SFSFC announced today that the dates of the 2009 World Fantasy Convention have changed to October 29-November 1, 2009, rather than the following weekend as originally announced. Details of the announcement are in the press release and on the newly redesigned 2009 World Fantasy Convention website.
At their July 19, 2008 meeting, the SFSFC Board of Directors decided to not hold ConStruction, SFSFC’s series of convention-running conferences, in 2008. We now plan to hold one in 2009 and 2011, and are soliciting proposals from other groups to hold one in 2010 with our assistance.
SFSFC has announced a bid to host the 2011 Westercon. See the Westercon San Jose in 2011 bid web pages for more information. The bid kicks off at Westercon 61 in Las Vegas, July 3-6, and continues with an appearance at Denvention Three in Denver, August 6-10.
SFSFC will host the 2009 World Fantasy Convention in San Jose, at the Fairmont Hotel.
