UPDATE: Aerosoft discount for attendees, ticket sales deadline, Saturday evening plans and more programme items announced


We are delighted to announce that Aerosoft have very kindly offered to provide an exclusive benefit to all attendees of Connexion 2017. Everyone who attends our event will receive a 20% discount code for use one of two highly anticipated upcoming projects: the CRJ 700/900 or the A330. This is a very kind offer from Aerosoft - we would like to thank them for supporting our event.

Ticket Sales

As you have probably seen, tickets are currently available for sale via our website (connexion.vatsim.net). There are a limited number of tickets available and we will be closing tickets for sale on Monday 8th May at 1200z. Please ensure you book before this date if you wish to attend. If you have begun booking a ticket and not completed payment or have not received an email from us containing your ticket details, please visit our website connexion.vatsim.net to finalise your booking in advance of this date.

Saturday evening dinner

Following an enjoyable and enriching day of convention content, we will enjoy an exclusive garden party in a nearby hotel (a short walk from the convention venue). Here we will have plenty of time for socialising and a BBQ buffet. We will sell tickets for this part of the event sometime closer to the date of the event. You will be able to purchase tickets for non-VATSIM members so as to be able to bring them along too.
