Viencon shared venue is a go!

Posted on: April 16, 2018 at 11:14 am

Dear everyone,

Viencon Summer Festival 2018 will happen! That’s three days of cosplay, anime and geek related events and parties by Deshima Sounds! Afterparty at your cottage? So, mark your calendars for a weekend of fun.
The ticket booth will open as soon as possible and will stay open until we’re sold out. The tickets include the accommodation and they are €109,- per person, excluding tourist taxes for the accommodation.

So what’s different now? Now, we will share the venue with regular visitors. We’ve discussed the following: the park will be shared and the areas for the events will be restricted to Viencon visitors only. Viencon Cottages will all be on the same area of the park so you will only see the regular visitors at the swimming pool and caterering areas.

The venue’s house rules will apply during the regular hours. For example, it is not desired to eat at the restaurants in your swimwear or take large props to the swimming pool and catering areas (so leave your mecha swimsuit version at your cottage). Photo shoots in the swimming pool during regular hours are not allowed, but we have reserved the swimming pool after the regular hours for photo shoots and Deshima Sounds! The swimming pool is well lit, so if you wish to take photos in the evening, then it should be fine.
As for the earlier cancellations, we will refund you as soon as possible. The processing is manual, so please be patient.

Best wishes,

Viencon


News update: Shared Venue

Posted on: March 29, 2018 at 12:00 pm

Dear Fan,

As you may have read on our social media, that we are looking at the option of a shared park instead of a private park. We will still have private areas at the park for our activities and timeslots of the swimming pool where you can take pictures in your cosplay, as well a pool party at night!

As we can’t deliver what we promised, a private park. You can cancel your booking by emailing us till 5th of April, your Name & Order Number.

We are sorry for this turn of events.

Viencon.
