The WorldCon is an eclectic mix of annual meeting, exhibition, awards ceremony, opportunity for making publishing deals and "old home week" for Science Fiction fans and professionals. The WorldCon is an opportunity to share ideas, experience, and the love of the fantastic.

WorldCons have grown impressively since their humble beginnings in New York City in 1939. The first WorldCon had about 200 attendees, mostly from the East Coast. Since then, WorldCons have attracted up to 8,400 members; about half of the WorldCon attendees are female; and WorldCon sites have included Australia, England,the Netherlands, Helsinki and Scotland. WorldCons are one of the few large conferences run exclusively by volunteers.
