Dear Quinni-Con fans,
It is with our regret that we announce that we have decided to cancel Quinni-Con 2016. We worked as hard as possible to create an incredible experience for everyone, but after evaluating the circumstances that arose along the planning and actualization process along with feedback from the guests and prospective attendees about the venue, accommodations, events, communication, and organization, we came to the conclusion that it would be better to refocus our efforts into producing an event next year that would be a positive experience for all those involved. We apologize for those who were looking forward to Quinni-Con this year.
We want this cancellation to be as painless as possible for everyone, so we will be doing the following over the next couple of weeks:
- We will be reaching out to everyone who preregistered a badge to get your money reimbursed.
- We will go through all outstanding emails and address any that focus on issues not related to the con.
We have learned a lot from this year, and we have already identified ways to make next year better. For example, we are going to be updating our website regularly starting much earlier, showing you our attendees the process and thinking that goes into the con, establishing a more one-on-one relationship between our attendees and guests, and having a clearly laid out plan of action for implementing the con.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed thoughts, praise, and even critiques of the con. And thank you everyone for your interest for coming together as a group to celebrate the culture, art, and shows we all love: anime!
The Quinni-Con Committee
