Four cities have answered Chicon 8’s call for Future Worldcon Bid FAQs.
They are Seattle (2025), Cairo, Egypt (2026), Tel Aviv, Israel (2027), and Kampala, Uganda (2028).
Now there’s a fascinating prospect — back-to-back Worldcons in Egypt and Israel. I’m just going to spend a moment grokking that.
Cairo — PharaohCon – is the new venue proposed by the former JeddiCon committee, which started out bidding to host the Worldcon in Saudi Arabia.
Here is Chicon 8’s list of known Worldcon bids, with links to the four questionnaires they’ve received.
- Cairo, Egypt
