75th Worldcon will be held in Helsinki, Finland in 2017.
Thank you all for your support. Thank you to the fellow bids.

Helsinki, Finland, is pleased to welcome the 75th Worldcon on August 9th through 13th 2017. In 2017 we will be celebrating our national centennial. We invite you to explore our unique culture, a blend of east and west. From museums to music, fashion to food, art and design, Finland has a lot to offer.

Helsinki is also a major hub to the other Baltic Sea countries. Our bid was active in 28 coun­tries around the globe, and we anticipate the amount of international cooperation to grow as the con comes to fruition. We invite you to be a part of the most north­ern Worldcon ever, at 60 degrees latitude. We wel­come volunteers, as well! Please contact us at volunteers@worldcon.fi with your name, your areas of expertise, and interests. We will contact you soon and look for­ward to working with you. Check out our Progress Reports and other publications for more news.
