About The Serious Games Showcase & Challenge

The Serious Games Showcase & Challenge is hosted annually by the National Training Systems Association in connection with the I/ITSEC Conference at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The goal of Serious Games Showcase & Challenge is to identify innovative game-based technologies and solutions that improve training across all segments for individuals, groups and systems.

Whether you’re an individual, small business or big business – the Serious Games Showcase & Challenge is open to you!  Submissions can be targeted to training in any segment, including education, corporate, or military. If you can "mod" a game into a training solution, or program one from scratch, consider how you would use your skills to develop a Serious Game solution to enhance training. It could put your work in front of some of the best gaming and simulation companies in the world.
