GCX, formerly GuardianCon, is a two-day live event that takes place at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. There you can visit various booths run by content creators, developers, artists, and industry realated exhibitors. In the past, we've had LAN tournaments for games like Apex Legends and Sea of Thieves. With multiple stages, there is a full schedule of your favorite content creators doing Q&As or live podcasts. In 2021, We took our live event to space as we launched GCX’21 on board the GCX Space Station. Backed by Unreal Engine 4, Rare Drop created a live event… in space!

The GCX Charity Marathon, founded by ProfessorBroman, is the heart of what we do. It’s a week-long marathon which boasts content creators and developers like Dr. Lupo, BigCheeseKIT, and Digital Extremes. They donate their time in four-hour blocks during our 24/7 stream to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

GCX is an official charity partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. To date, the GCX Charity Marathon has raised over $15,000,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s gaming division, St. Jude Play Live. In total, St. Jude Play Live has raised over $35,000,000!
