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.
10/20/2019 - We have a schedule for progress reports 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 through July, 2018. Please look at the specified PDF for full price, and layout 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.
