MidAmericon was the name of the 34th World Science
Fiction Convention (WorldCon). Also known as "Big Mac," the convention
was a catalyst for the growth of science fiction fandom in a 4 state area
and was the first WorldCon that many current con runners attended. Mid
American Conventions, was not directly involved in Big Mac, but many MAC
members participated in that convention and its heritage.
In 2003 Mid American Conventions conducted an unsuccessfull
bid to host a second Kansas City area WorldCon on the 30th anniversary
of the first. In 2006 Mid American Conventions conducted an unsuccessful
second bid to host the WorldCon.
The third time was the charm and Kansas City hosted its
second World Science Fiction Convention in 2016.
