After the auction, a group of pros decamped to a TV studio for a round table as part of Dave Kyle's PR campaign, the first time an SF con had ever featured on TV. Ted Carnell was one of the pros, and when they returned to the hotel the first and main item of the evening was Ted's Fan Guest of Honour speech.

There were various bits of business after this, and the evening's programme concluded with a panel discussion, "Why Science Fiction," moderated by E.E. Evans, and featuring Lloyd Eshbach, Fritz Leiber, Milton Rothman, and Judith Merril.
