Rikon 2020 – Eurocon 2020 – Futuricon will be a virtual convention.
For a deep dive into the reasons and implementation method, check out this informative video prepared by Fox, the Futuricon con chair, or scroll to read a shorter summary.
In short, the global and local situations have led to Futuricon becoming a virtual convention. All of the programming will be fully online, realized using modern technologies and software solutions, and partly held live from a studio.
The programming team will contact all previously accepted sessions to see what the best course of action is to keep them for the virtual convention, and there will also be an additional call for speakers in July 2020.
All programming items pertaining to ESFS business – ESFS awards, future Eurocon site selection and presentations, will be fully handled online. Follow the ESFS website and our website for details and updates.
The convention will have a small, accessible price.
The price of Futuricon online, starting from Friday, 29 May 2020, is 10 Euro / 50 kuna. The price difference between Euro and kuna this time is because we want to make the convention as inclusive as possible, but having a price lower than 10 euro for international members is not viable because of banking and transaction fees.
Everyone who purchased their membership while it was 15 Euro / 90 kuna will be compensated for it during or after the convention weekend with a special virtual goody bag. Similarly, a virtual goody bag will be secured for those who purchased a supporting membership and do not become full members by the end of the convention.
All the details about pricing and purchasing the membership can be found in the section Membership Tickets.
There might be some opportunities for local fans to join us as the audience in our studio or simply to hang out in a lounge area, but we definitely do not recommend making travel and accommodation arrangements as there is no way to guarantee you will be able to physically participate.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you virtually,
Futuricon organizing team
