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, 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.
Our dates are December 6-8, 2019
We are still negoiting with hotels, but are focusing either in Downtown, or in Uptown near the Uptown shopping and dining district.
Our plans are to have the bulk of the programming Saturday and Sunday during the day, with some programming on Friday and evening events both Friday and Saturday.
Workshops will be scheduled throughout the weekend.
Our plans are also to have the convention hospitality suite (con suite) open as much as possible from Thursday evening through late Sunday or even into Monday morning
Albuquerque is a great city for visiting.
