‘Hello everyone, its me Hunter, your chairman. I have some good news and I have some bad news. The bad news is that unfortunately one of our sponsors has folded, and as such, are no longer able to afford the event space that we hoped for, and planned for.
The good news is that we have found an alternative almost immediately. I have done significant calling around right before EF, and during, and been in contact with ‘Outsite’, which is a local LGBTQ+ community and they have decided to grant us their space. To serve part as a dancefloor, a gather place and in general just during the day the a meetup space.
Not only this, but thanks to them we have been able to secure a sponsorship from LG33, which also looks out for rights in this community, and with that money we are better able to support our staff and artists. This space is only a minute’s walk out from the hotel – it’s directly opposite. Even has a nice little bridge which dually serves as a photo-op.
I hope, gracefully, for your understanding as this is our first convention and our first attempt at making something like this work in the Netherlands. Something to note and something to be proud of, is that our first attendance number is already much higher than any other first-timers in furry history.
With this, I hope to see you in a month’s time, Your Chairman, Hunter’ ——-End of transcript
This message was brought to you by the AFn team in the spirit and heart of honesty and transparency.
The Hotel itself, its lounge and your ability to suit in and around the Hotel is not affected. This is entirely about the space we give panels in and the space we dance in. The dealers den is unaffected. The DJ setlist is unaffected. (which we’ll release the coming week!) Please voice your concerns so we may address them!
Meet our mascot, Vivienne (‘Viv’)! A sassy and loud party animal! With her Aardwolf genetics, she can give herself quite the mohawk that will gather all the attention, if she hasn’t already gotten that in any other way. She’s excited to see you at our con!
The Alfurnative — A brand new furry convention in South-Holland, The Netherlands!
I just had to share this amazing artwork The Alfurnative had created to highlight their staff.
The first in our Meet-The-Staff series: Meet Mylunee, our very own head of the Dealers Den! They’ll be replying to your filled out forms and questions regarding the ‘Den, and have experience from other conventions in the runnings of one!
Meet @SwitchMegaWolf , our Social Media and PR lead! He’ll be active in our social channels and representing us on other conventions, replying to your questions and handling contacts that approach us from outside the convention teams!
Meet @DibsRazell — well known for his organisation of @DutchFurdance — whose insight and assistance will run through our event space and dealers den, part of our security and welfare teams!
The original posts do not mention who is the artists that created such beautiful works. But whoever you are “How much do you charge for a commission?”
The Alfurnative is a brand new fur con that will be taking place Sept 30 to Oct 2, 2022 in Delft, Netherlands It is so new that there only outlets are Twitter and Telegram.
They are using what I assume is site like EventBrite for their registration and Hotel Bookings
This is the first time we’re trying a more traditional ”Hotel Con” in The Netherlands. Any support you give us will directly go to running the con and planning for future ones! We offer you a bottle opener at 10 euro, a signed poster at 30 euro and a T-shirt at 60! –The Alfurnative Team
