Due to recent events and Hurricane Sandy. Looks like I-con 32 will be postponed. No future date has been set yet.

Dear Member,

I regret to inform you that I-CON 32 planned for March 21st, 22nd and 23rd of 2013 has been postponed.

The factors leading to this decision include financial difficulties, challenges in moving a convention our size, and most notably repercussions of Hurricane Sandy and the nor'easter that followed shortly after.

The I-CON 32 team and the board consulted extensively on this matter, evaluating financial options, private funding, and substantial cuts to the convention itself. These options presented huge changes to the fabric of the convention - diminishing the experience, as well as leaving the organization financially insolvent for an I-CON 33. Ultimately this lead to the decision to postpone I-CON 32.

Any funds collected for member registration or dealers will be refunded as quickly as possible. This includes funds collected at I-CON 31, as well as any since that point. Should you wish to opt out of a refund and make a donation to ICON Science Fiction, Inc., you can let us know by emailing us at mailto:president@iconsf.org?subject=Membership%20as%20a%20donation. ICON Science Fiction, Inc. plans to continue our work towards our mission of education and outreach, including our scholarship program for 2013.

We will ensure that anyone who has supported us to this point is made aware of any new developments with the convention.

While I-CON 32 has been postponed, and no dates are currently on the table, I assure you that the team here is working hard to rebuild I-CON the convention. Our team moves forward with great resolve and heavy hearts.

Thank you,
Vince Collura

We can also add that Echo Base will not be attending Wizard World Philadelphia this May. This is due to the company's limitations on participating fan groups, and solidarity with Garrison Carida on these unfair limitations.
