(Un)Conventions

At (ir)regularly dates, there will be national as international meetups, with the purpose to trade or release books as also to meet bookcrossers you only know from the forum.

But there is only one official Convention: the birthday of BookCrossing.com. It takes place around the 17th of April and is called: Anniversary Convention. The place where this convention is held will be determined 2 year in advance by the bookcrossers themselves attending an anniversary convention.

All other national as international conventions are used to be called: UnCon. These are organized by the bookcrossers of the specific country on a yearly basis.

Remark: The French bookcrossers don't have yearly conventions this way. The just call from time to time a so called MegaBookCrossing-Treffen (--> MBC) in their country - whereby it may happen that there are more then one a year. For this list I just picked the ones with the most attendees in my opinion.
