Worldcon 75

The 75th World Science Fiction Convention, 9-13 August 2017, Messukeskus, Helsinki, Finland


Sponsor a Bench!

Following the deeply ingrained Fannish Tradition of two previous Worldcons, we are offering the opportunity to sponsor benches in the Exhibits Hall. Give weary convention members somewhere to put their feet up when they have spent too long wandering around the halls. Memorialise a friend, advertise your convention, or hide the secret of your success in a coded message.

Each bench comes with a plaque to hold a message with four lines of text, 20–25 characters per line. Bench sponsorships are €60. After the convention you get to keep the plaque (but not the bench).

Sponsor a Craft Lounge!

The problem with travelling is the waiting. The long wait for a space elevator capsule or dragon caravan (or for that programme item you really want to see) can get quite dull. Why not sponsor a craft lounge to help con-goers pass the time? Origami, knitting, colouring pages, paper constructions – we have a long list of suggestions and we are open to other ideas too. Craft space sponsorships are €500 and include a sign and a set of themed posters for you to keep. You are also welcome to keep any left-over craft supplies if you would like (or we will donate them to a good cause).
