Site selection for the 1950 Worldcon was conducted at the Cinvention in 1949. The bidders were Capicon in '50 (Washington, DC), New Orleans in 1950, New York in '50, and Portland in 1950 (represented by LA fan Forrest J Ackerman!)

Portland won and went on to run NorWesCon.

One commentator said, "the business meeting was filled with politics, with many fans scheming to keep the bid away from controversial, feud-ridden New York."
