About AdeptiCon

ADEPTICON 2020

18 YEARS AND COUNTING!

AdeptiCon has grown consistently over the past seventeen years, from the humble 110 person event in 2003, to the amazing 6,500 attendees AdeptiCon hosted in 2019. Over these seventeen years, AdeptiCon has been held at five different venues. We have expanded from a handful of events to well over 650 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 2020 and beyond.
