Share your City by hosting the annual 2015 Convention! (Edited to add bids for 2015 are closed)
Bids for the 2015 Convention will be presented at the 'Sweden' 14th-year Anniversary Convention later this month, though you need not actually be present to throw your hat in the ring. Someone still to be determined will pitch your city on your behalf, or share your persuasive video tape and script with the attendees. Consider hosting the Anniversary Convention in 2015 and send us your bid (slideshows, videos, text, etc.) through our contact form no later than April 17, 2013, so we can present your bid to the group.
I could blame a certain New Zealand bookcrosser who is staying with me at the moment for firing me up but as I could have said No then I won't ;)
I think I'm going to get intimately familiar with Oxford over the next 2 years. Bring it on!!!
It will be my pleasure to give back to the International BC Community after all the great welcomes that I have had at conventions abroad :)LOL! You give enough, just by attending and being totally awesome.
Also, my bank balance will be flat after Australia 2014 so I'll only be able to go as far as Oxford in 2015!! (13 miles)!
Looking forward to seeing you again next year. Next year!!! In Melbourne!!!!
(not volunteering to be involved as I live several hundred miles away in Scotland, but it's such an amazing city)
Not sure after reading all of the above....IS it Oxford in 2015?
Yes! You can see it listed on the Conventions page: http://www.bookcrossing.com/convention
We had the 2006 convention in Toronto. Vancouver or Montreal, or Halifax would be great venues too for a future Convention....
Get a group together for one of those places, and have them present a bid. I agree any one of them would be grand, but would need a team of local members to make it all happen.
