Time for RetCon 2020!

On Saturday 26 September 2020 we open the doors to our fourth Transformers convention, at the hotel Good Morning+ in Helsingborg, Sweden.

Our programme isn't finalized yet, but we are working hard to bring you the best possible programme, with something for just about everyone. There will be a celebrity guest, toy vendors, quizzes, competitions, activities, panels, and a lot more!

We have two guests of honour this time: the voice actor Garry Chalk and the writer James Roberts, who will be on site for RetCon all of the main convention day, and will tell us about their work.

The convention is held at hotel Good Morning+ Helsingborg.

Some important details:

The primary language of the convention is English. Depending on the number of attending children we might do some events (competitions in particular) in Swedish as well, but at the moment we can't make any promises. Children under 12 years of age come in for free (one child for every adult in the group).

The currency used at the convention is Swedish kronor, SEK. We advise attendees to get their money exchanged before the convention, and dealers to convert their prices to SEK. There are a number of currency exchange stores in Helsingborg, some of which are open at least part of Saturday, but it's still a wise idea to get the money exchanged in advance.

We do not have the capacity to handle card payments at the convention; only cash is accepted. Some of the dealers can also accept the Swedish mobile payment system Swish, and/or PayPal.

Registration deadline:

16 September.

Registration couldn't be simpler. Just fill in the number of attendees in your party and their ages, then the price will be calculated automatically!

By clicking 'Submit registration', you allow us to store your details until the convention is over. Your and your party's names are stored for identification at the convention so that we can give you access, and your email address so that we can contact you regarding your payment or urgent convention updates. Your country, if provided, is stored for statistics.
If you order the hardcover collection, your name and email address will also be shared with the publisher Ades Media, for the same reasons.

We accept payments via bank, Swish or PayPal. Bank payments are only accepted from countries using the IBAN system (most European countries plus some countries outside Europe). Attendees from other countries will have to pay over PayPal, or with cash at the convention.

Please note: Cancellations can only be accepted until 23 July 2020. After that date paid attendance fees will not be refunded, even if you can’t attend the convention (Members of Club RetCon will still receive their copy of the RetCon magazine however, if they pay the postage costs).

After you have submitted your registration you will be presented with a page with payment instructions. If you want to pay directly via PayPal, there is a button for that option. The payment instructions will also be sent out in an e-mail receipt, together with information on how you book hotel rooms at discounted prices at hotel Good Morning+ Helsingborg.

Contact information like e-mail addresses or regular addresses will only be used for contact purposes and will not be relayed to anyone outside the RetCon 2020 organization committee.
