Food will be available from a variety of sources. Concessions will be open through daytime hours, and outside food and beverage are permitted. Additionally, a number of locations deliver to the convocation center. Check out this blog post with a list of available options!


Gamers for Giving will run throughout the entire weekend of April 28th and 29th. The venue will be open throughout the night, and attendees are welcome to stay at the venue. However, if roughing the weekend with a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress doesn’t sound like your thing, we recommend staying at the official Gamers for Giving 2018 hotel, the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest! Discounted rooms will be available in the coming weeks.


For those flying in from out of state, the closest airport to Gamers for Giving is the Detroit Metro Airport (airport code: DTW). The airport is about 20 minutes from the venue.
