Dublin's twin to host next Worldcon

Mon 3rd Sep 2001

Dublin's twin to host next WorldconNow that Milennium Philcon has ended, ConJose is the 'sitting' Worldcon. ConJose takes place from August 29 to September 2 2002 and is of interest to Irish fans for two reasons. One: San Jose, the convention's venue, is twinned with Dublin. Two: members of Con Jose will decide the location of the 2005 WorldCon. At the moment, the only nominee is Glasgow, Scotland. A Glasgow WorldCon will certainly be more accessible for Irish fans than a US one. And not just because of distance. The Glasgow committee has proposed August 4 - 8 2005 as the dates for the convention. The dates were chosen to facilitate US fans who might have wanted to combine a WorldCon trip with a visit to the Edinburgh Festival, but by strange coincidence, that weekend is also the Irish bank holiday weekend.
