Constantinople was a one-off Melbourne convention. Here’s their first progress report, which is A4, single sided:
Progress Report Zero February 1991

Welcome to the first Progress Report for Constantinople, a convention to be held in Melbourne over Easter 1994.
The reason you’ve heard about us already is because we plan to host the 33rd Australian National SF Convention then, and letting you know at Suncon seemed appropriate. We hope you will all attend Syncon next year and support us.
So far we have a Bid Committee, an array of helpers, and negotiations are underway to secure a Hotel, as well as a Professional and Fan Guest of Honour.
Our Bid Committee consists of James Allen, Jan MacNally, Karen Pender-Gunn, Alan Stewart, Glen Tilley and Apollo Zammit. Carol Patterson will be running the Fanroom; Tom Marwede and Donna Heenan will be involved; Marc Ortlieb and Roger Weddall have volunteered to help Registration; and we’re just getting going!
We’d love to hear from you and can be contacted at PO Box XXX, World Trade Centre, Melbourne, Victoria, 3005 AUSTRALIA.
