Let's start with the Big News! We will be expanding our space by 50% at the same great venue! The Clarion Hotel and Conference Center is remodeling space in the gym area adding space almost as large as the ballroom! We will move RPGs there so that they won't have to deal with the noise of the boardgaming area. Which also means more space for boardgaming!!! Win Win for Everyone!

You can also get access to our gala evening full of fun Adult Social Gaming Parties, sponsored by West Sixth Brewing. Be sure to check out our special gaming party with a Founder, which includes giving away and teaching a special game to each participant and this year a LexiCon Sweat Shirt. Incidentally, the Founder's Party sold out in less than a day last year and everyone had a blast! Just an FYI.
LexiCon will be held annually and will be the most entertaining tabletop boardgaming weekend event that can be imaged by its creators. These events will focus on tabletop boardgaming and RPG activities in a Fun atmosphere that will include Cosplay, LARPing, a huge Gaming Library, and adult Game Parties. LexiCon will have lots of family gaming events during the day and specific gaming events focusing on adults in the evening. Finally, LexiCon will focus on diversity of people and games and expanding the joys of boardgaming to the community.
LexiCon will be held for the sixth year at the Clarion Hotel Conference Center at 1950 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY 40511. The Clarion Hotel has had major update for all of their hotel rooms and conference center, adding a lot more space for 2019! Our rooms are significantly discounted over their regular rates and you can get this discount by stating you want the "LexiCon" rate.
Thanks to our Premier Sponsor
Risks and challenges
We have now had 5 successful conventions. Short of a major catastrophe, we expect a very successful Lexicon 2019. The real question is how big will it be?
Among the things we have learned is to get the contracts in place as soon as possible to make sure individual events and convention enhancements happen successfully. Of course we have no control over the hotel if they make an error and there is a problem with the space; we apologize if a GM or a special guest does not show up for an event, we will do our best to find someone to take their place. Some events will become full, since we focus so much on having a large variety of events, rather than multiple versions of the same event, if this happens early, we will try to schedule additional sessions, but can not guarantee entry into any events.
