Aussiecon Update

16 September, 2010 - 03:29

We had a major presence at Aussiecon 4, our first Worldcon as an official bid. Five bid committee members were at the con, and we ran very successful parties on the Saturday and Sunday nights, promoting both the bid and UK & Irish fandom, despite some difficulties with the party facilities.

Our membership desk took over 200 pre-supporting and Friend memberships, so we've now sold over 700 memberships for the bid since we launched it at Easter.

We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who worked on the membership desk and the parties -- we couldn't have done it without you.


There was some news of other Worldcon bids. A week before Aussiecon 4, a bid was launched for New Zealand in 2020. And at the WSFS Business Meeting, a group from Seattle announced that they were exploring the options for a 2015 bid. But no other bidders have come forward for our year, 2014.
