The 2020 Worldcon bid, NZ in 2020, has changed their proposed dates to July 29 – August 2, 2020 in Wellington, New Zealand, due to a lack of facility availability for their original dates (August 12-16, 2020). The event would still be held at the TSB Bank Arena and Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington.
Chair Norman Cates said, “We appreciate that this date change would make our Worldcon early compared to previous Worldcons. We did a lot of debating about this, and moving the date was the best overall option to preserve our best possible Worldcon.”
The site selection vote will be held at Worldcon 76, August 16-20, 2018 in San Jose CA. The New Zealand bid is unopposed. For more information, visit the NZ in 2020 site.
