Welcome to SMOFCon 37 1/4 

Our event has now passed but this website will remain up until August 2021. This was a small virtual event held in lieu of the postponed SMOFCon 38. This virtual event was put in place by the SMOFCon 38 Montreal (now 2022) and SMOFCon Europe (Lisboa 2021) teams. 

SMOFCon is an annual convention for organisers of science-fiction and fantasy conventions, where there is a chance to share ideas, discuss solutions, and talk, learn and develop on matters relating to their passion for running conventions. 

If you are a member, we would love to hear from you. We also need your permission to share your contact information with the next two SMOFCons. Please fill out this form to give us permission (if you haven't already) and/or feedback about the event.

Feedback form

We will amalgamate the information from feedback forms and publish the information on this site in about a month. Please check back in late January 2021.

This year we had five Programme items. Three "Question Time" sessions for seated and future Worldcons and SMOFCons, a discussion on this year's pivot to virtual events and a chat with the chairs of CoNZealand. 

Joining was free with required registration.
