Lavecon 2016 sponsored by EDTracker
16/17th July, Sedgebrook Hall Hotel, Northants, UK
We are planning to include Board Gaming, Live Roleplay Jugger matches, Cosplay, LAN Computer Gaming, Tabletop Roleplay, X-Wing Miniatures, Readings from Authors, Tournaments, Workshops, Demos and interactive activities, Oculus Rift, Q&A sessions, Talks, Panels, Special Guests and of course Elite Dangerous!
The full programme can be viewed here, click on the map for a larger version.
We have a lovely lounge where you can relax and play a board game or two, while enjoying complimentary tea or coffee (or if you prefer a drink or two from the bar).
The main room is where all the big talks, panels, readings and Q&As take place and in a side room a green-screen for fabulous photos of you in space! There will be a Lave Radio Podcast and a Panel and Q&A session with the lovely folks from Frontier Developments. We have some rooms for more detailed discussions, panels & talks.
There is a lovely room we are calling the Games Room… despite the fact there are lots of games in the other rooms… here you might find a Trader or two, room for X-wing miniature games, the Retro Lave corner, Docking Darts Challenge and find out how to play Jugger ( live combat game with swords).
Near to the entrance you will find the Artemis rooms, where we will have two Starship Bridge Simulators so you can have missions head to head against another player group… if you feel brave enough.
We are having a demo room where you can try out a few different pieces of kit including Oculus Rift.
Also the LAN, where you will find Games and tournaments to take part in even if you don’t have your own PC with you.
We also have a number of wonderful guests, especially the team from Frontier Developments.

And as a side note, if it is all too much and you need a quiet moment (although we do have a designated quiet room) there is the lovely swimming pool, spa and sauna.
