Conclave 2015 Dates
For 2015 we’re moving up a few months – because who can stand waiting until July again! In addition we are adding even more gaming. We will have around 72 hours of straight gaming! We will start in the evening of Thursday, April 16th and go straight through until the evening of Sunday, April 19th. We will once again be at the DIA Crowne Plaza.
