RoboCon 2020 UPDATE - Interactive Virtual Con!
We think it is safe to say that 2020 has been nothing like anyone could’ve possibly imagined. When we rescheduled the show for the end of July, we fully believed the U.S. would follow suit with much of the rest of the world, a decline in Covid-19 cases and a return to some type of normalcy. If you’ve been watching the news however, you will have unfortunately heard that the number of cases in the U.S. have increased at an alarming rate over the last three weeks. While things have actually continued to be very positive here in Kentucky, we do have a lot of people attending from out of state and we cannot predict where things will be by the end of July. Additionally, when you factor in the civil unrest due to current events that has directly impacted Kentucky, we feel we have no choice but to change this year’s show format to a Virtual Convention. We of course apologize for our inability to hold this show for you in person! We were looking forward to a fun show for everyone! Ultimately, the safety and well-being of our attendees, our vendors, and our convention staff is paramount.
We have been working with the Galt house in Louisville, and they have agreed to offer us an alternative date next year. While there is absolutely no way to tell where things will be in 2021, we are hoping that since the pattern has changed that we will be out of this by next Spring so we can hold an in person show again. We will plan for that. We will hope for that. And if it all works out, it will be a great show!
If you have already registered for RoboCon 2020 we will be offering either a full refund, a credit towards next years show, or the option to convert your package to the 2020 Virtual attending package. This will allow you to still receive the Convention edition of the BotCon legacy book, the Convention T-shirt, the Convention pin, the badge and lanyard, and a variety of other free items. Any registration that was placed after May 6 has already been converted to the Virtual Attending package. Emails are being sent to all registered attendees/vendors with your exact options.
So, while not the type of show we wanted to have this year, we’re going to go with it! And we’re still going to offer everyone at least some type of convention experience for this month! There will be panels, there will be previews, there will be a BotCon 2021 online Party, there will be swag! Door prizes, sale pricing and more! We will have the full schedule for the show up next week. We will also have all the details available for how you can take part in our Robocon 2020 Virtual Con!
