon brings you the same great library, fast registration and exciting tournaments, but there is greater emphasis on things like teaching games and interacting directly with attendees. And we would be remiss if we did not point out the huge support we receive from West 6th Brewery.
Where can I find more information about Lexicon?
www.facebook.com/Lexicon is your best bet for finding out information about Lexicon during the off season. As we get closer to the event, check out the official con web site at www.lexicongaming.com. And of course if you are in Lexington, you can check out Monday nights at West 6th or Wednesday nights at The Rusty Scabbard to meet many of the regular attendees.
