Worldcon Programme provides a way for Worldcon members to interact. Our members are writers, artists, editors, scientists, and many other things but we are all fans. Our panelists delight in informing, entertaining, and interacting with each other in a public forum, through our programme.

Our members will have many activities to choose from. They can take a morning walk with notable members along Wellington Harbor on a “Stroll with the Stars,” weather permitting. Members might hear our Author Guests of Honour Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon discuss their Elemental Masters books, our Fan Guest of Honour Rose Mitchell talk about Australian fandom, or our Artist Guest of Honour Greg Broadmore describe his secret pact with robots. You never know who you will meet and what you will hear at a CoNZealand Programme item.

Discussion Groups/Meetings/Meetups/Religious Gatherings

Most Worldcons have space for members to have informal discussion groups, meetings, meetups and religious gatherings on a space-available basis. These are generally held before 10am and after 7pm, though discussion groups held at a round table in an open area can run during the day. If you are interested in organizing a meetup, please complete this form by June 15; the sooner you make a request, the more likely it is that we will be able to fit you in.
