We have a number of Thank yous and links to Organisations who contributed to our event and who are generally supportive and brilliant. 

I mean firstly I want to say thank you to our volunteers, both those who usually volunteer at our physical event and those who have provided content for this year, you are all awesome. 

Lavecon is produced as a partnership between Lave Radio and HWS. It all started with Lave Radio and we are just very happy to be a part of it. 

Spidermind Games have been supporting and sponsoring Lavecon for a while now.  They produce excellent games and are wonderful people to work with. 

Then the two charities that we support:

Special Effect are an amazing organisation who help to make games and gaming accessible to disabled people. We love the work they do and are very happy to contribute in a small way. 

Ehlers Danlos Support UK is a charity very close to our heart. One of our organisers has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and although you can't always see it, the pain and fatigue that this condition causes has a huge influence on her life. She is very grateful for the support and ongoing research of EDS UK and this is our small way of saying thank you. 

Frontier Developments; Lavecon would be a very difficult event to run without the ongoing support of Frontier. They attend our events, make specific ship skins for us, donate prizes and even buy us a pint or two and most of all they are cheerful, friendly and always willing to stop and have a chat. 

Radio Theatre Workshops produce high quality audio drama....  I mean we are a little Bias because the lovely Chris Jarvis is also part of the Lavecon organising team.


HCS Voice Packs always attend our events, donate prizes and do fabulous fundraising for Special Effect. 

Newcon Press produce amazing fiction from wonderful authors and is totally worth checking out. 

Dark Nebula is a powerful context sensitive music system for VoiceAttack and Elite Dangerous which lets the player add their own music or use our professional quality bespoke music packs to replace Elite's original soundtrack.

There are a number of in game groups that we love are great friends with, but a quick shout out to the Bucky Ball Racers, the Hutton Truckers, The First Great Expedition, Fuel Rats, Dragons and Canonn. You are all brilliant.
