the 1988 & 1997 World Fantasy Conventions,
the 2007 & 2010 World Horror Conventions,
and numerous British FantasyCons...
THE ONLY OTHER TIMES that the World Fantasy Convention has moved outside North America was in 1988 and 1997, when the event was held in London.
This venue is more than large enough to accommodate a convention the size of World Fantasy, and they offer the high room standards that our North American attendees in particular have come to expect. In addition, the surrounding amenities are second to none and, even more importantly, the proposed venue is an easy journey from London, where most of the UK publishing industry is situated. It is our objective to hold a World Fantasy Convention that is to a standard set by the very best of these events in the past.
We have a hotel and a location that is second to none. We have a dedicated and professional team whose experience of running conventions encompasses a wide variety of events and many decades of experience. And we have an intimate knowledge of fantasy, horror and science fiction publishing on both sides of the Atlantic that is guaranteed to support a varied, entertaining and informative programme that will appeal to all attendees, whether they are "old hands" at World Fantasy Conventions or relative newcomers.
This is your opportunity to participate in one of the most exciting and exhilarating conventions ever held in Europe for professionals and fans alike. If you are serious about your writing career or just enjoy reading in the genre, then you really can't afford to miss it .
