Smofcon Europe, a convention for conrunners taking place December 3-5 in Lisboa, Portugal asked Worldcon, Eurocon and Smofcon bidders to answer a questionnaire.
The responses have been posted at Smofcon Europe’s website here. (Direct links below.)
There will also be a series of Q&A sessions at the con on December 4 where bid representatives will make presentations and take questions.
Three other announced Worldcon bids submitted questionnaires to last year’s Smofcon but are not represented here:
- Jeddah in 2026
- Nice in 2026
- Orlando in 2026
Also absent is the Winnipeg in 2023 bid announced since the last Smofcon.
There is also an Australian bid getting organized.
- Brisbane in 2028
And there is pre-bid activity for two more locations, Dublin in 2029 and Texas in 2031, whose committees would not be expected to participate at this stage.
