Our team work hard on all fronts, Jo Thomas comes up with first draft of the programme, we ask and get help from both UK, US and fans from all over the world. We organise a first small get to know each other convention and work convention in the Hague, preparing ourselves to work as the “shadow committee” in Boston at Noreascon 3. There we officially become the seated worldcon with just one year to go.

In Germany the Wall comes down, which meant a huge number of fans from the former Eastern European countries gearing up to come to ConFiction in the Hague.
