Eurocon 2008: Moscow and Budapest was in tie

In Kiev Hungary made a bid to earn the EuroCon title for the national convention (Atjaro Festival) in 2008. At the 28th EuroCon, during the ESFS business meetings Moscow and Budapest received the same ammount of votes (14-14) from country delegates, and finally the orange ballots of non-delegates pushed the title to Moscow.

The members of delegates are deciding every year the place of the two year later EuroCon. The result was a surprise for the Hungarian delegation as well, which means for us the western countries gave a big support to the idea. Hungary will bid next year in Copenhagen again.
