Why Should I Go To BritizenCon?

BritizenCon 2016 was a great success. There was over 20 devs from Foundry 42 in Manchester and Brian Chambers flew over from Frankfurt especially. The highlight of the event was the two panels. The Community Panel had BoredGamer, Myre, SuperMacBrothers and DoublarThackery talking about how they got into Star Citizen and creating community content. The Dev Panel had John Crewe, Robbie Elms, Declan Troughton and Will Maiden, Designers from the Manchester studio, with Brian Chambers, answering questions about design that had be posed by the community.

The Community and Dev Panels will return for BritizenCon 2017 (The panellists will be announced closer to the date) as will the raffle and a showcase of fan-films and cosplay. In addition to this, we will be having the first iteration of the UK Dogfight Championship. This will be a small tournament of one-versus-one Arena Commander matches. If successful, we will expand this part of the event in future years.

We have invited the Devs from Foundry 42, Manchester, and, once again, expect a number of them will attend. There will be plenty of time in the breaks to meet them and other Star Citizens and to grab a drink at the bar.

If we raise enough money beyond our Crowdfunding goal, we will be able to hire the equipment to record good quality videos as well as livestream the event itself.

The Venue

BritizenCon will, once again, be at the Radisson Blu hotel, Manchester Airport. It has excellent access via road, rail and air.

Update on e-tickets and emails: 8th Jan 2017
Some of you will have received your e-tickets by now. These have been taking longer than expected to send out. For about half the contributors the full name was not recorded only the email address, so we will be requesting these details via email for those that this affects and we can then send out the remaining e-tickets. Those of you expecting an email regarding T-shirt and hoodie sizes, these should be out in the next few days.

Thank you for bearing with us.
We raised an amazing £3,257 towards the cost of running BritizenCon 2017. This is fantastic! Thank you for your support.
Those expecting rewards will be contacted by the 8th January 2017 via email with a request for further information, such as T-shirt and hoodie sizes. E-tickets will also be sent out by the same date. After then, the remaining tickets will be made available to purchase on this website between now and the day before the event, or until they sell out.
