ICON is excited to announce V-ICON (virtual ICON) will take place on Friday, October 9, and Saturday, October 10, 2020, at no cost to attendees!

More details will follow in email and on the web site, but here are some hints of what to expect:

  • Friday will be opening ceremonies and a streaming concert by Wylde Nept. (We cannot thank our very generous donor enough for covering the full cost of Wylde Nept’s appearance.)

  • Saturday panels, readings, and discussions.

  • Gaming. Yes, there will be on-line gaming. Did you doubt it for a second?

Please visit the ICON web site to volunteer, offer panel suggestions, and check for updates.

Stay safe. We look forward to seeing everyone in person again soon!

What are the dates for V-ICON?

Friday, October 9, and Saturday, October 10, 2020

Why was ICON 45 changed from in-person to virtual?

After considerable discussion, restrictions on large gatherings and concern for the health of attendees made it clear we had no choice but to cancel the in-person convention.

How can I ask more questions?

Please message ICON on Facebook or via our web site contact page.

ICON hopes you are okay and safe in this difficult year. The impact of the global pandemic combined with the regional derecho has caused stress and uncertainties for many. The volunteers of ICON understand, some through personal experiences. We are here to continue supporting you and the community that loves speculative fiction.
