Magic is Forever
Please join us for a truly magical weekend in Laconia, NH. Situated on Lake Winnipesauke in NH, the Margate Resort is an independent family-owned hotel, and for one weekend it is all ours. Yes, that's right- imagine a conference where the only other hotel guests are witches and wizards like yourself- that is the experience you will have at Aeternitas 2011.
Running from April 28, 2011 to May 1, 2011, Aeternitas 2011 will be a weekend you will never forget. Get ready for a weekend full of academic programming, Hogwarts inspired classes, quidditch, wizard rock, dance parties, a visit to a castle, a fabulous lakeside ball, a leaving feast, and much more.
Four days of pure fandom magic await you at Aeternitas. Being held just months before the last Potter film is released, Aeternitas is a conference focused on the continued life of our fandom. Our theme for the weekend is magic is forever. We believe that the friendship and family found in our fandom is forever. This conference is meant to celebrate that.
Aeternitas is like past and present Harry Potter conferences in many ways. It follows the Thursday through Sunday schedule. It consists of formal academic programming during the day, and has evening events like wizard rock shows and a formal ball like other conferences.
However, you will find that Aeternitas also differs from the other conferences in many ways. Aeternitas will be an intimate conference with a maximum of 500 attendees. By the end of the weekend we hope you will recognize the faces of all of the other attendees and feel a true sense of community.
The venue also differentiates Aeternitas from other conferences- unlike the chain hotels Harry Potter conferences are usually held at, the Margate Resort is an independent family-owned hotel. If our conference sells out, we will be the only guests on site during Aeternitas.
Cost is one of the biggest differences between our conference and others. We have kept the registration price as low as possible. The low registration cost combined with the affordability of the hotel makes our conference a very economical choice. We hope to give a lot of amazing and memorable experiences for as little a cost as possible.
Aeternitas will offer a little something for every member of our fandom. There will be cosplay, academic programming, dancing, wizard rock, pool parties, and so much more. Please use the navigation bar on the left to look at all of the things Aeternitas has to offer. Whether you are coming from New England or California, we hope you will join us for this fabulous event.
Any and all proceeds from this event will be donated to our two charities- The Harry Potter Alliance and The Lung Cancer Alliance.
