The advance sales of memberships and day passes have now been closed. We regret any disappointment that this may cause. Please see our announcement for why we have taken this step.
What are the differences between adult and child memberships?
All membership rates which are age-bound refer to a person’s age on the first day of the convention, 9 August 2017. Although a Kid-in-Tow is free of charge, please remember to register your wee ones as members. We need information about them in order to appropriately plan for your family’s participation and enjoyment of our convention.
Child and Kid-in-Tow memberships do not include voting rights. We advise you to buy or upgrade to a Youth membership if you are under 16 but want to have voting rights.
Do you offer refunds or transfers?
Your membership is personal, but it is possible to transfer your membership (of any kind) to another person. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to do this. The type of membership will be retained – child membership for children only, etc.
How will I receive publications and updates?
Worldcon 75’s default is that our publications (including the Progress Reports and the Souvenir Book) are available only in electronic form. However, those who wanted printed copies sent to them by post were able to pay an additional fee of €10/$12 to receive them.
The Souvenir Book will be given to all Attending members of Worldcon 75 at the convention, and posted later to any Attending members who were unable to be at the convention, and also to all Supporting members who paid for paper publications. In addition, the Souvenir Book will be made available in electronic form to all members for download from this site.
We regret that, although the above was our intention from the outset, the policy was not stated as clearly as it might have been, particularly in relation to the Souvenir Book, and we apologise for the confusion that this has caused. We have made the decision that, in addition to the electronic copy available to everyone, we will ensure that every Supporting member who wants a printed copy of the Souvenir Book can receive one. This may involve a nominal fee; details of this will be fixed and communicated to members after the convention.
How can I check my own membership status?
