All Left Turns: Making the Right Plans
Our convention theme takes inspiration from a well known cartoon rabbit who liked to complain about our fair city: "I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque."
By taking left turns, we will be making Right Plans. A lot of our programming will emphasize the planning that goes into running a convention.
We will have other programming and workshops, including the traditional time where the seated Worldcons and NASFiCs as well as bids for future SMOFCons, Worldcons and NASFiCs will be questioned about their plans.
December 6-8, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque Hotel.
Programming will begin on Friday at 10:00am with the traditional daytime workshops and panels. Workshops will also be offered throughout the weekend. Programming will end at 3:30pm on Sunday.
We will have our hospitality suite open as much as possible from Thursday through Sunday.
