Do you want to know how you can turn your own gaming group into a whole blown out convention?
Today we are joined by Sheena Vandevanter and Terry Whisenant from CHUPACABRA CON who talk to us about how they built a Tabletop Convention and how your can do the same.
This episode actually captures another interesting aspect of the gaming profession- how relationships can turn into game career opportunities.
Over the course of talking with Sheena we were able to work out a partnership with Austin Boardgame Designers (a group I help lead) to create a sort of mini-protospiel/unpub type playtesting event within the convention. It was through this relationship and others that we were able to put together a 3 day event, with speakers, workshops, and sponsors, for great mutual benefit.
Ill let you listen to the episode for more details, but it’s a cool way to showcase how you can use your relationships to build communities and expand the audience for your projects.
