San Jose in 2011 is not the only fannish group using the San Jose Fairmont Hotel. Further Confusion is moving from their previous home at the Doubletree San Jose to the Fairmont San Jose in January 2010, and before the 2009 FurCon Masquerade, the convention played a introductory video produced in cooperation with the Fairmont to familiarize FurCon’s members with the convention’s new home. Although this video is specifically aimed at FurCon attendees, we think Westercon voters deciding on whether to vote for us would be interested in seeing this as well, not only because it highlights our proposed site, but because it demonstrates the interest that the Fairmont has taken in genre conventions.
FurCon have graciously posted their “Welcome to the Fairmont” video to YouTube, and we’re happy to include it below:
Our thanks to FurCon and to the Fairmont for remembering to mention our Westercon as one of the possible conventions that will be in the hotel in the future.
