Because we did not reach our bare minimum goal in fundraising, The Boston Whovians have decided to postpone Boston BritCon to sometime next year. Although we have been planning the con for the better part of two years, and felt that there was enough interest, demand, and support to launch in 2019, additional time is going to be needed to enable us to put on the kind of convention we want to bring to Boston. We plan to continue organizing and planning the con during this delay, as well as launch a revamped fundraising effort sometime closer to the summer with different perks. We’ll also be looking to recruit staff members to fill vital positions in the con, as well as be a part of the executive planning committee.
We want to thank everyone who was kind enough to donate during our first campaigns, your support got us closer than we’d ever hoped even though we came up short, and we’re very grateful. We promise that if we’re not able to put on the convention at all, we do not intend to keep the funds raised and will instead donate them to a local charity. Please make sure to join our Britcon Facebook Group to keep up to date, and thank you again for all your support so far.
