About Confiction 1990

It all started with a phone call from a fan in New York way back in 1984. Then it took three years of bidding to win the race in Brighton in 1987. Another three long years to make ConFiction1990 a fact in The Hague, the second World Science Fiction Convention on the continent of Europe.

We have created this website and social media avenues to preserve the past for the future and… to promote our intended Reunicon 2020 to commemorate 30 years after ConFiction 1990. Not only attendees and supporters from the original convention are welcome, but all science fiction & fantasy fans from all over the world are welcome. And who knows, your visit might ignite a spark in your local fandom and before you know it, you are organising the next Worldcon yourself!

We look forward hearing from you or seeing you in 2020 in The Hague and till then, enjoy the memories we wish to like and follow or share with you all ConFiction1990.

For Reunicon 2020 we intended to use the The Hague Marriott hotel. Due to an unforeseen refurbishment in August 2020 we lost our function space and were forced to move to another location. We have chosen the Crown Plaza – Promenade Hotel, also close to the original convention site. We have blocked a number of single and double occupancy bedrooms at special rates in this five star hotel for our members. 

We will shortly place a direct booking link for our members on this website where you can book your room at these special rates. We urge you to use  this link. 

Our event will start on Friday evening and will end Sunday morning; however, you may book additional days at the hotel prior and after the event at the special rate should you wish to come earlier or stay longer for a short break in the Netherlands.

We intend to have the booking link become available early November 2019, so you can plan your 2020 holiday break as soon as the link is placed on this website. Please stay tuned for more information.
