Boston Comic Con Cancelled

By Shawn Scott Smith| April 19, 2013 | Comments Off on Boston Comic Con Cancelled

Due to the continuing drama in Boston, the Boston Comic Con has been postponed.
A statement on their website reads,
“Due to the unfortunate events that have transpired here in Boston, a lock down has been put into effect until further notice, causing the Hynes Convention Center to suspend all events. As such, The Boston Comic Con will be rescheduled to a date in the not too distant future.

All people who purchased advanced tickets on line will have their tickets honored at the rescheduled show. If for some reason, you can not come to the show on that date, we will refund your ticket.

Please, we ask for your patience, understanding, and cooperation. We appreciate your loyalty, and continued support for the Boston Comic Con. Unfortunately, this situation is beyond our control.”

It is good to see they will try to hold the show at a later date. Although not as important as what is going on in Boston right now, I do feel for the promoters who will lose a lot of funds as many of the guests had already flown into Boston, and most likely have hotel rooms that will still need to be paid for. I hope many of the guests will do something to help Boston Comic Con in the future to offset any losses this delay will cause, but at the end of the day the safety of the attendees is paramount.
