What is site selection?
Costume-Con is a traveling convention, which means that every year, someone has to volunteer (or bid) to host it in a new city. It’s a 2 year cycle, and the actual voting is done at the current year’s Costume-Con for the one to be held two years out. It was formerly a 3 year bid cycle.
Costume-Con 39 will be voting on Costume-Con 43 due to the year jump, and Costume-Con 40 will be voting on Costume-Con 42.
There is a voting fee, which applies towards your membership fee in that convention.
