Do you want to buy advertisements in our Program Book and our Progress Reports?
The Con Com is currently planning on releasing two additional Progress Reports prior to the convention, as well as a Program Book at the convention itself. The Progress Reports, due in December and around early spring of next year, will be in PDF:format (A4), and emailed to all those who’ve paid or pre-registered for a membership at the time of send-out.
The Program Book, a printed booklet in A5-format, will be handed out to all members at the Registration Desk upon arrival at the convention.
The Progress Reports and the Program Book are excellent opportunities to reach members of the SFF community, and therefore great places for your business (be it a publishing house, a bookstore, a podcast, an online store etc.) to place an ad! The cost of advertising is as follows:
In the Program Book (A5, printed booklet) 1250 SEK / Full page 750 SEK / Half a page 450 SEK / One third of a page
I our Progress Reports (digital send out, PDF, A4) 400 SEK / Full page 200 SEK / Half a page 100 SEK / One third of a page
Should you want an ad placed in the upcoming December report, we would need your ad sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, by November 23rd at the latest, along with your billing info. (Next Progress Report deadline is March 1st 2023. We will get back to you in regards to a deadline for the printed Program Book.)
Our program group, headed by Anna Davour, is putting the program together, a work that began in early autumn and will continue until the beginning of May. The group – which is fairly large and diverse – is partly brainstorming their own ideas and partly using input from members who have told us they have ideas for the program.
We are very happy to announce that the delegates of this years ESFS General Meeting have announced Konflikt as Eurocon 2023!
Membership registration has now opened, you can find more information as well as the registration form here.
More information in regards to travelling to Uppsala, accommodations, programming, as well as presenting guests of honour and sharing progress reports, will be made available in the upcoming weeks / months. Stay tuned!
It’s a truth universally acknowledged, that you should always pick a good Dead Dog Party to rope a tired con-com into arranging another big convention. Or at least, that’s how we do it in Sweden.
That’s why I jokingly suggested we do a Eurocon next, just as we were wrapping up Kontur 2017 in Uppsala. To be fair, I laughed and laughed and couldn’t even take myself seriously. The project just seemed too big at the time, and we were tired. And yet, a year later, I was in contact with the municipality and looking into potential venues, should we want to venture into the world of Eurocon bids and planning.
And suddenly, were here. It’s been a difficult and unusual year on a global level, but today marked the opening of Eurocon 2021 in Fiuggi. Tomorrow, we present our bid for Eurocon 2023, Konflikt, at the European Science Fiction Societies General Meeting.
In the meantime, we hope everyone else at this years Eurocon (who aren’t worried about winning bids) have an amazing time. Hope to see you all in Uppsala! ____________________________________________________________________ Nahal Ghanbari Convention Chair
