To our potential advertisers:
Texicon reaches out to hundreds of gamers and game stores in the South and South West regions of the U.S..
When you advertise with us, our clients become yours, This includes our outreach programs both in print and in
Last year, our convention attendees were greeted by ads in our program sponsored by many great game
companies. As a rule, we focus on hosting their games, where able, as way to introduce the gaming community
to their specific products. If you advertise with us, as a manufacturer of games, this is a perfect way for your
product to get demoed and given away. Should you have a Demo Team, we will work with you to make it
happen. Please note: all Game Manufacturers are limited to 1 game per day via a demo team. Only vendors,
who purchase a vendor table or vendor booth have the ability to demo product non-stop during the convention.
They do this at their vendor booths or vendor tables.
This year we're streamlining our advertising by offering Packages for you to choose. Below, you will find the list
of the advertisement packages and options available. Since you'll want to reach out to the gaming population of
this region, I know you'll want to take advantage of. Please contact me with the package or option that suit your
company needs and we'll handle the arrangements. Moreover, if you don’t see something that specifically
targets your customers, Karl will be happy to tailor something that fits your company needs and budget.
For our current statistics on attendees, and any other metrics you'll be interested in please email Karl:
Reach out to the community by being included in our Program and have them notice your company
throughout the entire convention. That's right, your ad will be placed in our program and we'll hang
one poster in the appropriate game hall. We'll accept 20 posters from you—hang one in the
appropriate hall, and maintain that poster's visual appeal. All posters will be given out at the end of
the convention. Program ad needs to be black and white, print ready and 1/2 page (~4x6). The best
part is that this is a very cost effective way to reach out to the gamers.

Those packages are great but you're thinking "Hey… I need something different!" and that's great too because we
also offer other types of advertising.

Bag Instert: $200.00 (Payment only)
Send to us twenty of your posters and we'll hang them in the appropriate gaming hall (Miniatures, Role
Playing, or Board Games). This offers the gamers a chance to see products that they may typically
overlook. We can not return the posters. However, we will ensure that if a rip or tear occurs, the poster will
be replaced from the stock you've sent. At the end of the convention, the posters will be given away to the
attendees. We will make every attempt to distribute them in a fun way that also energizes the attendees
who played games from your company.
