About the Tour

Geek Nation Tours is very excited to present our tour to the world’s largest tabletop wargaming tournament and convention – AdeptiCon. Here discriminating wargamers from around the world find a multitude of gaming experiences – from tournaments using a variety of different wargaming systems to the very best in gaming and painting seminars. AdeptiCon is also a wargamers’ shopping paradise with a huge amount of vendors waiting to show you their wares. It is a spectacle to be seen and experienced. Game with the best, meet friends from around the world, and roll dice all night long!

AdeptiCon 2016 is sure to be the best tabletop experience ever.  Last year we were introduced to a new venue with more options and the ability to offer tabletop gamers an unprecedented experience! Reviews of the venue were overwhelmingly positive and GNT participants loved it. Geek Nation Tours and AdeptiCon will bring you nothing short of an elite wargamers’ experience in 2016.

In the past Geek Nation Tours brought tour participants Pre-public guaranteed AdeptiCon registration. We offered those that hop on the tour the opportunity to select AdeptiCon events before the general public and thus insure that tour participants get to grab all the events that they are hoping for.   This year is no exception – book prior to October 30th 2015 and you will be able to pre-register for all events in advance of them going public. Don’t come half way across the world only to have the spots you wanted disappear…

2016 will see Geek Nation Tours again include both the Very Important Gamer and Regular AdeptiCon Weekend Pass in the tour price. The package includes Preferred Check-in, an AdeptiCon T-shirt, and an AdeptiCon glass – but most importantly you will get advanced early entry to the Vendor’s Hall.  That’s right!  If you want your resin you will be able to get it.  Don’t have access to all the cool gaming vendors at home?  Come join us!

Not only that – Geek Nation Tours makes your VIG package even better!  We love making it easier for our tour participants!  We will pick up your tickets, weekend passes and your swag bags for you. Absolutely no waiting in line – just show up at the Welcome Dinner and “bang”you will receive your loot hassle free (with a few extras from Geek Nation Tours and Ironheart Artisans).

Geek Nation Tours has of course, hotel rooms right at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel! So all you have to do is roll out of bed and into the goodness that is AdeptiCon.  But thats not all! The Renaissance has also given us free wifi in our rooms for the duration of our stay…

Each year Geek Nation Tours offers an “AdeptiCon Welcome Dinner” where we have had tonnes of Guest Speakers from all aspects of the Wargaming Universe.  From Black Library authors Dan Abnett, Chris Wraight, C.L. Werner and Andy Smillie to Game Designers like Andy Chambers.  GNT also invites Wargame Industry leaders like Privateer Press, Mantic Games and Cool Mini or Not, to Pro Painters Victoria LambChris Borer, Dave Taylor, Meg Maples, Brandon Palmer, and Sculptor Patrick Keith from Bombshell Miniatures.  Of course our Podcasting friends also come join us for some fun and allow fans to visit with the crews from 40K Radio, Independent Characters, The Overlords, Bad Dice, Ohiohammer and the Screaming Heretics to name only a few.

This year we will expand the ability to let you meet awesome people in the wargaming industry to every single night we are at AdeptiCon!  We will have our Welcome Dinner of course, but because they were so successful (and tonnes of fun) we will again offer our “Meet the Podcasters” RAM night out, then our “Geek Nation Tours Wargaming Industry Leaders” Night and our “Pro Hobbyist One on One Night.  We will round this up with our Farewell Dinner, AdeptiCon Poker Mixer and Boardgaming Night with the D6Generation and other guest speakers!  Each night will have a multitude of Wargaming Guest Speakers, tonnes of gaming and loads of fun!
