The San José in 2018 Worldcon Bid, sponsored by San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, Inc., officially launched with a presentation, bid table, and party. Bid Chair Andy Trembley was there and made a presentation and answered question at Westercon’s “Fannish Inquisition.” The San José bid was also present at this year’s North American Science Fiction Convention, Detcon 1, and will also host a table at the 2014 World Science Fiction Convention, Loncon 3, as well as many other conventions in the future.
San José in 2018 is a committee of SFSFC, the parent non-profit corporation behind the 1993 Worldcon in San Francisco and the 2002 Worldcon in San José. SFSFC has also run Westercons, World Fantasy Conventions, SMOFCons (the SF/F conrunners convention), and other SF/F genre conventions.
The site of the 2018 Worldcon will be selected by the members of the 2016 Worldcon in Kansas City. You need to be a member of the 2016 Worldcon in order to vote for San José. For more information about San José’s bid to host the 2018 World Science Fiction Convention, see the bid’s web site.
