It was announced yesterday on the EmotiCon Official Tumblr, and they have apparently started issuing refunds to those who have already paid.
Honestly? I’m a bit disappointed. I mean sure, their 2014 event was a disaster so huge it has spawned an internet legend where the memes will go on for years, but a part of me had hoped to experience the event for myself. I also always hope that conventions which fail their first year so spectacularly grow out of it — but rather than take the risk again, the organizers have decided to bow out.
I don’t blame them, but I’m still sad to see them go. Rest in peace EmotiCon/DashCon.
Thanks for the tip, Wurm!
