We invite you to TechFurMeet 2023 - the fifth anniversary of a rather special furry con. The origins of TFM date back to 2016. The theme of the then ZodiaCon (furry con - a gathering of people who feel somehow connected to animals) was cyberpunk. And Altair and Canus thought they could show attendees what the electronics really looks like. So they put together a workshop on basic electronics and Arduino programming. There was a lot of interest. It turned out that many furries are interested in technology and electronics. So the idea of doing a specific event that would be tech focused was born and in 2017 the first TFM was held. In 2021 and 2022, the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible to hold, but it's back in full force in 2023.
TechFurMeet 2023 will be held from Thursday, February 16th to Sunday, February 19th, 2023 in the Oáza srdce hotel, Horní Bradlo, near Pardubice, Czech Republic. It's the same hotel as in last years.
The hotel offers 34 two- to five-bed rooms, the total capacity is circa 100 beds. Most of the rooms have their own WC and bathroom, some rooms have their own bathroom but share a WC (yeah, we don't get it either...). All the public areas and one room are wheelchair accessible.
The public areas are numerous - two large event spaces and lots of smaller ones, giving us (well, YOU mainly) a lot of room for SIGs and other things. (Art show, hide-and-seek, hiding corpses...)
The consite is located in the lovely nature near the Seč dam, all part of the protected landscape area Železné hory (Iron mountains, how cool is that, eh?). Therefore besides having a cool name it has plenty of stuff to see.
