This is the official site for Jeddah’s bid to host the 80th Worldcon in 2022.
2022 May the 4th we’ll be with you in a city far, far away (not as far as NZ though). Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is the gateway into the Arabian & Islamic culture, where ancient traditions of SciFi such as 1001 Nights emerged.
Jeddah is a coastal city on the west cost of the Arabian Peninsula, the 2nd largest city in Saudi Arabia and is the main city that all Muslims come through both by land and sea on their way to Makkah. It is a very ethnically diverse city as people from all over the world immigrated to it throughout history.
Wither you enjoy water activities or prefer to hit the entrepreneurship scene, Jeddah is a major economical, cultural and entertainment hub.
