Event Submission

Are you interested in running events at Nexus? We want your events! Nexus Game Fair is proud to offer our attendees a massive line-up for events provided by not only our attendees, but also local area gaming groups, demo teams, organized play groups, and our in-house staff. Our show revolves around playing games and relies upon our attendees and event organizers to help provide them.

If you enjoy playing a board game, but can't find players, or if you love to gamemaster an RPG for a fresh group of players, you're welcome to bring your games and events to Nexus. We have a generous GM rewards program, and our Events Team will do anything they can to help make your events a success at the show.

Table space is limited, so be sure to submit your events early to help ensure you obtain the day and time you're looking for.

Event Registration

Event registration at Nexus is handled via pre-registration. Our event catalog will have its initial release on Sunday, May 15, 2022. Feel free to browse the catalog all month, as additional events will continue to be added. You may use our Favorites feature to save events you like, as a reminder when registration opens.

Standard event registration begins at 8pm on Sunday, May 29, 2022 (Central Time). Our system is a live system, which is a first-come, first-serve. You must have purchased a badge in order to participate in event registration. Please note that our Early Bird and Premier badge holders have access to early event registration.
