First, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and taking the CDC and local authority precautions seriously. Second, despite the current challenges placed on everyone, the AdeptiCon staff has continued working on many different fronts to finalize things when possible or at least create some more clarity on the most pressing issues facing our attendees. Here are some updates:
We have continued our discussions with the Schaumburg Renaissance Convention Center. The hotel has agreed to credit the One Night Deposit to AdeptiCon attendees. This process may take up to two weeks, so the hotel appreciates your patience. It is a manual process and continued calling may end up delaying the credit for everyone. However, if after two weeks (March 30th) you haven’t received the credit, the hotel would like you to contact them.
This weekend saw the staff begin taking inventory of all the AdeptiCon merchandise we currently have in our possession. We are still figuring out the feasibility and exploring options on making this material available. This includes badge upgrades. We are optimistic that we should have more details on this front soon.
We understand that many of our attendees are hoping to rebook travel arrangements. AdeptiCon 2021 will be held Wednesday, March 24th through Sunday, March 28th. A full-blown announcement on AdeptiCon 2021 dates will be forthcoming, but we wanted to provide the actual dates ASAP.
We have received numerous inquiries about supporting the great collection of AdeptiCon vendors and exhibitors. This has been heartwarming. We are currently compiling a list of vendors, with links. We should have this soon. Your continued support of their businesses online is incredibly appreciated.
Finally, there have been a lot of communications, inquiries, and suggestions about a virtual alternative to AdeptiCon. We here think that this is a great idea and we are absolutely working on some various options. We are working on something and should have more info shortly. In the meantime, keep sharing those pics of painted miniatures!
Again, thanks for your continued patience. With your help, AdeptiCon can emerge from this stronger than ever. To quote the imminent scholar John Blutarsky, “Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
