TheGameCon was founded in August of 2014, bringing the first gaming and technology driven convention to the greater Houston area that was for the whole family. Located on Galveston Island TheGameCon is the perfect experience for families to game together in a safe and family friendly environment while enjoying the wonderful island of Galveston.
While founding TheGameCon founders Zackary Pedersen, a student at the University of Houston at the time, and Matt Roche, a current student at Indiana University at Pennsylvania, set out to create a family friendly oriented gaming convention that entertained kids, parents, and young adults alike. Giving our attendees the opportunity to meet top level YouTube and Twitch personalities, like JeromeASF and AviatorGaming, in a relaxed open environment that encouraged interaction like no other event. Each year since 2014 Zackary and Matt have been working on improving the convention year over year while maintaining to the same core values it was founded under. It is TheGameCon’s goal to create an interactive, high energy, family friendly gaming convention for to enjoy from entry to departure.
