UK Games Expo will remain on board as sponsors of AireCon. We're so grateful for the support, advice and generosity of the UKGE team.

It's great to be involved in a community that is so friendly and helpful, and UKGE are a great example of that. Before I get too smushy, you'd better go read the press release...oh dear, I appear to have something in my eye.

I've taken the plunge and booked a 3 day ticket.
It will be my first EVER games con and I'll be on my own, so please be gentle!

Hi Tim,

Thanks for choosing AireCon as your first Games Con

Playing games is the focus, so that should definitely be something you can do!

We plan on having games you can sign up to play with others, and an area where you can go along to meet up with other gamers.

If you have any questions or anything don't hesitate to ask, or you can drop us an email; hello@airecon.uk

Latest plans!

We're pleased to announce that Geeknson will be coming to AireCon 4 and bringing some of their fancy tables. Keep an eye out in January for our competition where you'll get a chance to win a 2-hour slot to play at one of these VIP tables with up to 3 friends

We can confirm that AireCups will still be available for AC4 - just buy one of these mugs and you'll get tea and coffee at the discounted price of just 50p a cup!

More traders are to be confirmed, it's going to be a great event, over 100 people have already got their tickets, treat yourself this christmas! www.airecon.uk/tickets

Possible server problems over xmas, maybe? I'd email them. Just checked and my email came through within minutes. I suspect someone will pick up on it in this forum, too.

Put it down to the season. These folks are volunteers so maybe just a well earned break. There was activity on their facebook page as recently as 20.12. I am sure you will hear.

Will certainly be coming to this, just got to decide if doing as a weekend trip or just a day visit.

Budgetary restraints and EASTERCON the month after suggest that it will be a day trip however.

I booked my hotel for this in mid November with an option to cancel but haven't got tickets yet. Now I'm concerned it's getting bigger and will be like UKGE. My first convention was UKGE 2016, I sent my first 7 or 8 hours there alone and didn't find a single game to join, the only flag I saw was the one I was carrying.

Having found myself doubting whether Airecon is worth attending alone I find

"We welcome groups of all sizes as well as catering for individuals with our 'AireFlags', if you see one of these at a table, there's a game that needs more players!".

so a bit of clarification would be appreciated.

I did see Tim's post earlier in this thread and have sent a geekmail.

Hey Paul,

We're nowhere near the size of UKGE, we're expecting about 500 individuals, UKGE gets somewhere in the region of 7000*

We do anything we can to get people playing with others, especially if they have come on their own. You can expect all of the following;
AireFlags - Use one of these to attract other people to a game you'd like to play, or if you see one it means 'more players welcome'.

GameSeekeers area - this is an area where you can meet other gamers that are looking for a game. We are hoping to have it manned by one of our AireCrew who can run short games whilst waiting for other players to turn up, and try and match people up to play a game together.

Game Board - Where you can post a game you'd like to play, or look at what others want to play and sign up to it. It'll have a scheduled start time, just meet back at the board at the scheduled time.

Events - We tend not to have seminars and such, but run a series of events that encourage interaction and lots of laughs!

Dinner - We are currently negotiating with local restaurants to host a crowd of us for a meal, everyone and anyone is welcome to join, but spaces may be limited.

Ambassadaires - These are volunteers whose specific task is to make sure you're having a great time! If you're looking for a game or not sure about something, just go and speak to one of them.

Hope that helps and hopefully we'll see you in March!
Mark

*attendance numbers are recorded higher as they count 1 person that attends all three days as 3 for attendance, hence why those numbers say about 15000, the equivalent for AireCon will be about 1200!

Wish I could get to WorldCon, but the flights were too expensive and so were the ferries for the drive :-(.

Still EasterCon and the UK Games Expo will be great and a day trip to Airecon will be fun too.
