IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT FROM BRISTOLCON COMMITTEE

June 23rd, 2020 · No Comments

We have been monitoring the developing Covid-19 situation closely. In particular we have been following the advice from Public Health England (PHE) and the government, and how that will impact our planning and our members. Our primary concern is ensuring the health and wellbeing of our members and all involved, and even with a relaxation in restrictions it would not be possible for us to offer the convention that you know and love. 

Regrettably, we have now had to take the difficult decision to postpone BristolCon this year. 

The good news is that we have formally moved the event to Saturday October 30th 2021 at same place, the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel, Bristol. We would like to thank the hotel for their help and support in this. Further good news is that Anna Smith Spark and Adrian Tchaikovsky have both kindly agreed to be our Guests of Honour for this later date.

We will be in touch with all of our members regarding membership options. As you can appreciate, we are working hard behind the scenes to make everything go as smoothly as possible for everyone, so please be patient with us while we sort things out.

For those who have already booked rooms at the hotel for 2020, please contact the hotel directly. Click here for their statement on Coronavirus and Bookings Terms and Conditions. Please note that their current deadline for hotel room changes is 31stAugust 2020.

Panel suggestions for the 2020 BristolCon will automatically be carried over to the 2021 event. Please do not stop sending them in. We would love hear your wonderful ideas.

To sum up, we’re still here, working to provide a fabulous BristolCon in October 2021. We look forward to seeing you there.
