Statement from DisCon III regarding Marriott Wardman Park
DisCon III is aware of the news stories that have been published recently about the Marriott Wardman Park and we are monitoring the situation closely. We are in contact with our salesperson at the hotel and other industry contacts, and are receiving updates. As the news stories made clear, there are ongoing discussions but no formal decisions have been made.
Just after winning the bid, DisCon III signed a contract with the Omni Shoreham Hotel for all of its function space and a significant majority of its hotel rooms. This contract is not impacted by the discussions at the Marriott Wardman Park.
Throughout all of this, DisCon III remains committed and confident that we will host a fabulous Worldcon in Washington, DC next year, and we look forward to welcoming you.
