December is by far the Star Wars month of 2019 with the premier of Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. After the incredible success of Echo Base Charity Con 2017 it was a simple decision to return to Kinepolis Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, a modern and centrally located cinema. Echo Base Charity Con 2019 will again be making use of several rooms and spaces on the ground floor and the second floor. Besides that, the fantastic Theater 12, also located on the second floor, will serve as our Main Stage, where we will be having all of our panels, amongst others. On this page you can find all sorts of practical information about our location:
