Since I am based in the Netherlands I basically only know of Dutch (and some Belgium) shows, so I will start with making the calendar for these countries. But if anyone knows about any other shows in other countries please just leave a reaction I will edit the OP.
Is this thread only for Active events or Will It have historical values?
I mean, you will ever count past events or just plan to make a calendar for 2023 and forward to everyone who’s interested into going to them in the future?
I did not think historical dates would be useful, but I also have not been regularly updating this thread. When I update it today I think I will delete all the old events, but if you think it would be useful please let me know:)
Understood, for past events eventually we’ll make another thread.
I think it’ll have some value to document past events like pokumon does, honestly.
But since it’s not the case now I’ll just go with this:
Pokémon special 2023, between the 3rd and 4th of June in Italy, Torino
Not sure yet what’s about, source say it will be related to TCG, VGC and Pokémon GO.
It should be a parallel event to the one you listed on 18-19 of March in the Netherlands, so you may know more than me about it
Just updated the OP, with the Italian event as well. I was not at the event in Utrecht unfortunately. The event was huge, but focussed more on the actual card game than on collecting, but I heard there were some nice mini games and all collectors I spoke to that attended had a great day as well.
Ive been to several (in the netherlands) and it is always worth it to go! Not only to buy (although there is a great amount of pokemon stuff, with a lot of slabs), but also to meet new collectors which are just as passionate!
I would say the biggest one (stature wise) was the Pokemon Regional Championships that were held in March this year. Although I could not attend that, I did attend another local event where I did manage to meet one fellow E4 member @thymeee
Considering it was my first event, I had a lot of fun just exposure wise. There was a lot of things going on to be able to grasp everything fully and I took some time to get into the groove fully. I am unsure of what a big event is supposed to look like, maybe some more experienced members can fill that in. But indeed, would be nice to have a E4 EU meetup someplace / time.
