Welcome to the home page of the Reno in 2011 Worldcon bid. On this
site you'll find everything you need to know about why we want to bring
the 69th World Science Fiction Convention to Reno, Nevada, in August 2011.
We've given you plenty of ways to find the information you're looking for,
including the menus at the top of the page and a
handy sitemap. And clicking on the cute rocket
guy in the top left of every page will always bring you right back here.
If you're new to Worldcons, we've provided an
introduction to the event, along with a useful introduction to some of the
terms you might not have heard before. And
we'd recommend that everyone takes a look at the
Why Reno? page, which explains why
we chose Reno and what we think is special about our bid. Beyond that,
just feel free to browse around - we have plenty of information on
Reno as a Worldcon host city, on
our facilities, our
vision for the convention, and our
bid committee. We've also produced a 4-page brochure that says more
about putting the Worldcon in the Biggest Little City in the World - why not
snag a copy?
If you want to know more, please come along and talk to us at one of
our many convention appearances. And
if you like what you see, why not join our growing list of pre-supporters and friends, and consider voting
for us in Montréal later this year?
For a more personal introduction, why not watch the video below of
Patty Wells, Bid Chair, presenting the Reno in 2011 bid at the Fannish
Inquisition at Smofcon in Columbus, Ohio, in December 2008. You can
find more videos on the Why Reno? page.
