People Needed!

A few lovely people are needed to help at the reception desk during BiCon, and a few gophers as well. It’s a fantastic way to help out BiCon and the bi community during the event, and there’s no need to worry if you don’t know what to do: there’ll always be experienced people on hand, and the BiCon team will be around if you need help. The rota is was viewable online as an Excel spreadsheet, and all you have to do to sign up is email Katie (email address removed) telling her which shifts you’d like to volunteer for and which job you’re happy to do.

Remember to check the programme first to make sure there’s no workshop on that you really want to attend at the same time as the shift you’re offering to do.


Due to cancellations, we have a few single standard rooms available. Please email Elizabeth at email address removed if you’d like to change your booking from non-residential to single standard and she will provide you with an updated cost. First come, first served.

Also, please remember that due to the structure of the accommodation buildings, there are no self-contained flats this year, and the rooms are more like hotel rooms with shared pantries or kitchenettes. Some buildings also have common rooms. We are also sharing the accommodation buildings with other groups. Therefore, the venue is unable to group set numbers of BiCon attendees together. However, if you would particularly like to be near a few people you can e-mail Elizabeth at email address removed and she will do her best negotiations with the venue. Requests need to be submitted before Friday 5th July. Priority will be given to requests linked to access requirements.

We know that many of us will miss the flat system, but this is an opportunity for us to meet new people and make new friends!
