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.
When bids we previously listed fold, go on “hiatus”, or otherwise stop bidding, we display them here in strikethrough type.
If you are a bid and want to submit new or updated information about your bid to this site, use our contact form.
