Origins International Game Expo
Origins International Game Expo is North America's second most prominent annual gaming convention (Gen Con is typically considered the largest). Origins is held every year in Columbus, Ohio, in late June or early July.
Origins is run by The Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) as one of their two shows for the adventure gaming industry. (The second show, GTS, is for game manufacturers and retailers only.) Unlike Gen Con, Origins is specifically chartered to serve adventure gaming in general, including wargames and miniatures gaming , which tend to be less well represented at Gen Con. Board games, trading card games, and role-playing games are also popular at Origins.
Origins is the site of the annual Origins Awards ceremony.
