VCON 2021 is about Looking Forward, Looking back. Do you have a story about the fun times you’ve had at VCON? Let us hear about it! We’d really love to hear from individuals who met at VCON or even a family that met there and now have kids that attend too!

Tell us your VCON Stories

We are looking for Volunteers for VCON 50. VCON is a volunteer-run convention. We need all the help we can get in almost every area. As VCON 2021 will be primarily an online event, we are looking for people with electronic skills this year. If you are interested in helping don’t hesitate to reach out.

VCON 2021: Looking Forward, Looking Back!

2021 marks 50 years since the first VCON, held at UBC in 1971. Our first Guest of Honour was Ursula K Leguin, and that was her first convention as Guest of Honour! our history is full of wonderful moments and anecdotes, and we hope to relive many of the great moments and guests as we look back at 50 years of VCON.

Looking forward to the next 50 years, Science Fiction and Fantasy have become a real part of our life. Virtual Reality, pocket communicators, transparent aluminum, Mars missions, Hyperloop travel are all accessible . We have 3d printers, Home Gene Mod kits, vat grown meat, wireless communication, wireless power, and planet wide collaboration opportunities. We all have the ability to dream, and bring those dreams into being… What will that look like?
