Nippon 2017 Worldcon Bid
The Nippon 2017 Worldcon Bid Committee has resumed working on its bid!
The official site for the bid is www.nippon2017.org
The nippon2017.us web site is a western observer of the Japanese Worldcon bid, independent of and not associated with the Bid Committee, but dedicated to encourage and assist them in returning the Worldcon to Japan.
We intend to post news and information on the bid as the Bid Committee announces it, but as they have not yet made any posts on their site (and are not expected to for a while), we will deal only with peripheral matters important to western fen, such as travel to Japan, Japanese cultural differences, etc.
Supporting the Bid
The Bid Committee has set prices for Pre-Supporting the Bid:
• Pre-Support: $20
• Pre-Oppose: $20.17 (EXACT CHANGE ONLY)
• Friend: $120
