Over two years ago I attended ZjAva – my last convention before the pandemic started. Since then I managed to participate in many cons but I always did it online. Yet Luxcon Eurocon 2022 was the first from a new era for me. I am back to attending in person. Of course I plan to be at some more virtual/hybrid events but I hope to visit some more in-person ones too!
For many years I had been thinking that Eurocon is a very important convention. Still for quite long time I had the incorrect impression of why it is so. Its importance is not related to the size of the con – nor to prestige it gives. The strength of Eurocon lies in the very centre of its idea – to share the „fandom way” with fans from other European countries. Although U-con (Eurocon 2017) was quite small, it allowed for the fans to meet and share their interests.
