Do I need a fursuit to attend Furrnion?

Of course not! You don´t need a fursuit to attend our Con. As long as you enjoy furry and meeting old and new people, that´s all you need!

Share

May I wear a cosplay instead of a fursuit to the Parade?

Sure thing! Come and have fun cosplaying! Just be aware that some activities may be restricted to fursuiters only. Also, if your cosplay includes weapons of any kind, make sure to check the Weapons Policy first. If you have any doubts, just ask!

Share

May I participate in the Fursuit Parade even if I’m not wearing one?

No; you are required to wear a fursuit, wether full or partial, to attend the fursuit parade. Only exception is any fursuiter assistant who´s help essential for the fursuiter during the parade.

If you have any doubts, send us a photo of your fursuit and we will let you know!

Share

May I record video or take pictures?

As general rule, yes, as long as you respect everyone´s intimacy and you do it in public areas or in areas where it hasn´t been specifically prohibited. We recommend you to check the dedicated section of the Con rules.

Share

What if I don’t wish for my pic to be taken?

It´s a public event, access to media will be restricted. If you are still concerned about your image being taken, get a fursuit! All joking aside, if you dont want your image to be taken, ask the photographer politely to delete them. For further information, please check the specific section of the Con rules.

Share

May I upload photos or videos I take during the con to my own website or social networks?

Yes, as long as it´s not for commercial purposes and as long as there is not written petition from anyone requesting his/her image to be taken out of them. If that was the case and to avoid legal conflicts, we advise you to not do so.

Again, we urge you to check the proper section off the Con rules for more information on this regard.

Share

I want to help, how can I?

If you want to volunteer during the Con, stay alert. We´ll be telling you how to apply for it.

Is there an age limit?

No minors are accepted this time. You must be 18 years of the age at the moment of the Con.

There is no maximum age to attend, though!

Share

Which personal documentation do you need from me?

For EU nationals, only your national ID is required. If you want to be extra sure, your Passport or driving license will do too.

For non EU nationals, your Passport is mandatory.

At any rate, your ID/Passport data and the ones you provided in your registration form must match. If they don´t, additional identity evidence may be required and access to the Con may not be granted. Under no circunstance making the registration in behalf of another person will be accepted.

Share

Can I cancel my registration?

You may cancel your reservation at any time, but registration fees are not refundable in any case. Furrnion needs funds to set up the Con. It´s not the same setting up a Con for 10 than 50, 100 or 500 guests.

You may, however, transfer your registration to someone else. For that, you must send us the data of the person attending in your place, and a means to contact that person to confirm the transfer. Wether you want that person to pay you the registration cost or make it a gift, it´s between you and that person.

Remember that, if you already have booked the hotel room, you must let them know your intent to transfer the room reservation to someone else, in the same fashion you have to do with us, or simply cancel the reservation according to the hotel terms.

Share

Can I pay for someone else’s registration?

Absolutely! But you must provide that person´s data in the registration form. Remember, at the Con registration that person´s ID data and his/her registration data must match perfectly.

Share

Can I register directly at the hotel?

Of course you can! but it is highly discouraged. Attendance fees are much higher than during the online registration due to logistic and organizational matters. Besides, there might be big delays due to the fact that preregistered attendees will always have priority.

If you also wish to stay in the Hotel to sleep, you are risking yourself to come to the Con and find out there are no rooms left at all, or that the ones available are very highly priced.

Just don´t risk yourself. It´s not worth it, really. Sign up as soon as you can, it´s the best way. There are a ton of reasons to register online:

  • If you pay it all up front, you have the rest of the time to save up and buy the coolest stuff at the Con!
  • The sooner you register, the cheaper it will be. We´re offering juicy deals for the early bookers!
  • By registering in advance you are contributing to make a brigther, shinnier and more spectacular Con!
Share

Which payment forms you allow?

You may use:

  • Credit Card
  • Wire transfer
  • Direct account deposit

Paypal is not accepted.

How many people can be in my room at any given time?

Access to any room is free as long as room guests agree and it´s temporary. Regarding staying the night at that room, only the persons registered for that room are allowed to do so. Hotel requires data of the number and identity of guests staying at each room, and will be crosschecked with Furrnion own database.

At any rate, presence of any number of people that exceeds the room maximum legal capacity is prohibited(i.e. if the maximum number of guests per room is 2, 3 or more people staying the night at that room is not allowed).

Everyone involved in the infringement of this rule, both official room guests and extra people, may be fined, or even expelled from the hotel and the Con.

Share

May I share my room?

When you register, you are just buy your attendance pass for the Con. Even if it´s highly recommended in order to live the full Con experience, you dont have to stay the night at the hotel.

If you wish to book a hotel room, you may choose, depending on room availability: single, double, triple, suites… Maximum number of guests per room is set by the hotel and it is not permitted to exceed it. Per Spanish law, all guests must display a means of personal identification at the check-in.

The reservation holder is the one who must pay the full price of the room, per hotel regulation. That means it´s his concern to collect each roommate´s share of the room price. Neither the hotel nor Furrnion will accept any liability in that process.

Share

What will you do with my personal data?

Furrnion will take your personal data under it´s custody, sharing them only with companies and institutions legally allowed and for organizational purposes only. Furrnion will never disclose them for commercial or distribution purposes.

How will I know that my registration is correct?

Reservation process comprises several stages:

Con Registration:

  1. Online registration. Here you will insert your personal data and choose the level of attendee you wish.
  2. Furrnion will send you a welcome email with a link to your invoice, along with payment instructions.
  3. If you have paid via wire transfer or direct deposit, we will monitor the transfer arrival every evening. Remember it may take up to 3 days for the transfer to take place. If you have used the online payment platform, we will receive it within the day.
  4. Once we have confirmed your payment, we wil send you the receipt and your attendee number. At the same time you will be granted access to your personal section in our site, where you’ll be able to perform all the operations meant to only attendees.
  5. Should your receipt fail to reach you and you are positive payment has taken place, please contact us and we will address this as soon as possible.

Hotel’s Booking (only needed if you wish to stay in the hotel):

  1. Once Registered for the Con, you’ll be able to request a room in the hotel.
  2. You will be provided with a link with a form where you’ll have to specify the type of room and the desired dates for checking-in and checking-out
  3. We’ll forward your request to the hotel, which will get in touch with you, either by phone or email, to settle with them directly the reservation.
  4. To guarantee your room, you’ll have to give them your credit card details, but the payment itself will be done at check-out time in the way you chose at that moment.
  5. Cancellation of a room can be done up to June 19th 2019 without fees. Later cancellations are subject to a cancellation fee.
  6. Only one room’s reservation per person will be allowed.
  7. You are the only responsible of the payment with the hotel. I.E. if you book for a four-persons room, you’ll have to settle the deal privately before or after the con with your room mates. To avoid misunderstandings and uneasy situations with them, we recommend you to get their part in advance.
