A successful bid to hold the 2000 Worldcon in Chicago. See 2000 Worldcon Site Selection. It was led by Tom Veal.

During the bidding process, Chicago in 2000 issued 40 trading cards depicting a variety of science fiction authors and artists, including Gordon R. Dickson, Terry Pratchett, and Larry Niven. Any one who collected 20 of the cards and voted in site selection received a free membership conversion to Chicon 6. When the bid won, they issued a trading card #0 that announced their Guests of Honor.

It was opposed by KC in 2000 which withdrew from the race without filing, and a Boston Mountains in 2000 hoax bid.
