CoKoCon Cancels 2020 Event
With great sadness, we’re announcing the cancellation of CoKoCon 2020, which would have taken place over the Labor Day weekend.
We’ve been paying close attention to COVID-19 ever since early March when it started prompting conventions to cancel or postpone. We’ve held out hope that this pandemic would wane soon enough for the world to find a safe new normal, but it’s become clear that that is not going to happen in time.
Our chief concern is always for the people who make CoKoCon such a special place: our guests, our participants, our members and our staff. At this time, we have to acknowledge that we’ll be unable to guarantee a safe and healthy environment for everyone, so it’s our duty to cancel CoKoCon 2020 and shift our focus to CoKoCon 2021.
All purchased memberships for CoKoCon 2020 will roll automatically to CoKoCon 2021. While our policy has always stated no refunds, we’ll waive that here if anyone prefers a refund in this instance. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications for CoKoCon 2020 will roll automatically to CoKoCon 2021 unless you, as a dealer, fan table coordinator, party host, gamemaster, etc. choose not to do so. Again, just contact email@example.com.
If you have a hotel reservation, we would recommend that you contact the hotel directly to cancel. Their phone number is (480) 967-1441.
As we have other Guests of Honor already contracted for 2021, we’re talking with our 2020 GoHs about moving them to 2022. We still very much want to bring them to CoKoCon and we know that you want us to do so too. We are very happy to let you know now that Steven Barnes and Linda Addison have already agreed to be GoHs at CoKoCon 2022.
We’ll be rolling the CoKoCon website from 2020 to 2021 over the next couple of weeks and it’ll include announcements of our 2021 guests, along with all other details and new forms.
As a sneak peek, we can proudly announce now that our Author Guest of Honor at CoKoCon 2021 will be the multi-award winning Seanan McGuire. You may know her from her best-selling October Daye or InCryptid urban fantasy series; from her Hugo, Nebula and Locus Award winning Every Heart a Doorway novella; from her Newsflesh or Parasitology books under the name of Mira Grant; or from her non-writing work as a filker or podcaster. Other GoHs will be announced shortly.
If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d have loved to have seen you at CoKoCon 2020, but for now please keep yourselves safe and well and we’ll see you at CoKoCon 2021.
