Gushing over Eroticon 2017…

The conference is over, the sponsor stands all packed away, and hopefully you’re all enjoying a well-earned rest before you take all the inspiration and advice and start creating amazing blog posts, stories, videos and art.

Thank you so much to each and every person who came to Eroticon 2017. You took a gamble on our first year of running it, for which we’re incredibly grateful, and we do hope to see you again next year! The next Eroticon will be held on the 17th/18th March 2018.

But before we start planning, we’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who contributed their time, effort and resources over the course of the weekend. We wanted to put all the links in one place so it’s easy for you to link to them and find their work.

Eroticon 2017 sponsors

Our fantastic sponsors make it possible for us to put on this event, and the more value we can show our sponsors the cheaper we’re able to make tickets in future years. Please do link to them and follow them on their social channels where you can. If you didn’t get the chance to chat to our sponsors at the event, but you want to collaborate/review their products/just send them some love, let us know and we can put you in touch.

Thank you to these three wonderful people for entertaining us all on Saturday!

Book people!

There are two incredible people who helped bring books to Eroticon – in the physical and the metaphorical sense.

Anna Sky – fantastic editor of our Eroticon anthology and founder of Resonance Press, who worked so hard on a very tight deadline to make sure the book was ready in time for the conference.

Victoria Blisse – author and all-round excellent person from SmutUK, who brought lots of great books to Eroticon, and managed the sales of other people’s, so that delegates could pick up some sexy reads for their journeys home.

And of course all of the amazing authors in our Eroticon anthology.

Eroticon ambassadors + volunteers

Behind the scenes and right in the middle of the action, all of these people made such a valuable contribution we absolutely couldn’t have done it without them.

Arlington House staff

The fantastic team at Arlington House worked their socks off over the weekend, and throughout the year as we planned the event. It can often be tricky to put on sex-related events as some venues are funny about it, but the team at Arlington were supportive and encouraging, and were a pleasure to work with.

So huge thanks to Yusef, Kamal, Anthony and the rest of the team for all their help. And if any of you are planning corporate conferences, here are the details for the Arlington House conference center. It’s a social enterprise, so their profits are poured back into their mission work – helping homeless and vulnerable people in London.

Ruth Douglas aka Ruby Kiddell

We couldn’t possibly write this page without giving a huge thank you to Ruth Douglas – aka Ruby Kiddell – the original founder of Eroticon. She started a fantastic event, and laid the foundations for an amazing community. Thank you so much!
