I'm pretty sure you'll get at least one visitor from Africa... I've been wanting to go visit friends in NZ for a while... Saving up my air miles.
In the meantime, see you all in Denmark !

Basically, if you come to the IUF and say "Hey, I want to host the next Unicon" they'll jump all over the idea. In very rare cases there will be more than one potential host and they'll both want to host the same year. This just happend with a second bid from South Korea. In this case, the IUF Board and representatives voted. NZ was (to me) the logical choice as the organizers have been around unicycling (and Unicons) for many years while the Korean group is very new to the scene. Hopefully they will want to host in 2012 or later.

If, on the other hand, you come to the IUF and say "Hey, I want *someone else* to host the next Unicon in my town", the IUF will say "Who's the someone else?"

I want to expand a bit on what John Foss said regarding decisions on where to hold future UNICONs.

UNICONs are proposed, planned and ultimately run by local organizing committees. I went through this process between 2000 and 2002 when I served as chairman of the local organizing committee and, subsequently, event director for UNICON 11. Without massive commitment from local organizers, UNICONs simply would not happen.

I love going to Unicon and for me the further from home the better. I haven't been to New Zealand since 2004 and will love going back. What Tad says is SO true. You wouldn't believe how much work goes into putting on an event of this size. Unicon doesn't just happen. It is a MASSIVE amount of work.

THANK YOU KEN!
