Hypecon was originally born out of an idea by the Hyvinkää Youth Services’ Onigiri and Warhammer clubs, to organise a small event for hobbyists. The biggest themes in the event were anime and games (miniature games, Magic: The Gathering, etc.) but other interests such as role-playing games were also represented.
The contents and the character of the event comes from the event-goers themselves; the planning takes place in social media, especially Discord and everyone is welcome to take part regardless of age or location! In addition to the open planning group, a group of volunteers, also known as the “conitea”, has been formed to handle different responsibilities in the event organising. We are always looking for more enthusiastic people to join us. If you are interested in taking part in organising Hypecon, you can contact us by e-mail: email@example.com.
Hyvinkää Youth Services take part in organising the event, allowing us to keep the event free and open for all ages.
