Origins Game Fair

Origins Game Fair

I’ll be participating in the Origins Game Fair this week as part of the Origins Library. The Library programming and author tables have moved to a new location. Previously, our signing tables were way in the back of the huge vendor hall, and our programming was tucked away in a room upstairs. This year, both will be in a spotlight area across from the main entrance of Hall A. This is the area where badge registration was last year.
