Pomathon (Birmingham, United Kingdom, September 8th, 2018)
2018's second UK event, Pomathon, is to be held at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre. Here are some of the latest exciting updates for this SOLD OUT event:

All people who managed to purchase a ticket to the private screening of Kingsglaive (held at the Electric Cinema on September 9th, the day after KupoCon) shall receive a copy of an exclusive artwork poster by the talented Fiveonthe. Kingsglaive cast members are also planned to be in attendance during the screening.



Additionally, KupoCon have now revealed that by NEo Liu's ‘Calling for Rain’ (the catchy song from Kingsglaive which became the conga-line song during KupoCon's evening celebrations) is to be performed live by NEo Liu during Pomathon's evening celebration!

Just when we thought that the evening celebration couldn't get any better than the masquerade ball which had already been planned (complete with Venetian-style chocobo masks for all premium ticket holders). It is set to be a blast!

We hope to see you there!

'Project X' (London, September 21st 2019)
Get your diaries out! The rather mysteriously named 'Project X' (a working title, we suspect) is being planned. It has now been confirmed that this event will take place a year from now in London (venue to be announced at a later date).

What could 'Project X' imply? We wonder....

Anyone interested? Let us know!

Additionally, quite a lot of FFF members are heading to The Wee Pom (Glasgow, January 26th).

In addition to updating the first post, here are some recent event updates:







Port Pom (Vancouver, November 16th 2019)


There are still tickets left for the next Canadian event at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront, Vancouver, Canada.

Fancy seeing some of the FFVII Remake voice actors? Thought up a new recipe? Good! John Bentley (Barret in FFVII: Remake) Briana White (Aerith in FFVII: Remake) and Adam Croasdell (Ignis, FFXV) are all now set to attend!





For details and tickets follow this link:

EGXFOn1WsAEAwfI.jpg


Freepom (Glasgow, February 15th 2020)
Freeeeeepoooommm!

If you have a brave heart, you might be interested in the next Scottish event! This will be held at the Hilton, Glasgow, Scotland.

Tickets have not long been released so if you want to guarantee a place at this event, it is suggested that you grab one soon to avoid disappointment.

So far John Bentley (Barret in the FFVII: Remake) has been confirmed as a special guest and he seems very excited. Another guest announcement is
expected this month.



The evening event (ticket purchased separately) is FFXII themed and is titled The Big Band Basch. We're promised bunnies (Viera), or maybe the hope is that people take things in that direction... What little we know about this curious plan so far is that it is to be a semi-formal party and people are encouraged to dress in 1920s and 1930s fashion... They are also hoping to get a 'Big Band'.


For details and tickets, please follow this link:


-

Le Pom.jpg


Le Pom (Montreal, April 4th 2020).
Another Canadian event, this time hosted in Montreal at Montréal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel, 800, Place Leigh-Capreol, Dorval, Québec. It is set to be the largest KupoCon in North America so far!

We don't know much other than that but updates are to be expected when KupoCon has wrapped up other events.

Tickets will go on sale on November 5th 2019!

For more information, please see:
