The Asimov Centennial Meetup was held January 4th 2020 at the New York City College of Technology (home of the City Tech Science Fiction Collection) in Brooklyn. The GoHs were Sheila Williams, editor of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, filk musician Erwin S. (Filthy Pierre) Strauss, author of the SF Convention Calendar in Asimov's Magazine, and Andrew Porter, former editor of Algol, Starship, S. F. Weekly, and Science Fiction Chronicle.

The organizers were Olga Miroshnychenko and Flash Sheridan. The location is the same as the City Tech Science Fiction Symposium (Astounding 90 Years of Analog Science Fiction and Fact), and the group spun off from the New York City Sci-Fi/Fantasy Meetup Group, but it is organizationally distinct from both.

The meeting was announced in the Asimov's Magazine editorial for January 2020,[1] but some print issues were delayed “because of an ice storm.”[2]
