Site Selection

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.

Most Costume-Cons hold an election to select the site of a future Westercon, which in this year’s case would be Costume-Con 43 (2025). However, because no groups filed a bid to host CC43, the owner of the Costume-Con service mark will make a Direct Award to host the 2025 Costume-Con, per the Costume-Con bylaws.
If an announcement is made during Costume-Con 39, there may be an opportunity to purchase a membership to Costume-Con 43 during the event .
