About AdeptiCon

ADEPTICON 2019

17 YEARS AND COUNTING!

AdeptiCon has grown consistently over the past sixteen years, from the humble 110 person event in 2002, to the amazing 4,500 attendees AdeptiCon hosted in 2018. Over these sixteen years, AdeptiCon has been held at five different venues. We have expanded from a handful of events to well over 460 tournaments, event games, and hobby seminars covering all aspects of the miniature war gaming hobby. Despite the continued growth and necessary expansion, we have made every effort to keep consistent focus on one major priority: to present to our attendees the highest quality wargaming event possible. This will remain our priority for 2019 and beyond.

Future Dates: AdeptiCon 2020 will be held March 25th through March 29th.
