Welcome to Glasgow 2024: A Worldcon For Our Futures
We are delighted to be holding the 82nd World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) at the Scottish Events Campus (SEC) in Glasgow, Scotland from August 8-12, 2024.
Glasgow is a vibrant city filled with science fiction, fantasy and inventiveness, and our team aims to bring our love of these to the 82nd Worldcon. Under its previous name as the SECC, Glasgow has hosted two previous Worldcons: Intersection in 1995, and Interaction in 2005, it also hosted COP26 in 2021. 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 center itself. It will serve as a hub for a fantastic Worldcon.
Our Chair is Professor Esther MacCallum-Stewart and our team is a dedicated band of fans both local and international, old and new. Our convention committee and staff contains previous Worldcon and Bid Chairs, who are volunteering alongside newcomers. We draw our experiences from the many events that take place around the UK and beyond. Glasgow 2024 will be building on the success and enthusiasm present at Loncon 3 (2014) and Dublin 2019, an Irish Worldcon (2019).
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.
