About this guide
BiCon is an annual gathering for bisexual people, their friends, partners and anyone with a supportive interest in bisexuality.
When you first arrive at BiCon come to the registration desk which is on floor 1 of the student central building. This is where you can collect your badge. You will need this to get into most parts of BiCon.
After you have registered you need to go to the security office at The Green to pick up your room keys if you are staying on site. The security office is open 24 hours a day and is located in The Orchard at The Green (see the accommodation map).
You need to tell us in advance if you need a parking permit for your car. You can only park for 15mins in the car park outside Student Central. Let us know if you have a car outside and we will accelerate your registration and get you your parking permit.

Hello and Welcome!
Whether this is your first BiCon or your twenty-first, we're glad to have you here. This year's BiCon is particularly special, as it's the 30th time the event has run. We're told that a thirtieth birthday is generally regarded as culturally significant, so we intend to make BiCon 2012 an Exceptional event.
BiCon has changed a lot over the last three decades, but the secret to its success remains the same - it’s the people that make BiCon great. In 1984 people gave time, energy and resources to make the event happen and the same is still true. Who could have known then that BiCon would grow to
the great event that we enjoy today? On behalf of the community, we’d like to say thank you to all 30 organising teams, and raise a glass to the next 30 years.
