The ZomBcon Staff recently released an official statement explaining their decision to cancel this year’s convention. Unfortunately this is just the latest in a series of difficulties for the organization, which has seen the removal of its Facebook page, internal power struggles*, and a failure to secure financial support:
To all of our undead ZomBconfans worldwide, it brings us sad news today on this holiday to officially announce our plans for a 2012 convention will not move forward.
After much hard work this past four months to find the proper financial support to pull the trigger on a 2012 convention to keep this great community undead, we must cancel plans for this year.
It’s sad to see such a successful and promising zombie convention implode. However, from the ashes of ZomBcon comes XomBcon International! Hopefully the organization will endure it’s growing pains, and return next year even bigger and better to truly become “The world’s premier Zombie Culture Convention.”
