[Click Here For Spanish]
In years in which the Worldcon is held outside of North America,a NASFiC (North American Science Fiction Convention) can be held. Since London (Loncon 3) was selected to host Worldcon in 2014,this leaves an opportunity to have a NASFiC next year. Leprecon,Inc. has announced at Renovation,the 2011 Worldcon in Reno,our intentions to bid for NASFiC in 2014,voting for which will be held at LoneStarCon 3 in San Antonio,TX in August 2013. We are planning to hold the convention early in August (Thursday July 31 to Sunday August 3,2014),which will not overlap with the dates of the London Worldcon or EuroCon (Dublin,Ireland,the following weekend).
Our planned location is the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel in downtown Tempe,Arizona. It has been the site for previous events sponsored by Leprecon,Inc.,including the 2009 North American Discworld Convention, FiestaCon (Westercon 62),the 2006 Nebula Awards Weekend,and World Fantasy 2004.
