Terminus sounds amazing/a once in a lifetime opportunity, but I just haven’t got the money. It sucks cause I’m so close to it, geographically.

What about some events in little Norway? It never comes anything to Norway, but the most of the fans (without me) are not that hard core when it comes to Harry Potter. I guess England is not that far away….

I am really looking forward to Terminus.

Thanks for the last minute update for Convention Alley. We really appreciate the mention!

For those thinking the events are expensive, take a look at what’s included. Lots of formal programming and other fun events. For Convention Alley, all meals and a copy of the conference proceedings as well. Think about what it costs to host an event. Even when all the staff are volunteers, it’s not cheap to provide the best experience possible. I give kudos to all the volunteers who manage to make these events successful and all the sites like this one that help promote those events!!

Sounds like so much fun. The prices seem very reasonable. Have a great time to all those that get to go!!

Avatar Image says:

:( There are never any HP events in The Netherlands

Avatar Image says:

@Siri: I too wish there would be HP events in Norway. And wizard rock shows! I guess the UK isn’t that far away, but it would be cool nonetheless…

I really wish I could go to Portus and Terminus, but economy and not least geography seems to be against me. Why does Norway and the US have to be so far apart? Oh well… For everyone who is going: Have a great time!

Avatar Image says:

I CANT WAIT FOR TERMINUS!!! going to be amazing and i cant wait to meet all the people i have met online. so excited

Avatar Image says:

how to we get hp conventions in Australia? we have hardcore harry potter fans… :( have fun to whoever is going.

Avatar Image says:

I wish there was one in Singapore too! I guess we are too small for you guys . . . Enjoy, to whoever’s going!

Avatar Image says:

Woohoo! Accio here I come! So excited that Wizard Rock has made it to England _

Avatar Image says: Why are we so deprived of Harry Potter events in Australia? It makes me so sad...Avatar Image says: Very nice site!
