Worldcon 75

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


Worldcon 75 will actively support members of the press and writers for online media who are covering the convention before, during, and after the event. We aim to provide information about this convention specifically, and about Worldcon, science fiction conventions, and the science fiction and fantasy genre in general.

Press Support

Worldcon 75 will offer a range of services to assist members of the press during the event. More information about press support will be published on this page later this year.

Press Credentials and Press Passes

A Press Pass is a complimentary admission to the convention that includes the right to attend the convention for a limited time. Press Passes are given to working press staff (see below) to allow them to access and move around the convention site. Press Passes do not include any WSFS membership rights. Anyone qualifying for a Press Pass automatically gets Press Credentials.

Press Credentials are given to regular (paying) convention members who are covering the convention for the press or online media as part of their attendance.

All members of the press are welcome to make use of the press services offered by the convention. The only distinction of a Press Pass is the complimentary admission.
