Seattle is a community of learners, doers, makers, and creators. Our region is a hub for writers, fans and creatives in the science fiction and fantasy industry.
It’s time to bring Worldcon back to Seattle for the first time since 1961.
There is no shortage of fun to be had in Seattle, whether your tastes run to the educational, natural, or quirky. We have all the amenities of a world class city surrounded by natural beauty and geological wonders—from symphonies to sports teams, the Museum of Flight and Boeing Factory Tour, the waterfront and famous Pike Place Market to MoPOP museum and the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Our region is well-known for its maker culture and tech entrepreneurs.
About the Convention Center
The Seattle 2025 Worldcon, if selected, will be held in the brand new Summit Expansion to the Seattle Convention Center in the heart of downtown Seattle. The still-under-construction Summit is a fully accessible building, with about 150,000 square feet of exhibit space and 100,000 square feet of carpeted meeting space, divisible into up to 62 meeting rooms, with extensive ballrooms and lobby space, a flex hall, and a lovely fourth-floor garden terrace.
