KyoKyo 39 Posted January 28, 2021 Report Share Posted January 28, 2021 (edited) I'm sure many of you have received the email from Brooke Zerrlaut about the future of Otakon. The prognosis certainly doesn't sound positive but I'm wondering if there are any long-term plans to reboot the convention in the future if the con does in fact permanently close its doors in its current form. It seems many large fan-run conventions will not make a full recovery from this and the con industry in general is going to take a massive hit, especially those like Otakon that will potentially lose 2 years worth of attendance. (Others like Katsucon were lucky enough to squeeze in before the 2020 shutdowns.) It seems like many big staples of the con scene will either be permanently shut down or have to restructure or downsize. I'm hoping Otakon makes a full recovery as my group has been going since 2004 but I'm not entirely optimistic. Edited January 28, 2021 by KyoKyo 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
