So you might be wondering how does this compare to the last Furrydelphia which was held in 2019. It saw 1332 attendees. Beating it’s own total by 949, making it the 8th con to smash previous attendance totals
Melbourne Fur Con which held their very 1st con in 2019 before COVID. Then after that held nothing in 2020, while in 2021 it was a Virtual Con. To finally return in 2023, Registration will be open Sept 11 and will be covered after that date. But I am happy to see a con make it’s return.
Hi-ho folks! This Sunday we’re making a bit more of a formal announcement, as our Covid Policy has been updated and cleared for 2022. Please see the attached, and have a good rest of your weekend!
I reached out to a brand new fur con in the works named Las Vegas Fur Con. I know Las Vegas isn’t the first place you think about fur cons. So I reached out. I was contacted by Tanner there Public Relations rep for the convention.
Furry Times: Planning a fur con in Las Vegas must present some very unique problems
Tanner: A Las Vegas furcon certainly does – most venues are casinos and so are uncomfortable with fursuit heads near the gaming floor. This basically limits year one events to casinos where it’s possible to go straight from the hotel to the convention space (rare except for newer places) or non-casino venues, which is why we chose the Alexis Park.
FT: When it comes to furry Las Vegas usually isn’t the 1st place most think about. Could you talk about the fandom there, meets and the like.
Tanner: While the Vegas fandom is transient, it is actually very active: we have at least 4 active meetup groups and a student organization/club at the local university. The club actually is where a lot of LVFC’s initial board of directors came from.
FT: Seriously this interview has been so eye opening.
This is it as I can get what I need from your site.
Except for something I usually do at this point. Let you say whatever is on your mind.
Tanner: I’d just say that we’ve got a lot of stuff in store over the next several weeks and are confident we’ll be able to put on a really awesome event! With a hopefully minimal registration wait time since we plan to mail badges to attendees ahead of time free of charge.
Thank you for the interview; you’re always welcome to reach out to us for more!
