These cities were selected by a vote amongst the members of Chicon 8.

The Business Meeting of Chicon 8, the 2022 World Science Fiction Convention, has announced the host cities for the 2023 North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC) and the 2024 World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon). These cities were selected by a vote amongst the members of Chicon 8.

Winnipeg in 23 will host the 2023 NASFiC in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
