With the holidays over, we’re into Pride planning season! Before you get too involved, make sure you’ve got the key dates for 2019 in your diary!
EuroPride – Vienna, 1-16 June
Vienna hosts EuroPride for the second time this year (last time was 2001) and the organisers are planning two weeks of events, conferences, debates and, of course, the Rainbow Parade on Saturday 15th June.
Please share information about EuroPride 2019 on your Pride’s website and social media channels – we’d love to see crowds of European Pride organisers there in this momentous year!
WorldPride – New York, 1-30 June
As we mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, it’s fitting that WorldPride takes place in New York. There will be events throughout June, but the March will take place on Sunday 30th June.
EPOA Conference & AGM – Bilbao, 20-22 September
In a break with tradition, this year our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Conference take place not in the next city to host EuroPride, but in Bilbao, as voted by our AGM last year. We have listened to your feedback and will be including more seminars, discussions and plenary sessions, and with at least four Prides bidding for EuroPride 2022, it’s going to be an exciting and interesting AGM!
Early bird rates are €280 including two nights’ accommodation, meals and all events.
A discount for our AGM is available for delegates who are also attending the InterPride World Conference the following month.
InterPride World Conference – Athens, 17-20 October
InterPride’s World Conference returns to Europe this year, and is hosted by our member Athens Pride. It’s a great opportunity to meet Pride organisers from across the world, and participate in the vote to select the host of WorldPride 2023.
The conference fee is €195, rising to €220 from 1 February, excluding hotel. The Conference hotel rates start at €176 per night.
