Furrnion poster, featuring Bertín and Doña Ana; art by Norcus A new event, Furrnion, has been announced as "the first Spanish furry convention".

Slated for January 2017 in Madrid, the event is being organized by a team of "more than 20" led by local furs Salmy, Troxy and S-Cheetah.

Furrnion is to be presented in English as well as Spanish, in the hope of attracting dealers and attendees internationally. Features outlined on its website include a dealers' den, art show and auction, nocturnal raves, and a fursuit lounge.

Staff are still being recruited; registration is to be opened in April, assuming all goes to plan.

The first local event - Ibercamp, a mountain camp launched in 2012 - attracted 60 furs in its second year, but was not held subsequently. August 2015 saw the introduction of another camp, Furbest, with 29 listed attendees (video).
