GME Giving Power at Conference
Thank you to all of our associates who entered to win an opportunity to help families in need! Preparing breakfast for the Ronald McDonald House guests of Central Indiana will be a great experience, and your efforts will make a huge difference.
This year we had an overwhelming over 450 submissions! So, we doubled our number of attendees and have created 2 RMH events at Conference. Some of you will participate Saturday night, and some will go on Sunday morning … but you will both have the same experience. See below for the list of winners.
Store On The Floor All Week Long!
We know how much you love shopping for GME apparel and goodies at Conference. So this year, both GameStop Gear and Store on the Floor will be open from Saturday, August 25th - Tuesday evening, August 28th! GameStop Gear will be located in the GameStop Cafe in Hall F of the Indy Convention Center and Store on the Floor will be located in Hall D.
Note: Any items you buy at both GameStop Gear and SOTF are your responsibility. GameStop will not be able to provide shipping back to your home address for any items you purchase. So...plan ahead.

Giving you a head's up in General Session & the VTR's!
So that you are prepared for the stimulating audio-visual experiences our vendors will provide at Conference, you will find icons in the Show Guide and the Conference App that indicate when a vendor presentation will contain pyrotechnics, lasers, or realistic combat experiences. If you are uneasy about experiencing any of these elements or have a medical condition preventing you from doing so, please talk to your District Leader, Human Resources Leader, or Regional Leader.
