Elves of the world unite! You are called to the far north, along with all Klingons and Hobbits, time lords and superheroes. Finns love science fiction and fantasy, so hosting the annual Worldcon convention this August is a dream come true.

The World Science Fiction Convention, better known as Worldcon, is visiting Helsinki for the first time.
