BritizenCon will be on Saturday 21st April 2018 @ 10:00
The venue is the same as last year, but with a few improvements!
Radisson Blu Hotel, Chicago Avenue, Manchester Airport, M90 3RA
A finalised schedule will be available closer to the time.
10:00 – Bar and exhibition area open along with ‘sign up’ for the competitions!
10:30 – Competition heats start.
13:00 – Panels start in the main hall.
20:00 – BarCitizen will commence about this time at a local pub.
We are hoping to organise at least two Dev panels and there will be one or two other panels during the day. The event will finish off with competition finals on stage followed by the raffle and prize-giving.
With the exception of when the Dev panels are on, we plan to run the competitions and panels concurrently in two separate areas. This will allow attendees to watch whichever interests them more.
At BritizenCon this year we will, once again, be running the UK Dogfight Championship! We are also planning to run other types of competitions. The details of which game modes we will be running and how to enter will be available in the next few months.
We will continue to improve and expand this in later years.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the Alpha nature of the game and that crashes will most likely happen, we will deal with these as fairly and as promptly as we can on the day.
We have a small number of exhibitors tables available. If you wish to exhibit at the event, or use a table to showcase your Org or fan project, please contact us through our Contact Form.
There is no cosplay competition this year but the wearing of cosplay is encouraged if you wish to do so. BritizenCon is an Armistice Zone. Attendees must not bring any weapons or anything that looks like a weapon to the event.
Short Film Showcase
If you have a fan film (up to 10 mins) that you wish to be shown at BritizenCon, please put them on YouTube and send us a link through our Contact Form (See main webpage). Ensure that the video is either public or unlisted. All videos will be vetted before being shown.

Last year we had two BarCitizens, one on the Friday night – hosted by the talented youtube/twitch ‘Streamers’ you all know and love, and one on Saturday night following the main event. We are still working out the details for the main BC18 BarCitizen but we’re hoping the ‘Streamers’ will do the same this year
This is a ‘not for profit’ event and it all goes into making it the best Star Citizen experience you can have outside of Port Olisar!
Also of note, this event is not run by Cloud Imperium Games or any of its staff, though we are banking on them turning up in their droves just like last year. So, if you like to rub shoulders with the very people making this game, go buy your ticket now!!!
