Paris in 2023

(1) A Bid Announced August 2014

A (very) short-term bid to hold the Worldcon in Paris, France in 2023, at Euro Disneyland. The bid was announced shortly before Loncon 3 and presented there, but withdrew immediately afterwards. It was represented by its British agents Jonathan Jones and Sharon Lewis-Jones when its four when the four French members of the bid committee were unable to attend.

It seems to have been one of the shortest-lived bids which actually became real enough to have flyers and a serious proposal.

(2) A Bid Announced October 2014

When the August 2014 Paris in 2023 bid collapsed, a new Paris bid was formed by a committee consisting of Albert Aribaud, Sybille Marchetto, Alex Garcia, Patrick Moreau, Georges Bormand, Alain Jardy, René Walling, Jean-Louis Trudel, Jean-Marc Lofficier, and Benoît Robin. It is unclear if they are still bidding Euro Disneyland.
