Dear HSFCon member,

Due to the large number of participants we expect at HSFCon, we recommend that you book your packed lunch and/or your dinner beforehand. You are not permitted to bring your own food and drink for use inside the hotel.

This is why we offer you this early opportunity to arrange your meals directly with the hotel. Payment is possible during the con itself by means of tokens that you can buy at the hotel reception (a packed lunch will cost 4 tokens and a hot meal will cost 7 tokens). The packed lunch is a standard selection, but for your hot dinner we offer you a choice of meat, fish or a vegetarian meal. You can
make your choice on the day.

You can make your reservation by sending an email to stating the following:
Number of persons:
Lunch Saturday – Yes/No
Hot dinner Saturday – Yes/No
Lunch Sunday – Yes/No
Hot dinner Sunday – Yes/No

Please note: if you do not book your meals beforehand, it is possible that you have to wait longer for you lunch or dinner due to the pressure of demand on the day itself.

Reservations for lunches and dinners can be made until 16 November 2021.
We thank you for your co-operation.

Staff and management Van der Valk Hotel Sneek

Note: a token costs € 3,00.


Want to be a dealer at HSFCon?
You can rent half a table in the dealers’ room from € 25!
Dealers come in three categories:

1. Commercial dealers
2. Established artists and authors
3. Artists and authors who wish to sell their own work

1 – Commercial dealers are dealers who own a shop or frequently sell their goods on markets. As a commercial dealer you can book a maximum of 4 tables at € 50.00 per table. Furthermore, each stallholder is required to buy a convention ticket, which grants you access to the entire convention.

2- Established artists and authors who bring enough merchandise to justify the use of a whole table. People who fall in this category can book a maximum of one table at € 50.00. Half a table costs € 25.00. Furthermore, each stallholder is required to buy a convention ticket, which grants you access to the entire convention.

3- Authors, artists and others who wish to sell their own work. No charge for a table. You tell us what you wish to put on sale and whether or not you can fill a whole table with it. You buy your own convention ticket, which grants you access to the entire convention. As a dealer in this category you pay half of the first € 100.00 you make (or € 50.00 if you are sharing a table) to HSFCon by way of table rent.

Anyone who falls in category 3 is free to switch to category 2, in other words to rent a table or half a table, so it doesn’t matter how much you sell. Category 3 is primarily meant for dealers who don’t expect to sell very much.

Coronavirus measures

Sad but true, covid is still among us. We are aiming to have a convention that is as safe as possible. That means we comply to all the then-valid restrictions imposed by the hotel and by the government. Despite the fact that many restrictions have been lifted recently, some others are still in place. You can read more about the current restrictions on the hotel and government websites.

Should the restrictions change again before HSFCon, we will change with them. Whatever comes, we will turn the weekend into a fantastic one.
