GaMExpo is San Antonio’s premier gaming convention. GaMexpo will be providing San Antonio with all forms of gaming such as roleplaying, board games, card games, miniatures and video games. The convention was founded by Vince and Colleen Guzman who have their own independent gaming companies in San Antonio, they have attended and volunteered at numerous conventions throughout San Antonio, and they produce and host the San Antonio You Tube show Geek Out SA. They are joined in this endeavor by volunteers who have worked diligently to help build up the gaming community in the San Antonio area.
Our mission is to bring together the San Antonio gaming community by providing them with gaming events where they can socialize with their friends, make new friends, create wonderful memories, learn new games and play games they enjoy.
