- World Con 2018 to be hosted by San Jose
- NASFiC 2017 to be hosted by San Juan, Puerto Rico
- San Jose won over New Orleans in site selection vote for 2018. Both cities have hosted a WC in the past.
Oddly, this WC like World Con 76 (Helsinki) seems to have decided not to give their event a name. Personally, I always liked the notion of every WC having a unique name, such as Chicon, Anticipation, Sasquan and so on. Ten years from now, will I remember where on earth the 76th World Con was held? Or even when?
