We are pleased to announce further details of the 2017 VATSIM convention in London, UK.
When will the 2017 VATSIM convention take place?
The convention will begin on the morning of Saturday 29th July 2017 and conclude in the afternoon of Sunday 30th July 2017. Convention events will take place on both days. An (optional) organised dinner will be arranged for Saturday 29th July 2017 in the evening. There will be an informal gathering prior to the convention on evening of Friday 28th July 2017.
Where will the convention take place?
The convention will be held at the Holborn Bars events space in the heart of London. This is a grade II listed building from the Victorian era and will facilitate us to have a great weekend together. It houses small spaces for informal gatherings and relaxing, as well as the rooms we will use for presentations. On-site catering means everything is under one roof and available for us to use across the weekend.
How much will the convention cost?
The ticket price is expected to be GBP99, and will be confirmed at the time that tickets go on sale. This includes entrance to the two days of our event - full of interesting and informative talks and group sessions from leading experts in aviation and flight simulation, refreshments throughout both days and a selection from a hot and cold lunch offering.
The optional conference dinner on Saturday evening will be communicated at a later date, the exact details of which depends on the numbers attending.
When can I buy a ticket?
We're busy putting together the final parts of our website right now - we anticipate that those who are interested would be able to purchase a ticket in the coming two weeks.
Who should attend?
VATSIM conventions are open to all members from across the globe - we specifically are designing a programme for grassroots and established members alike (both controllers and pilots) to have a fruitful and interesting experience. We feel that some of the most enjoyable moments at these conventions are when members from across the world get to meet in person and socialise. The venue is wheelchair accessible and fitted with hearing induction loops.
I have more questions, concerns or need specific information
We look forward to communicating further details regarding tickets and accommodation very soon.
