AdventureCon Moved to May

Originally scheduled for October 25 & 26 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AdventureCon has announced a month out that they have moved the convention to May 30 & 31, 2009.

On their web site, they posted the following announcement:

During this week’s Board meeting, it was discussed at great length postponing our upcoming AdventureCon event from October 25-26 in Glendale, AZ to spring 2009. The new dates for the show will be May 30-31, 2009. We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause but we feel that this change will benefit all parties involved.  

The current economy, gas prices and upcoming election were some of the determining factors.  We have also heard concerns from our dealers as well as several national corporate sponsors who are unable to attend/participate at the October event, but would be able to be part of a spring 2009 event.We know the importance of a successful first show. The first show sets precedence for the future. At the requests of dozens of emails from fans we will be adding exciting additions that we will be announcing in the upcoming weeks. These additions will include more guests and special programming.

It was going to be interesting to see how the convention would do as an outside group coming in.  I guess we’ll have to wait a few more months now.
