What is FarmCon?
At FarmCon, players, modders and developers of the Farming Simulator series meet in an atmospheric location. It will be a weekend where we have fun together and immerse ourselves in the history, technology and further development of the game. The developers of GIANTS Software have prepared a wealth of lectures and workshops and are looking forward to talking to you and getting to know you personally.

The exact program will be worked out and published until FarmCon. Lectures on modding with regard to the FS19, insights into game development and the presentation of the LS19 are planned.
I'm not a modder, what is there for me?
Apart from the presentations you will also be able to meet other fans, moderators and developers of GIANTS Software and talk about your common hobby. Further actions will be announced later.
