1989 Worldcon Site Selection

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Site Selection for the 1989 Worldcon was conducted by ConFederation, the 1986 Worldcon. (1989 was the first Worldcon to be selected three years in advance, so ConFederation ran site selection for both the 1988 Worldcon and the 1989 Worldcon.)

The only bidder on the ballot was Boston in '89 which won and went on to run Noreascon 3. (The New York in '89 bid did not file and so was not on the site selection ballot.)
