Scotiacon 2023 is scheduled to be the eleventh instance of the Scotiacon convention, to be held 3-6 February 2023 at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow in Glasgow, Scotland.[1]

The theme of the convention is "Game On!", a celebration of all things gaming-related, regardless of whether it be board games, video games, or any other variety of game.

Registration[edit]

Full pricing details[2] and the opening date of registration were announced on 20 August 2022.[3] Registration options for 2023 are the same as in previous years, with attending only and residential options, both of which can be upgraded to "Sponsor" (which includes a Sponsor Lunch for the first time in 2023) for an additional £80.

Prices have increased slightly since 2022, with a basic "attending only" ticket now costing £100, and residential tickets priced at £330, £380, or £450 per person,[4] depending on the room type chosen. Residential tickets include three nights' accommodation, a buffet breakfast each morning, and access to the hotel's "Club Moativation" fitness centre and swimming pool.

Registration opened at 19:25 British Summer Time (UTC+1) on 4 September 2022,[5] after an initial issue with DNS propagation, and those who attended Scotiacon 2022 were able to reuse their account to speed up the registration process.

Guest of Honour[edit]

On 24 September 2022, it was announced that the Guest of Honour for the convention would be UK-based artist Lapres.[6]

Charity[edit]

On 20 December 2022, it was announced that the convention had chosen to support Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Centre as their charity for 2023.[7]
