Description: The 405th Midwest has been requested to appear at the Cleveland Gaming Classic, held at the IX Center in Cleveland, Ohio!

"Our event began over 10 years ago through a shared passion of gaming amongst a small group of friends in a Cleveland basement. Today, the Cleveland Gaming Classic has grown into something much larger, but still stays rooted in a passion for everything gaming and more! And if you haven't been to CGC before, there is something truly for everyone - and it's great for kids! Whether you're into video games, toys, collectibles, cosplay, competing in tournaments, card games, comics, tabletop games, meeting legendary icons, nostalgia and more - we've got it all. This September 22 - 24, 2023, we are thrilled to be back at the the I-X Center! This allows us to expand our content greater than ever before. Additionally, we take great pride in giving back to our community here in Cleveland. Since 2020 we've raised over $13,000 for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland. We'll see you this September 22 - 24, 2023 at the IX Center for Ohio's largest convention for a weekend of everything gaming and more!"

So is it like a normal con or something like hcs?
Looking at their Website (FAQ | Cleveland Gaming Classic) it sounds to be like a "normal" con, just with a heavy focus on Video Gaming:

What's there to do there?
Are you kidding me? An onsite arcade, pinball, special guests, main stage programs, kids' programs, photo opps, tournaments, collectibles, massive vendor expo, toys, comics, crafts, cosplay & so much more!

It's just a stones throw away for me, and I have been looking for an excuse to go check it out for the last couple years. Yeah, count me in as well. Though I may only be a Sat-Sun appearance due to work.
