What is MalkieriCon?
MalkieriCon is the first European based Wheel of Time fan convention, currently based in Manchester, UK. It is a chance for fans who cannot attend conventions in the USA to meet and share their love for all things Wheel of Time.
The convention is about YOU as fans, meeting and sharing your love for this series in many interactive and fun ways!
Is registration open? And if so, when does it close?
Yes, registration is now open and will close in early August.
What are the dates and details for MalkieriCon 2023?
MalkieriCon 2023 will be held on September 9th & 10th at the Holiday Inn, 25 Aytoun St, Manchester, M1 3DT.
Will there be any activities happening on Friday 8th?
The committee is planning an informal event on the Friday night for those not arriving on Saturday which will include some early registration.
How much will it cost to attend?
Can I park at the hotel?
Regular tickets will be £75 and the T-Shirt option will be £95.
Digital tickets will be £20.
We have tried to minimise any price increase as much as possible.
Will there be a special room rate?
Yes, we have secured a small batch of rooms, (20), at a discounted price for you to book. The link can be found on the registration page alongside ticket sales.
The rate covers stays on the Friday night through until staying Sunday night at £139 per night per room and includes breakfast. (Staying all 3 nights would be £417 total.)
- How do I book the rate?
Click the link button, scroll to the booking section on the Holiday Inn page, and select the dates that you want from the range of September 8th - 11th. The room rate should be the only option that appears when you click search and will include MalkieriCon in it's description
- What happens if the link doesn't work?
Try it another device first. Some testers found it worked on mobile but not on their desktop. If it still isn't working feel free to reach out to us and we'll confirm if rooms are still available at this rate.
- It doesn't state that breakfast is included?
Even though it wont say on the booking page, breakfast is definitely included. We've had this checked from the hotel's side of a booking and it shows on their systems so have no fear!
- What happens if I miss out on this rate?
We have the option to negotiate for more rooms at a discounted rate, however we do not know what the cost will be as it will depend on when this happens and current room rates the hotel is offering at that stage.
- What is the cancellation policy for these rooms?
Parking is available at NCP Chorlton Street (M1 3FY) at a discounted rate of £20 per 24hours or £10 for day use (up to 12 hours). This NCP car park is open 24 hours.
How will COVID-19 risk be safely managed at the in-person event?
All attendees will be required to follow the current COVID regulations required by law at the time of the convention.
The current UK requirements can be found here
Will there be any special guests?
The committee is working hard to book some exciting guests and these will be confirmed and announced if this is possible.
Can my children attend MalkieriCon?

I am interested in volunteering to help at MalkieriCon 2023. How can I register for this role?
Fantastic! There is an option to put your hand up for this when registering. This is the best way to let us know. We will then reach out to volunteers in due course with more information.
I have another question that I don’t see here. How can I get in touch with the Planning Committee?
