The Walker Stalker Con/Heroes and Villains Fan Fest event in Nashville, TN was originally scheduled to take place August 24th and 25th at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention center. That apparently isn’t going to happen now though, as the convention took to Facebook this weekend to announce that the event, just two weeks away, is being postponed to next January.
The convention’s parent company, Walker Stalkers LLC, has been having a number of issues this last year. We reported on a number of these back in April, and in July the Better Business Bureau told Nashville’s WSMV that consumers should avoid the event.
I don’t want to speculate on the interactions between of Walker Stalkers LLC and their now former venue, but regardless of what happened there, it’s never a good sign when an event has to either cancel or reschedule just weeks ahead of time. For a convention management company on the rocks, this doesn’t make me optimistic about their future.
