Dublin 2019

The 2019 Worldcon, Dublin 2019 was held August 15-19 2019 at the Convention Centre Dublin in Dublin, Ireland. Author Guests of Honor were Diane Duane and Ian McDonald, Editor Guest of Honor was Ginjer Buchanan, Science Guest of Honor was Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Gaming Guest of Honor was Steve Jackson, and Fan Guests of Honor were Bill and Mary Burns. The con did not designate an Artist Guest of Honor; rather, they had four Featured Artists: Maeve Clancy, Jim Fitzpatrick, Afua Richardson, and Sana Takeda. The Chair was James Bacon.

The convention booked extra space in a cinema complex 10 minutes walk away, but still struggled with queuing for programme items, but otherwise went very well, with some 5800 attendees on site. The newsletter, The Salmon of Knowledge was run by the Plokta Cabal.

Dublin in 2019 was selected at Helsinki in a uncontested race (see 2019 Site Selection results).
