DisCon III, the 79th World Science Fiction Convention, announced that it will be held as an in-person convention December 15-19, 2021, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The move comes “after nearly two-thirds of respondents to a public survey put out by DisCon III said they would prefer an in-person December convention over a virtual convention in August.” Virtual memberships to the December convention will still be available.
This marks the first time since 1948 that a Worldcon will not take place in August or September, and the first time a Worldcon will be held in December. Changes to the Hugo Award voting timeline will be announced April 13, 2021, with the release of the Hugo Award finalists.
