As we progress, we will update our publications page here with information on Progress Reports, Program Book, Restaurant Guide, Pocket Program and other possible convention options. 


Please note: Until the vote in August for our 2019 NASFiC bid committee, both the current Westercon 72 and the NASFiC Bid will co-populate progress reports from the Utah teams with information for everyone.


The Westercon 72 Progress Report is sent to all members and supporting members of the convention as well as supporting and prospective members interested in Utah for NASFiC 2019. These reports will detail all the work that is being done to prepare for the convention and show all new information that we can publish. This may include guest and membership reports, art show and dealers room, costuming and masquerade, gaming, marketing and advertising, and articles of special interest.

All mailed progress reports (0.1 - 0.3) will be full color on 8.5 by 11 inch paper with half inch borders all around (7.5 by 10 inch). The on-line progress report will be 8.5 by 11 inch with half inch borders all around (7.5 by 10 inch), full color in PDF format, ready to be easily distributed by any of the advertisers  to their own customer base.

What is a Westercon?
In 1948, Walter J. “Doc” Daugherty of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society proposed that an annual West Coast convention be started for West Coast fans who couldn’t afford to travel east each year. The first Westercon was held in September, 1948. It was a one-day event with an attendance of 77. It wasn’t until 1951 that the Westercon became a weekend-long event, settled into the July 4th holiday and began traveling to different cities. For a full history and traditions of this regional event, please visit
