Trade Day

Trade Day is your opportunity to share information with your retailer peers in educational seminars and get the latest information from the top publishers in the industry to better your store. It’s the “Best of GAMA Trade Show” right here at Origins on Wednesday, June 12! In recent years, Trade Day has been held on Thursday, but we moved it back a day so you can fully enjoy the Exhibit Hall and gaming events all weekend long!

In the morning, we have three hours of peer-to-peer retailer seminars scheduled in rooms A214 - A216. These seminars were selected based on positive retailer feedback during the GAMA Trade Show.

In the afternoon, we will also have three hours of sponsor presentations, during which sponsoring publishers will share info on their newest releases and programs for your store. Attend three of these seminars to pick up the Retailer Appreciation Box, filled with exciting product from our sponsors valued at over $350 MSRP! Redeem your completed presentation passport at any point Thursday - Saturday from 10am - 6pm in the Retailer Lounge (Room A120) to receive your Box!
