INDIANAPOLIS - Attendance numbers for Indianapolis' four-day gaming convention broke records again, convention organizers said.
Gen Con 2014, which was held at the Indiana Convention Center Aug. 14-17, attracted 56,614 attendees, an increase over 2013 of more than 7,000 people.
Gen Con organizers said the convention also had a record number of exhibitors and events at this year's gathering.
A new record was also set for donations to Gleaners Food Bank, the official charity partner of Gen Con. The convention raised more than $40,000 for the food bank's BackSack program , which provides weekend food for needy children.
Gen Con will return to Indianapolis July 30 - August 2, 2015.
