Florida Convention FX International Has Been Cancelled
Yep, it’s official. FX International, an Orlando convention that had Star Trek‘s Leonard Nimoy as a guest just last year, has been cancelled. The news broke today on the official website, with the following message:
Dear friends & FX fans,
Due to circumstances beyond my control FX 2010 has been cancelled.I am as disappointed as you are and I personally apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you. If you purchased tickets for the show, they will be refunded. Exhibitors & creators, you will be refunded for your booth(s)/table(s). I have loved promoting FX and I have every intention of getting back in the saddle and hope to announce something else in the near future.
Thank you for all of your years of support.
FX International had previously announced that they were back on for October 16 – 17, 2010 at the Gaylord Palms back in April of this year. In fact, CreatureCon, another Florida convention, actually moved the dates for their event out of deference to FX.
Fortunately, it does sound like those who pre-registered and purchased vendor space will be getting their money back. This is the second convention this month that has cancelled with only a few weeks to go before the event (the other was Whedon Fest in Canada).
As always, we’ll keep you updated if we hear more.
