What is this project all about?

We want to organize the first brony convention in Germany with about 400 guests. We plan to offer, among others: Cosplay shows, workshops on drawing and custom ponies, fanfiction reading, art auction, sales booths of all kinds. As a highlight, we have an actual gala planned for Saturday! And to top it all off, we got a couple of guests of honor planned with their own ideas in store.

The convention takes place in a youth hostel in Stuttgart. The visitors can stay overnight with full board. The main hall will host all the big events - Small rooms will feature side activities and tables for the vendors.

We are proud to announce some of our guests of honour:

SweBow - Head of the anticipated "Legends of Equestria" MMORPG, SweBow will present the game live at the Gala and give insight behind the scenes.

Mr. Poniator - You might have seen one of his episode summaries! Combining Flash animation skills and a good sense of humour, he puts a new twist on your favorite MLP episodes. You can also expect that he has something prepared for the Gala.

KeepOnRockin'Brony - The Neighterlands have more to offer than tulips and windmills. KeepOnRockin'Brony will rock the Gala with DnB and more!

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

We want to give European fans of the show the opportunity to meet new friends from all over the continent, enjoy fun activities together and get an insight into brony culture.

Everypony's invited who is enthusiastic about the show and wants to spend an awesome weekend with other bronies and famous members of the community!

Why would you support this project?

By supporting the project you ensure that the convention will take place and becomes a success. You can also get exclusive deals that are offered nowhere else!

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

The money supports the general funding of the convention and will make the whole event about 20% cooler. The additional income by crowdfunding can be used for more guests of honour, high quality stage equipment, decorations or other improvements.

Who are the people behind the project?

The convention is organised by the club Bronies e.V. (German "Verein"). We are a group of very enthusiastic and hardworking fans who put a lot of time and effort into this project. Our homepage: http://verein.bronies.de/
