Octocon is utterly delighted to announce that as part of our 30th birthday celebrations, we will be welcoming our very first chairs as Fan Guests of Honour:
Helen and Philippa Ryder
Read more about them in their own words:
Octocon’s programme typically includes panel discussions, workshops, presentations, and chats with guests and other fans (on specific topics), as well as special events such as book launches and demonstrations.
Our surveys are now open for you to:
Apply to be a programme participant for Octocon 2020 (Google form) – this also includes an area for suggestions
If you apply to be a participant, you probably won’t hear back from us until mid to late April at the earliest. If you don’t hear back by the end of May, please do nudge us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggestions for programme items are added to our large pot of ideas, and we’ll be in touch if there’s anything further we like to know (for example, if you offer to run a workshop).
Octocon strives to have a varied and lively programme of events, panels, workshops, talks and chats, centred around our guests and programme participants, with typically between 50 and 60 hours of items over the weekend.
Putting together the programme requires a team of enthusiastic, creative people, who are willing to contribute ideas and energy and a couple of hours a week. For 2020, we want to expand our team to make our programme better than ever!
Then email email@example.com and let us know you’re ready, willing and able!
The Octocon 2020 membership prices have been fixed for online registration:
Buy FIVE memberships at the same time and pay NOTHING for the cheapest!
Supporting memberships can be upgraded to Adult Attending, Concession, Teen or Friend at any time in advance of the convention weekend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
OTE: If you have already purchased a membership and are due a refund (either as a Teen or because the Concession rate was higher for a short time), we will be getting in touch shortly. If you haven’t heard from us by the end of the year, please email email@example.com .
Membership prices at the door will be higher. Details will be published closer to the convention.
Octocon returns for its 30th birthday! Friday 9th to Sunday 11th October 2020 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Blanchardstown, Dublin, with Guest of Honour Michael Carroll.
