Yes, every edition of X-Lan will have a number of competitive compo's and a fun compo in which several prizes can be won. These are mainly hardware parts and peripherals.

Can I bring my console to the event?

You can, as long as you do not exceed the provided seating arrangement and network connection. All rules regarding illegal software also apply to console gaming. Tables range from 1m(3'3") to 1.4m(4'7"), a single network port will be made available per participant.

What sanitary facilities do the venue provide?

Plenty of toilets are available at the venue. If you need to use the toilet for the disabled, report it at the beginning of the lan. This toilet will otherwise remain closed. Showers are not provided, but sinks are available.

Where can I put my car during unloading and/or parking in the duration of the lan-party?

The parking areas and loading/unloading zones will be indicated. If you are unsure about where to go, just ask the crew and they will gladly help you out.
