Why Exhibit at GDEX?

Every year GDEX brings in hundreds of attendees from the Midwest and across the United States.  Our audience is engaged, entusiastic and excited to be part of the largest showcase of indy games within 500 miles of Columbus, Ohio.  Many companies who exhibit at GDEX show products that are seen here before anywhere else, making it a great place to start showing off your game, creative technology, or art.  GDEX offers low cost options for small teams to test the water, and larger options for established teams who want to secure their place in the market.  We host numerous networking oportunities throughout the weekend including an exclusive Exhibitor Mixer included with every booth tier.

The GDEX Indie Discount

GDEX is a show that was founded on the ideals that any studio, big or small, should have the opportunity to showcase their projects. This mantra has led us to create The GDEX Indie Discount, offering smaller companies the option to join the GDEX Showfloor at a significantly smaller cost.

To qualify for the GDEX Indie Discount, a team must be made up of less than 8 Full Time Members, or have made less than $500,000 in the last fiscal year.
