What is Euro Pride Con?
Euro Pride Con is a gathering of fans of LGBT fiction and media
The convention itself will offer the chance to fans of LGBT fiction to meet authors and publishers, discuss their favourite books, trade ideas, and generally hang out with a group of like-minded people.
In the USA, there’s several LGBT fiction conventions that run through the year, however there’s only one in the whole of Europe (the brilliant UK GLBT Fiction Meet) so Euro Pride Con will be the first LGBT fiction meet in mainland Europe! Euro Pride Con will bring together writers and readers from all over Europe to get together over one fantastic weekend.
Munich is a beautiful city and a great choice for the first year of the convention. It’s fairly central in Europe and has an international airport. The convention will be held at the Sheraton Arabella Park, a beautiful hotel right in the centre of the city.
What does the schedule look like?
We’re still currently hammering out the finer details of the schedule, although we already have guest speakers in RJ Scott and Jay Bell, who’s book Something Like Summer is being adapted into a movie.
At Euro Pride Con we're hoping to offer something slightly different during the day. Instead of front-led panels, we’ll be hosting a series of interactive workshops on a range of different topics. These workshops will be led by any combination of author, reader, reviewer and publisher, which we hope will expose all attendees to a range of different thoughts, opinions, and viewpoints.
If you’d like to be involved in a panel please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – spaces are filling up quick, so don’t wait too long!
The convention will start on Saturday, however, for anyone who arrives in the city early there will be activities planned in the city on Friday afternoon.
Attendees at Euro Pride Con have two options:
SPECIAL PRICE! 150 EURO IF YOU REGISTER BEFORE 31 JANUARY 2015!
Attendees will have access to all workshops and events over the course of the weekend.
Register as a featured attendee
SPECIAL PRICE! 160 EURO IF YOU REGISTER BEFORE 31 JANUARY 2015!
Featured attendees can be authors, bloggers, cover artists, editors, or anyone who would like to promote themselves and their work over the course of the weekend. Featured attendees will be given a spot at the signing on Sunday, the option to give out “swag”, will be featured on blogs and social media leading up to the event, and can take part in leading any of the workshops (subject to places being available).
All tickets include dinner on Saturday, which will be served Bavarian style in the hotel's Biergarten (weather permitting) and lunch on Sunday, as well as refreshments throughout the weekend.
