Finnish fandom had a planning meeting over the weekend, and one of the decisions taken was that they would roll over their Worldcon bid to 2017. I know no more than that right now, but I am assuming they’ll be bidding the same facilities, and the same team, that lost so narrowly to Spokane.
The other bids for 2017 are Japan and Montréal.
A Helsinki win would, of course, be very helpful for the Dublin in 2019 bid.
I wish I’d been able to announce that live on the BBC. Ah well, I did get to enthuse about Finnish conventions.
