Con SuiteThe Con Suite is a fixture at Worldcons. While Worldcon Bidding cities and other organizations often have party suites to wine and dine (well, soda and chips anyway) the attendees in the evenings, the Con Suite is run by the Worldcon and is usually open all day, offering a place for fans to take a break and unwind.
Here's a note from some Nippon 2007 Committee members about the planned Con Suite.
A Little about Japanese and American Con Suites
This first con suite in Japan provided black tea, coffee, and Chinese sweets to attending members. (Yokohama, the site of HAMACON 2 and Nippon 2007, has the world's largest Chinatown outside of China.) Of course, a Con Suite will be featured at Nippon 2007; next year's staff members have been learning the ins-and-outs of con suites while helping at many Worldcons and other North American conventions.
For example, L.A.con IV's Con Suite offered many foods, including jam, bread (yes, even with a toaster!), cookies, oatmeal, orange juice, and boiled eggs - and various kinds of teas - in an all-you-can-eat buffet. The plan is to offer the same kinds of comforts at Nippon 2007.
