Venue & Accomodation
We’re pleased to announce that Kokoro-con will be held at the Crowne Plaza Nottingham - a luxurious 4-star hotel in the centre of Nottingham. Plenty of rooms of varying sizes that can tailor perfectly to the different events we’ll be holding over the weekend, this stylish venue also has plenty of spaces to relax and socialise with some down time between panels.
The hotel has everything you could possibly need over the weekend (including WIFI, a spa and pool if you’re staying on site), but if you’d rather venture outside of the hotel for food you’ll find lots of places to eat within a few minutes walking distance.
There are over 210 rooms for guests to stay in, each with different option to include such as Bed & Breakfast. for more info please visit The Crown Plaza Website HERE
For those who do not wish to stay on-site, there are many other hotels nearby which should suit everyone's needs, though please be aware, if you are staying off-site then the 24 hour bar is only available until 2am
