• Convention Guide for 2015 - Worldwide Locations, Show Staff Attendance, and More!

    New version of this post coming on the 16th of January.
    More info here:

    With 2015 comes yet another armada of massive conventions covering just about every corner of the Earth.  Quite a few new ones are appearing on countries that previously only held smaller meetups. And joining them is the usual crew, with many continuing on from success in 2014 and earlier.

    This post follows the same style as our previous year, with a few extras. The Illustrious Q has been compiling up places for those looking to specifically meet show staff, which will all be linked from here for easy access and updated as more conventions announce things.

    We are also including conventions that haven't yet submit anything. If your convention falls into that category, feel free to follow the guide over here for getting yours updated with all the required information.

    Now go my minions! Bask in the glory that is pony conventions below the break.

Similarly, you could opt to use this space to advertise your organization's activities or as an exhibition for your little big project before the whole iberian brony community.

    You can request your stand by filling the form in our webpage. In there, you'll learn all the steps you need to follow. If you still have doubts, don't hesitate to ask us through our e-mail address.
