Origins 2023 Countdown ~ Exhibit Hall Preview

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 31 May 2023

Registration for Origins 2023 is ongoing, and there are still seats in plenty of wargaming events, so check out our consolidated listings and get registered!  To help in planning your laps through the vendor hall, we’ve annotated the exhibit hall map with some key booths for you.

As wargamers are prepping for their thunder run thru the exhibit call, here’s what we’ve broadly ID’ed as the wargame/wargame-adjacent vendors in the exhibit hall.  As with the wargame events grid preview earlier, our general guidance is “if we’ll include it in Tuesday Newsday then we’ll include it here,” plus a couple of friends, too.

The usual caveats:

  • Not all of these folks are wargame-specific, but many have wargame-related material, too.
  • There are going to be some retailers selling wargames (especially more casual ones) alongside a lot of non-wargame content, but we don’t have any good way of ID’ing those from the vendor hall listing. Feel free to drop us a line or a comment if there’s someone we need to add.
  • See the map below for the vendors in the table, highlighted in that weird pinkle/mauve sort of color, with the company names next to those booths.

The gaming hall has a “tall” orientation this year, as it spans the north end of the convention center.  For those of you that were at the ‘weird’ October 2021 Origins, it looks like the gaming hall essentially takes up the same space that the entire 2021 Origins did.  And we’re right in the middle of the whole thing.  Adjacent to us (covered up by our green arrow) is where you’ll find the Rogue Judges.  But we’ve got HMGS, Catalyst, and Ohio War Kings all right nearby, too, so there’s plenty of other wargaming and wargame-adjacent gaming going on around us, too.

For the full maps, including the conference rooms, War College, seminars, and other separate play areas, please see the full set of maps on the Origins website.
