I am planning a large game day, and this may be a stupid question, but what determines whether a game company will send out games as prizes and stuff? I have gone to a couple smaller cons and they had prizes from all kinds of publishers. I was wondering what is usually required to get stuff for your con? I'm not expecting to get anything, more just wondering what it takes.

Just contact publishers, tell them who you are and what the event consists of (who's attending, the numbers etc...) and tell them what you're looking for. It doesn't hurt and a publisher isn't going to do anything to you for asking

I would suggest local companies and/or games involving a lot of presence (like a tournament of some sort) and/or the possibility of press coverage would be possible 'power cards' for you.

When contacting them offer to promote their games by getting and playing promo games from them, getting flyers, posters etc. It always helps if you are willing to do something for them too.
