Åcon 9 is now opening hotel bookings. You will find instructions for how to reserve a bed on the Hotel info page. We have negotiated with the hotel and can offer the same rates as last year. The hotel will want your contact details and credit card number as a guarantee of the reservation. You will not have to pay until you get to the convention.

Go ahead and secure your bed right now, for a weekend with discussions of science fiction and fantasy with Emma Newman and all the other Åcon 9 members!


Guest of Honor announced

We are proud to announce that our Guest of Honor will be Emma Newman. Go read all about her on our GoH page.

Åcon 9 Q&A

When will Åcon 9 be, and other questions you might have.


Will there be an Åcon 9?


When will it be?

In 2018.

Why not in 2017? I don’t want to wait!

We hear you. But there’s this another little Finnish convention project that will occupy us in 2017. You may have heard about it. You should go. We will. And so will lots of other interesting people.

Besides, during the traditional Åcon weekend in 2017, we’ll be at Swecon. (You’re welcome to come hang out with us. Swecons are almost as much fun as Åcons!)

But you’ll be back in 2018? Promise?


Will you have a Guest of Honor?

Of course.

Will you tell me who they are?

Not quite yet. Soon. Stay tuned.

Can I join the convention?

Very soon.

So nothing to do yet but wait? Bummer!

Sorry about that. Won’t be long. Honest!
