International OpenCon Catalonia (IOCC) is a weekend-long meeting in the Catalan countryside, open to anyone who knows that happy and honest relationships don’t have to be monogamous. It combines discussions, workshops and socialising to give you a chance to meet like-minded people, to build our community, and to celebrate its diversity.
[The 2018 IOCC has already happened. This page is now outdated – we will update it again in early 2019, in preparation for the next meeting]
When? Friday 18 (5 pm) to Monday 21 of May 2018 (4 pm).
Where? At Galliners, Catalonia (130 km north-east of Barcelona, between Girona and Figueres), at a beautiful remodelled country house (see the Venue page for details).
What? IOCC is an opportunity to get together in a friendly environment and share our experiences, our questions, the lessons we’ve learned, and the joys we’ve experienced in this new territory of polyamory/non-monogamy/open relationships. We’ll be about 40 people, and the basic plan is to combine workshops with plenty of opportunities for relaxing and socialising. Check the what will happen page for details on the programme as it develops. It won’t necessarily be the same as in past years, but check what happened in previous meetings to get an idea of how it could be, and don’t forget to read our Code of Conduct. Meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) will be provided from Friday dinner to Monday lunch. The menu will be vegan and gluten-free, mainly with organic ingredients, with a few non-vegan, with-gluten extras on the side. If you have any questions, check the FAQ page first, and if you haven’t found your answer there feel free to contact us.
How? Check the registration page for information on how to reserve your place.
How much? Registration costs 160€/person. This covers your share of the costs for the accommodation (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and all meals from Friday dinner to Monday lunch. You will be offered the option to contribute an extra 35€ to allow a participant with a low income to participate. Conversely, if paying 160€ would be an obstacle to your participation, you can apply for a 35€ discount.
