The 1988 Worldcon held September 1-5 at the Marriott, Sheraton, International Hotels and New Orleans Municipal Auditorium. GoH: Donald A. Wollheim, FGoH: Roger Sims. Mike Resnick was Toastmaster. Chairman: John H. Guidry.

NOLAcon II was the last con selected using a two-year lead time. At the same Worldcon (ConFederation) when it was selected, the 1989 Worldcon (Noreascon 3) was also selected.

1988 Hugos, 1990 Worldcon Site Selection.

Bidders: Bermuda Triangle Bid, New Orleans in '88, Cincinnati in '88, St. Louis in '88, Yugoslavia in '88, and Sydney Cove in '88 (which withdrew well before the vote). See 1988 Worldcon Site Selection.

Nolacon 2 was famously poorly organized, being saved by a big influx of fans at the last minute.
