Wolfgang started the thread so is responsible for the attendance list.

I have a full membership and will be there barring calamity.

TitanCon / EuroCon 2019 love any and all volunteers.  there is a volunteer form on the Eurocon website.  

 

 

I will be coming to both Dublin WorldCon and 2019 Eurocon in Belfast which just starts 2 days after Worldcon finishes.   transport between the 2 is easy with both trains and buses.  There are also plans to run special coach trips between the two taking in some of the sights.  It will be awesome.      Rates for EuroCon go up on the 1st of October.   currently they are £50 for full Adult attending and £10 for Supporting.     We had a special Worldcon deal that if you bought supporting membership this locked the price of upgrading membership so you only pay the difference and are not effected by any price increases.   - I do not know if this is still in effect now Worldcon 75 is over.       ahh gee bet you can't guess what I spent last week doing.

 

 

I also love that this thread is up and running so early.  although not as early as the Pebblecon thread that got locked for being so early.

I might not get a hotel at all! I live about 40 minutes away by train and might just have to suck it up...

I really hope I can attend this but I won't know for sure until 2019.

Having attended neither Worldcons nor Eurocons (not really a convention person, I suppose), I'm wondering should I attend Worldcon just to give people a familiar face for when they arrive at Eurocon?

 

Failing that, I suppose there's a perk in that it's an opportunity to ask Steve Jackson why his company treats people like unpersons for preferring OGRE to that card game. Hmm.

I have never been to WorldCon before, but I would really like to come. It's hard for me to make plans for 2019 right now, so I'll hold off buying my membership for a while. Anyone knows when they'll raise prices?

These prices are good until February 28, 2018.

I was wondering in Helsinki, how do they verify whether it's your first worldcon? Or is it more of an honour thing? Don't worry, I won't cheat :D

 

And since I'm posting, yes, we're planning on being there (and TitanEuroCon).

Having to commute every day would suck indeed but I guess it would make a lot of sense money-wise.

My full intention is to come to both events, but I haven't bought memberships yet. Will try to do that before Christmas.

@Wolfgang I Could be an idea to adjust the first post to mention EuroCon as well? We could also get a separate list for people just going to WorldCon and doing the double of going to both events?
