Worldcon Bids

Here is a list of groups currently bidding (seriously) to hold a Worldcon. For more information about Worldcon bids and how the process works, see here.

The Worldcon web site does not conduct the elections to choose Worldcon sites. The elections are run by the administering Worldcon. Although the Worldcon web site team can answer general questions about Worldcon site selection, specific questions about site selection, eligibility to vote, etc. are the responsibility of the convention that is administering the election to choose that Worldcon.

If you are a bid and want to submit new/updated information about your bid to this site, use our contact form.

2019 NASFiC Bids

Because the 2019 Worldcon is outside of North America, members of the 2018 Worldcon will vote to choose the site of the 2019 North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC). See the NASFiC Bids Page for information about groups bidding to host the 2019 NASFiC.
