Happy New Year!

james - Posted on 01 January 2011

Welcome to 2011 everyone.

Although our convention is still three-and-a-half years away, this year looks like being a really busy one for us.

So far, we've identified a number of possible venues for the convention, and we have started visiting them to check which ones meet our needs. Once we've visited them all, we can make a short list of the most suitable ones, and start working out the details of the convention.

Although it's early yet, we've also been working on our dream list of guests. We've had some great ideas, but European SF is such a disparate universe that we've no doubt we're missing some great gems, so please contact us if you have any suggestions.

We'll be at a number of conventions around the world to promote ourselves. First is Phoenix Convention in Dublin, followed by Illustrious Eastercon in Birmingham, then Eurocon 2011 Stockholm, and Renovation, the 2011 Worldcon in Reno, Navada, and back home for Octocon. To round the year off, we'll be at SMOFcon 29, the convention runner's convention, which takes place in Amsterdam, and I'm helping to organise.

We hope to meet you at some of the above conventions, and we'll keep you posted on our progress during the year.

Finally, we feel that a great convention needs a great name, so we'll be announcing a competition to pick one for us. If we have enough suggestions we like, we may hold a public vote to decide on the best one.
