Starting Konflikt

It’s a truth universally acknowledged, that you should always pick a good Dead Dog Party to rope a tired con-com into arranging another big convention. Or at least, that’s how we do it in Sweden.

That’s why I jokingly suggested we do a Eurocon next, just as we were wrapping up Kontur 2017 in Uppsala. To be fair, I laughed and laughed and couldn’t even take myself seriously. The project just seemed too big at the time, and we were tired. And yet, a year later, I was in contact with the municipality and looking into potential venues, should we want to venture into the world of Eurocon bids and planning.

And suddenly, were here. It’s been a difficult and unusual year on a global level, but today marked the opening of Eurocon 2021 in Fiuggi. Tomorrow, we present our bid for Eurocon 2023, Konflikt, at the European Science Fiction Societies General Meeting.

In the meantime, we hope everyone else at this years Eurocon (who aren’t worried about winning bids) have an amazing time. Hope to see you all in Uppsala!
