FarmCon 18: English language now available. Visit us!

Hey guys,

lots of you asked us why the presentations at FarmCon are held in German and if there is any chance for English speakers to understand anything.

Well, good news everyone: We've teamed up with a professional translator and visitors who speak English will receive a headset (for the event only, it's not a gift) to listen to the presentations in English.

No idea what a FarmCon is? Let me tell you a little something about it:


FarmCon, the Farming Simulator community event will come back in 2018 and we are following the invitation of our guest speaker Michael Horsch. At FarmCon 18, we will all meet directly at the HORSCH FITZentrum in Schwandorf on 14 and 15 July 2018.

Mark the date in the calendar and get tickets for the reduced early bird rate of €10, which even includes lunch on Saturday.

There are lots of talks, panels and workshops about modding and then there is the LS19, which you can ask us about at FarmCon - and just like FarmCon 16 you will get some exclusive insights.

As a special supporting programme, there will also be a factory tour on site and we have a few other ideas - but more about this later on.

To help you find a room for the night, we've picked out a few hotels in the area and blocked rooms. Call there, enter the password "FarmCon" and you will get access to it.

Bus transfer:

From all these hotels a free bus transfer to and from FarmCon will be available on Saturday and Sunday. So if you arrive on Friday evening or arrive at the hotel on Saturday morning, you are welcome to use this service. The exact departure time is still to be announced, but will probably be 2 hours before the start of the FarmCon, so that you will arrive on time, but can also have a look around a bit earlier.

The bus from Roding will also stop at the train station in Schwandorf (approximate time will be announced).

Important: When purchasing a FarmCon ticket, please indicate whether you will use the shuttle bus or whether you will come directly to the FITZentrum by car. This is NOT a reservation and the bus driver will not count if everyone is there but it helps us to estimate how many buses and parking spaces are needed.

Teams:

If you come in a group with friends, you can register a team at Eventbrite. We may use this to allocate you the same time slots during the factory tours.

Football:

As this (the only possible date for us) falls on the weekend of the final match of the World Cup, we will make sure that the match for third place on Saturday at 4 p. m. and the final on Sunday at 5 p. m. will be shown live. On Sunday we will adjust the program accordingly so that no one misses something essential, e. g. when we go home at noon to be home in time for the final. But if you want to play it safe, you can stay in the FitZentrum and join some of us, Horsch and friends from the community in a private setting after the actual event!

More details will follow but mark the date in the calendar!
