Multigenre Fan Convention Pyrkon in Poznań

Pyrkon 2013 – time and place


22-24 March 2013

Usually Pyrkon takes place on the first weekend of the spring. It is also going to be so this year.

The Convention starts on Friday at 3 p.m., but the participants are welcome in a bit earlier, at 12 o'clock. Those who visit us before 3 p.m. will be provided with a place to leave their luggage, and they will be able to use the Games Room where volunteers will help them with having a go at board games. Also, anyone willing to help is more than welcome, as there are plenty of things to be done right before we start!

The Convention area has to be vacated by 7 p.m on Sunday.


Poznań, Poznań's International Fair

Pyrkon 2013 will take place in four pavilions of the MTP Conference Center (Poznań's International Fair) and a nearby high school building:

For your convenience all the buildings are located nearby, creating a truly Fantastic Space. Furthermore, there are assigned areas for shows, displays, concerts and a food court. Pavilions 1, 7 and 14 will be open round-the-clock. An exact placement of the buildings can be seen on the Google map below.

The Convention area can be entered from two entrances - the west one from Śniadeckich street (main entrance), and the east one from Most Dworcowy (the Railway Bridge, just next to the railway station).

A description of every building can be found below.

There are a few shops (including ones open twenty-four-hours), ATMs, pharmacies and bars in the neighborhood of Pyrkon. In the booklet given to you when buying a ticket we will provide a map, which will allow you to find them all without further trouble.

Pavilion 5A:

This pavilion is designed only for sleeping. Showers will be available in a sanitary container, placed inside the pavilion.
