ConFederation, the 1986 Worldcon, was held August 28 to September 1 at the Marriott Marquis and Atlanta Hilton. The GoH was Ray Bradbury, and the FGoH was Terry Carr. Bob Shaw was toastmaster. It was chaired by: Penny Frierson and Ron Zukowski.
Site Selection was unusual in that there were two simultaneous races, for the 1988 Worldcon and for the 1989 Worldcon, due to a switch from 2-year lead time to a 3-year lead time. The race for 1988 had as bidders St. Louis in '88, Yugoslavia in '88, and New Orleans in '88 which won the right to hold Nolacon II. The race for 1989 had as bidders New York in 1989 and Boston in '89, which won the right to hold Noreascon 3.
