Utah in 2024, being the only bid for Westercon 76, has been voted the rights to host the convention. The site selection results were announced at the Westercon 74 Business Meeting in Tonopah on July 3.
The Utah in 2024 committee composed of Charles Galway as Chair, Cheryl A. Sneddon, and Mike Willmoth will hold the convention at the Doubletree Salt Lake City Airport which is located on the edge of the city and right by the airport. The dates of the convention will be July 4-7, 2024.
The Meeting also voted that they should find a sponsoring non-profit organization.
At present attending memberships are $50 and supporting memberships are $25. Anyone who voted in site selection already has a supporting membership and may upgrade to an attending membership for the difference in price, $25. The current rates will continue through at least December 31, 2022.
The committee says a website will be created soon. For more information or questions you can email them at email@example.com.
