Saturday, February 26, 2022
10AM to 6PM

The Great Lakes Comic Convention, or GLCC, is a comic book, toy, and collectible event that runs annually in the Metro-Detroit Area (Michigan). The goals of GLCC are to provide not only a venue for collectors, dealers, and fans to get together, but also an opportunity for people to meet/greet industry talent and guests – many of whom have not been to the Metro-Detroit Area for years.  We try to achieve this while showing a support for children’s literacy, as well as other child-related charities.

LTU Expo 2021(Online)

TU Expo, also known as LTUX, is a celebration of game development and eSports. Before we return to our regularly scheduled campus-wide celebration of anime, games, and eSports, we’re going virtual. Now, instead of just one day to celebrate some awesome people and their games, we will be hosting a virtual 6-day event from April 19th through April 24th! Throughout the week, we will host some amazing speakers, panels, and student/indie games, an eSports competition, an awards ceremony, and a charity livestream benefitting ExtraLife of Beaumont Children’s Hospital.

Ann Arbor Michigan Pinball Show 2020

2020 pinball showcase Saturday April 25th and Sunday April 26th with 425+ machines on free play. Our facility is the one of the largest dedicated pinball venues (by unique game count) in North America and has games from the 1950s “woodrails” to the latest games from Stern pinball. Every decade, manufacturer and game type is represented at the museum. There are many rare and hard to find games set up and ready to play. All machines are free play, so one entrance ticket allows unlimited play for the day. There’s something for every pinball fan here (we are the one of the largest dedicated pinball facility in North America.) But unlike other pinball museum type facilities, we are here every day working on our machines, making sure they play perfect! Arguably this makes us the best working/restored pinball collection in North America.

Gamers for Giving 2020 ONLINE

Gamers for Giving is a competitive gaming tournament and LAN party that helps generate resources for the initiatives of Gamers Outreach. Funds raised from the event help support Gamers Outreach charity initiatives, such as building portable gaming carts for children in hospitals.

COVID-19 Update from their website:
Over the past few weeks, our team has been actively monitoring developments regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). Attendee safety, as well as the safety of our volunteers, sponsors, and streamers is our top priority.

In consideration of growing public health concerns, we’ve decided to move this year’s Gamers for Giving to an online-only format. We will not be hosting a LAN or on-site tournaments at the EMU Convocation Center this year.

As you can imagine, this was not an easy decision to make. Our team works hard throughout the year to create an incredible experience for the gaming community. We sought guidance from our board, advisors, as well as health authorities in Michigan. We believe this course of action is in the best interest of our attendees and the event as a whole.

Refunds will be issued to all original ticket purchasers over the next 7 – 10 days. If you do not receive a refund by March 18th, please contact our team via email at [email protected] If you bought a ticket from a third party, please contact them directly with refund requests.

While Gamers for Giving won’t have a LAN component or tournaments, we still intend to produce an online fundraising marathon throughout the weekend of March 28th & 29th. We’ll be streaming live on our Twitch channel both days, and a number of our industry friends will be broadcasting from home!

Gamers for Giving is a major driver for our programs in hospitals. Kids and their families have come to depend on our ongoing support for the devices we provide. We’re going to make every effort to ensure we have a strong outcome, but we’ll need everyone’s help and encouragement to get there.

We invite you to join us online March 28th & 29th. Anyone can create a Tiltify fundraising campaign in support of our $700,000 goal to provide hospitalized children with access to entertainment. With your help, we can still make a massive difference for young gamers receiving medical care.

While we’re disappointed we won’t be able to unite our community in-person, as gamers, we’re the best in the world at uniting together through the internet. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this anomalous situation.

We look forward to hosting a LAN next year, and hope to see you this March 28th & 29th online.
