The UK in 2024 Worldcon Bid team are delighted to announce that their chosen venue is the Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow.
Under its previous name as the SECC, Glasgow has hosted two previous Worldcons; Intersection in 1995, and Interaction in 2005. We are delighted to be able to revisit the SEC Campus, which has seen considerable growth in the last few years, including new onsite hotels, restaurants and development inside the convention centre itself. The venue has just announced a £200 million development plan.
Our team is a dedicated band of fans both local and international, old and new. Our working party and support team already contain previous Worldcon Chairs and Bid Chairs, who are volunteering alongside newcomers keen to bring Worldcon back to the UK. We draw our experiences from the many events that take place around the UK and beyond. There is huge enthusiasm to host a Worldcon after the successes of Loncon 3 (2014) and the ongoing passion for Dublin 2019, an Irish Worldcon (2019). Our Bid Chair is Esther MacCallum-Stewart.
Our community is a thriving one, and we welcome everyone to join us, share their ideas and celebrate the UK’s ongoing love of science fiction and fantasy.
We will start taking pre-supports during Dublin 2019, where we will have a formal launch party (we say formal, but there will be dancing!).
