MicroCon 2021 is a micronational event that will occur during the summer 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be the fourth conference to be held under the MicroCon banner.

The event will be hosted by Westarctica and the Kingdom of Shiloh.

Background

Following the closed door sessions between Molossia, Ruritania, and Slabovia during MicroCon 2017, it was decided that an organizing committee should be created to vet and approve any future events that use the MicroCon brand. This committee would be comprised of current and past hosts of MicroCons and give approval by voting on proposals received from hopeful hosts.

Immediately following MicroCon 2017, Grand Duke Travis and King Timothy of Shiloh discussed the possibility of jointly hosting a summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. Vegas was selected due to its cheap flights, wide array of hotel options, and first class entertainment. Grand Duke Travis wrote the proposal and submitted it to the MicrCon committee in May 2019. It was approved two months later while the Grand Duke happened to be in Vegas with the Prince-Consort. The official announcement that Westarctica would be serving as host and the location of Las Vegas was announced by King George II of Slabovia at the conclusion of MicroCon 2019 to great fanfare from the audience.

Organizing Committee

The Organizing Committee is responsible for planning and organizing the activities, venue, and date of MicroCon 2021. The members are:

Planning process

The first planning meeting of the Organizing Committee occurred on 7 January 2020 at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA, only a few miles away from the site of the first MicroCon. The event's official website was launched two days later to share the committee's proposed schedule.
